Sony Ericsson to drop M2 for Micro SD

Proprietary out, standard in

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

A Sony Ericsson executive has hinted that the firm will drop the Memory Stick Micro - aka M2 - storage card format from its future phones.

The firm recently unveiled two new phones - Yari and Aino - both of which support the Micro SD memory card format instead of Sony's proprietary M2 format, which it’s been pushing since about 2006.

Upcoming SE phones are also known to use Micro SD rather than M2, too.

So that's it for M2, then? "Yes, we are moving in that direction,” SE’s Global Marketing Director, Fortuné Alexander, said recently, Trusted Reviews reports.

A timeline for M2’s phase-out hasn’t been announced. ®
