(Pun). CES 2002: Lexar has today announced a new Portable USB card reader for MMC/SD cards. Not to be outdone by SanDisk and just a day after they announced their Cruze product the new Lexar portable USB MMC/SD card reader is also a 'Mass Storage Class' device (which means it will work with most modern operating systems without a driver). The reader alone will cost $29.99. It's worth noting that unlike the SanDisk unit (which is self contained) the Lexar reader does have a cable.
Lexar Media Introduces Portable USB Reader for MultiMediaCards(tm) and SecureDigital(tm) Cards
CES, Las Vegas, NV, January 8, 2002 - Lexar Media, Inc.

The MMC/SD Reader offers portability and connection to PC or Macintosh through a USB port. The reader is mass storage compliant, boasting true plug-and-play operability since no drivers are required for use with the latest operating systems.
