Pretec is currently sampling 128MB C-Flash to major mobile phone makers, with capacity of 1GB available by Q2 of 2005. Mobile phones with C-Flash bundling will be in the market start from Q3 of 2005.

Pretec will also offer various adapters for C-Flash such as SD, miniSD, MMC, RS-MMC and USB; users will be able to use the C-Flash card, in a variety of devices with different slots, like digital cameras, mobile phones, MP3 players, handhelds, etc.
