PNY adds first company card reader to product list

PNY has been long known for making various hardware devices such as video cards and memory cards, to say the least, but until now the company lacked a card reader device under its own brand name. This omission, however, will be corrected with the announcement of the PNY CR001 card reader.

The device fully supports SDHC, MicroSDHC, CompactFlash, MMCplus, Memory Stick Pro Duo, Memory Stick Micro and xD-Picture memory cards. In addition PNY uses a memory controller that reaches 10 000 IOPS of read/write speed. The PNY CR001 also comes in red and blue and measures 15 x 54 x 53 mm for a total weight of 28 grams.

The downside of the device is that it lacks SDXC support and offers only USB 2.0 speed. The USB cable can be hidden in a special place when not in use – that comes handy.

In addition to the CR001 PNY also introduced the four-port hub UH001. Both devices will sell for around 10 USD.
