    I was reading about Micro SD sizes and I was looking at Wikipedia and it stated that sizes 64mb to 12GB are available as of August 2008. If this is true I have yet to see a 12 gig on the market.

    I believe that the highest capacity Micro SDHC cards are available in are 32gb.

    I recall a flurry of stories saying that 12GB MicroSDHCs were supposed to hit last spring, but have yet to see any either.

    Thats for normal SD's (I think) Micro SD's are supposedly going to get up to 32GB but are currently at 8 and what I'm wondering about is 12

    12GB? I thought it's supposed to double every time?
    128MB->256MB->512MB->1GB->2GB->4GB->8GB->
    Theoretically it should have been 16GB, but I guess that much storage for a MicroSD is just impossible as of now.

    @JPH: That's all speculation. A regular SD can store 32GB, but a MicroSD certainly can not and probably won't for a couple of years.
