    PNY Technologies announces a wide range of special offers on memory solutions through as well as major retailers and online e-tailers nationwide:

-- Digital Picture Frames - Digital picture frames make a great solution for sharing and displaying your favorite holiday, vacation, family or other photos. However, most frames have little or no internal memory, so you can only view your pictures from an SD memory card (or other compatible media), otherwise you're stuck staring at a blank screen. With an extra PNY 2GB* SD Memory Card, you can keep one in your camera to take more great photos and leave one in the frame so your favorites are always there for your viewing pleasure. Special price: $17.99 . Need the perfect accompaniment to your new frame? The National Geographic Picture Card offers 20 images of far away destinations that can be instantly displayed on your new digital picture frame. Special price: $14.99

-- Cell or Smart Phone - Today's cell phones are more advanced than ever, and now let you capture, store and play pictures, video, music, games, and more. By adding a MicroSD(TM) memory card, you can store more information, and with the proper adapters can use that same storage card in other SD-compatible devices, or even on your USB-port equipped PC. The PNY 2GB, 4-In-1 Mobile Media Kit is an excellent upgrade option that allows you to capture and transport your favorite content on multiple devices using the same memory card. With the kit, you can choose a single memory device to work with virtually all digital cameras, mobile phones, PDAs, MP3 players, laptops, smart phones or any device that supports an SD card or USB drive. The 4-In-1 Mobile Media Kit contains a MicroSD(TM) card and three adapters, converting the MicroSD(TM) to a MiniSD(TM) card, standard SD card, or a USB drive. Special price: $29.99

-- Point & Shoot Digital Camera - Even many of today's basic digital cameras shoot high-resolution photos at 10 mega pixels and beyond, and also can take video at up to 30 frames per second. The result is great-looking images and videos you can treasure for years to come. These picture and movie files can get quite large, however, and quickly fill-up older, lower-density memory cards. The PNY 4GB Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC)** Memory Card provides photo enthusiasts and other mobile device users the speed and capacity needed to capture the high volume of files to store and share. Special price: $34.99

-- Laptop Computer - While laptop PCs have become more affordable than ever, entry level models often have small storage capacities or slow performance. Add some memory, such as the PNY Optima (TM) 2GB 5300 DDR2 for notebooks (Special price: $49.99) and a new USB Flash Drive to complement your new laptop. Flash drives are portable, reusable storage devices make a great solution to transport and share digital pictures, music, documents, and more. The PNY 4GB Optima Pro(TM) Attache (R) USB Flash Drive provides the ultimate mobile storage solution for anyone on the go--it can be carried in a pocket, a backpack or briefcase. To access files, simply plug Attache into virtually any PC or MAC--without the need for bulky cables or adapters. The drive performs in a variety of climates, weather conditions and temperature extremes. Plus, these drives are enhanced for Windows(R) ReadyBoost(TM) to boost system performance when running Windows Vista. Special price: $34.99

-- Desktop Computer - If your old PC is due for a tune-up, or perhaps your new PC does not have the capacity to take advantage of the latest features in Windows Vista Home Premium, a simple memory upgrade can improve overall system performance. If you would like to have a better overall visual experience, view and edit photos, appreciate the features of Vista Aero, or perhaps play the latest DirectX 10 games, consider upgrading your graphics card. PNY solutions include the Optima (TM) 2GB 5300 DDR2 Desktop Memory (Special price: $54.99) and the 8500GT 512MB PCIe Graphics Card (Special price: $99.99).

-- Digital SLR Camera - Digital SLR cameras are now available to aspiring and professional photographers alike. However, with their often higher resolutions and ability to shoot multiple frames per second, these cameras put higher demands on the memory cards that store your photos. The PNY 4GB Optima Pro(TM) 133X CompactFlash Memory Card is a high-performance, flash memory card that improves click-to-click speed and write time, so you never miss out on the action. Special price: $79.99.
