New Products: Sandisk Extreme Pro microSDHC, Wacom Bamboo Splash, Canon's Mixed Reality (also: 41mp PureView to US)

It is raining new gear, and the new gear is not just cameras and lenses. This is a mini-round-up of newly announced products!

*** The tiny little microSD cards have a new milestone today, Sandisk has announced a new line of Extreme Pro microSDHC UHS-I cards with a 95MB/sec reading and 90MB/sec writing spec-sheet speed
* the prices are both Extreme and Pro ;-) $60 for the 8GB version and $100 for the 16GB version. The current existing 32GB Sandisk Class 4 microSDHC goes for $20 at Amazon. Makes you wonder what type of memory is Apple putting in their iPads to justify a +$100 for +16GB :)
* Details via Twice, Engadget, et al

*** Wacom announces new entry-level graphics tablet, the Bamboo Splash, with a starting price of $79, and already it is available (in-stock and shipping) at B&H Photo which includes the description and product specs

*** Some photographers may think of the Canon camera line-up as a mixed reality, but it is actually the name of their Augmented reality products, and today they have announced an update to their platform with a new head mount display
* Details via Engadget, Akihabara, Electronista, EOS MR

*** European invasion! No, it's not Ace Of Base, it is the 41-megapixel Nokia PureView 808 cameraphone. It will be available shortly in the US market with an unlocked price of $700
+ now available for pre-order at Amazon by Amazon (US warranty) for $700
* Already some third-party sellers at Amazon are offering it at $750, feasting on the impatience of extreme early adopters
