As we move through technology, storage capacity has just about become a major concern when purchasing a new device. With HD content becoming more readily available, music services offering direct to device downloads and camera reaching 8MP or higher -- we need places to store allt his content and sometimes the built in storage just simply isn't enough. SanDisk knows this and now they've announced a new 64GB microSDXC card designed for mobile devices.
Mobile phone sales are expected to reach 1.7 billion in 2014, and the majority of these handsets will include microSDXC card slots, according to Strategy Analytics, Slotted Phone Shipments Forecast, 12/10. Mobile phones allow consumers to create and enjoy an increasing amount of digital content, ranging from user-generated Full HD videos to full-length feature films and videogames. High-capacity mobile memory cards provide the storage expansion consumers need to keep up with the explosion of digital content.
Sounds great right? Lot's of storage space to save anything you do so wish and always have it available to you on your smartphone or tablet. Plus, you can get up to 30MB/sec4 transfer speeds with Class 6 performance needed to capture Full HD videos.
But not so fast -- the cards require that you have a microSDXC card slot available but most tablets and smartphones on the market these days simply are not equipped with those. Current standards call for microSD which only supports up to 32GB and sadly, the microSDXC cards are not backwards compatible. But again, the technology age is ever growing so now thanks to SanDisk when microSDXC card slots become the norm, at least there are options available -- that is, if you are willing to fork over the $200 it would cost to pick one of these up.
