Here's the latest "interesting words" from Sandisk on XQD: http://ces.cnet.com/8301-33363_1-57358446/sandisk-on-new-xqd-memory-card-format-meh/


Maybe the 'latest' is stretching it a bit when linking an article from January.

In one way it's no surprise that Sandisk are holing back when there is only one product that uses the card, but then you would think they would make them because the card was partly their idea.

XQD will not take off until there are other devices, and top end devices particularly, to create more demand. If Canon think they can get the speeds they need in their high end products with SD or CF cards in the future, then Nikon may have made a mistake. If Sony's future SLT cameras can be improved with XQD cards (for the high frame rates they may be able to achieve), then Sony are in the perfect position to capitalize on their position, and in doing so help populise the standard and help Nikon users.
