The MultiMediaCard Association (MMCA) has developed and is expected to market its dual socket solution, a memory card slot that support both the MMCmicro and the competitive microSD memory card format, to the mobile phone manufactures.
The MMCA is hopping to catch up some lost ground to the more or less de-facto memory card format for mobile phones, microSD. This move in combination with the newly introduced 2 GB MMCmicro is expected to penetrate the market for mobile phones better.
According to the MMCA mobile phones supporting the dual socket solution will arrive by the fourth quarter of 2006. Still it may take some time for them to do that since no announcements has been made by any larger mobile phone manufactures for supporting the dual socket solution in their new developed mobile phones.
This solution is really good news for the consumers, since they will have the opportunity to choose any of those two cards for their mobile phone.
