LAS VEGAS -- January 6, 2014

SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ:SNDK), a global leader in flash storage solutions,
today announced the 64GB^1 SanDisk Connect™ Wireless Flash Drive in advance of
the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show. The drive extends SanDisk’s popular and
award-winning line of wireless flash memory storage products, offering users
even more wireless memory expansion for their mobile devices. In addition,

The SanDisk Connect line of products is designed to alleviate storage capacity
limitations that consumers experience with their mobile devices. Data from the
SanDisk Memory Zone memory management app for Android™ devices, which recently
surpassed 1.5 million downloads, indicates 44 percent of users have less than
half of their mobile device’s internal storage capacity free, and nearly one
quarter of users are at more than 80 percent utilization^2. The data also
shows that when memory utilization reaches 80 to 90 percent, users proactively
make space available by deleting or removing content.

“We are addressing a common problem of consumers running out of memory on
mobile devices, and are extending our Connect product line with a 64GB
Wireless Flash Drive for access to even more videos, photos, music, and
documents on-the-go,” said Dinesh Bahal, vice president, product marketing,
SanDisk. “With the SanDisk Connect products, consumers can expand the memory
on their phones and tablets, stream movies, and share photos and documents
with colleagues, friends and family with ease and style.”

The SanDisk Connect product line enables consumers to wirelessly stream^3 and
store content on-the-go without Internet access. In addition to the release of
the 64GB SanDisk Connect Wireless Flash Drive, SanDisk has been continuously
updating the software to improve performance and accessibility of the drive
while keeping a cellular data connection^4. For the Wireless Media Drive,
updates also include a web app that enables wireless access from PCs and Mac
computers, as well as Windows^® 8 based tablets, and the ability to play back
movies purchased on iTunes.

Pricing and Availability

The 64GB SanDisk Connect Wireless Flash Drive is available at an MSRP of
$99.99 in the U.S. on www.sandisk.com, Amazon.com and B&H. It will also be
available in select countries in Europe in the coming weeks.
