MobileLite G3 supports SD/SDHC/SDXC, microSD/SDHC/SDXC and MSPD. It allows users to carry a single device to store, transfer or read data on any USB 3.0 or 2.0 host device, while using a variety of Flash cards for mobile phones, digital cameras, tablets, netbooks, computers, MP3 players and more. MobileLite G3 meets the USB 3.0 specifications and SDA 3.01 standard, and is backwards compatible with USB 2.0. With full USB 3.0 support, the card reader can take advantage of the high speed interconnect, especially if one uses high capacity memory cards. With Samsung having already started with the mass production of their new UHS-1 memory cards, which are capable of speeds of up to 80 MB/s, it’s high time we had a faster interface for our memory card readers. The new card reader will be available across the country in all major electronics outlet stores.
