I am glad to see USB 3.0 ports finally coming to market in more and more notebooks, desktops, and mainboards. The increase in the number of USB ports making it to the market means that we are seeing more and more USB 3.0 gadgets land as well.


Pretec has announced what it claims to be the world's first USB 3.0 memory card reader called the P240. The official name for the device is the P240 USB 3.0 High-Speed Multi-Card Reader. The card reader supports SDHC, SDXC, CF and other memory card formats.

The device has the full 5Gb/s USB 3.0 bandwidth for moving lots of data from high capacity memory cards to the computer. The card reader is set for sampling next month and will enter mass production in August.
