New 12GB microSDHC is 50% Storage Boost

12gb microsdhc sandisk cardSanDisk announced today a massive 12GB microSDHC card which is 50% larger in storage capacity than it’s previous model (8GB). So what does this mean?  It means our mobile devices are getting one step closer to becoming a storage medium for all sorts of data, phone related or not.  From MP3 files, video and data files … with 12GB of flash memory, quit a lot can fit.  To put things into perspective, the microSDHC can hold [about] 1,500 MP3 songs, 3,600 photos and 24.5 hours of video. If you haven’t used or seen a microSDHC card, make sure you stop off at your local computer store and take a look.  The size is incredibly small.  About the size of your pinky fingernail. Some background info:  The SDHC format applies to SD flash memory which is larger than 2GB is storage space.  The new 12GB microSDHC card conforms to the SD 2.00 specification and has the theoretical maximum storage capacity of 32GB. On a closing note, the new SanDisk microSDHC card has a transfer speed compatible with the Class 4 specification.  Too geeky for ya – let me sum it up: SDHC cards have SD Speed Class Ratings defined by the SD Association. The SD Speed Class Ratings specify the following minimum sustained write speed on to empty SDHC cards:
  • Class 2: 2 MB/s
  • Class 4: 4 MB/s
  • Class 6: 6 MB/s
