Sony Ericsson Ditching Memory Stick Micro for MicroSD

So it’s not that often that I poke my nose into products that don’t interest me, but I think Sony Ericsson deserve a word for this one.

Posted over at Engadget it seems Sony Ericsson are stopping the use of Sony Memory Stick formats in their mobile phones in favour of the standard MicroSD. This is great for consumers who will be able to port cards around between phones and other devices now without the need to carry around converters for the Sony memory stick formats.

It’s all a step towards convergence for the mobile market including the not-so-recent news that a number of mobile market players announced they will be standardizing on MicroUSB ports for their devices.
