    What's the most amount of memory you can get on a MicroSD(HC) card? I'm not necessarily gonna buy one but I'm just curious incase I'm ever interested in buying one that has a TON of memory [​IMG]

    Standard SD: 8 MB to 4 GB
    SDHC: 4 GB to 32 GB (theoretical max for SDHC is 2 TB.)

    As of now, the largest size for a commercial MicroSD is 8GB.
    There are prototypes for 16GB MicroSDs, I remember someone here said their dad brought one from work.
    I don't think 32GB exists yet.

    Standard microSDs technically only go up to 2GB, 4GB microSDs which aren't SDHC are outside of the spec and may not perform correctly on some devices.

    I know the 8GB exists and you can buy it but I haven't even seen a picture of a 16GB yet or 32GB for that matter.

    I saw a 12 GB before, but I think it's out in like a year.

    note 1) picture doesnt actually show a 16gb card just a micro sd with no writing ie its stock art that anyone can use!

    note 2) if you go to order they are out of stock .. reason thats because they dont exist commercially yet!

    expect around december time for release of 16gb cards [​IMG]

    It is but it's not relevant for the market, by cooling a Core 2 Duo with liquid nitrogen you can get some impressive speed but thats not really relevant to the regular buyer. [​IMG]
