Sony has finished the specifications of a memory stick that will have a maximum storage capacity of 2TB.

Existing1TB devices can hold 350,000 MP3 songs at 2.85MB per song, up to 1 million photos (1MB per 2.4 mega pixel JPEG photo) or 76 hours of uncompressed digital video (13GB/hour data rate).

According to, Sony has finalised specifications of what is known as Memory Stick XC.

"A new page on Sony's website has listed all of the details for the Memory Stick XC, which is really exciting, especially considering that the form factor for these new flash cards are (on paper) the same as pre-existing memory sticks, which means that these high capacity juggernauts are most likely backwards compatible," said
