I've looked all over town and on the internet to find the 1 GB XD memory card. Anyone know of a vendor who sells them? The fuji website states that they are available.

I have also only seen the 512mb cards but this is coming directly from the fujifilm website."Fujifilm's xD-Picture cards are currently available in storage capacities from 16MB to 1GB."

Olympus (Japan) just announced their 1GB xD card model M-XD1GM. This card uses Multi Level Cell (MLC) to achieve that capacity. This and future cards up to 8GB using MLC technology will be called Type M. Write speed is 2.5 MB/s and the read speed is 4 MB/s.

Availability will be the later half of March with street price of around 20,000 jpy, or about $200 usd.
