Here’s an interesting step taken by the Japan Unit of Walt Disney Co., as it plans to sell its movies on a new medium – flash memory cards. The sizes of memory cards varies, but Disney has selected the microSD memory card size as the choice to go with for this venture. It initially plans to bundle these memory cards with pre-recorded content along with DVDs of the same movies.
MicroSD was selected because it is the most common type of mobile phone storage; so with this new package, you can watch the movie at home or on your mobile phone when on the move.
The microSD cards are going to be provided by Panasonic, while the price of the pack is set to be approximately Rs. 2,500.
This new medium seems certainly more practical than streaming movies on the go.
Walt Disney Studios plans to launch this new service in November, and the first movie titles are going to be the Pirates of the Caribbean series and the National Treasure series.
