Samsung launching 64GB UHS-1 microSD in October

Samsung launching 64GB UHS-1 microSD in October
You might not have noticed, but most recent high-end smartphones with expandable memory now support not just 32GB, but 64GB microSD cards. And now Samsung said it’s bringing a 64GB ultra-high speed (UHS-1) microSD card this October.

The ultra-high speed 1 (UHS-1) standard means that the memory card supports read speeds of 104MB per second. With speeds like these, we can see how the smartphones and tablets of the ideal and not so distant future could finally come without all those different memory versions.

Why the future? Well, when Samsung’s 64GB UHS-1 microSD cards hit stores’ shelves in October don’t expect them to cost tens, but rather hundreds of dollars.

good luck selling them for hundreds. You can get the same from Sandisk already. And prices are below 50 pounds on Amazon.

64 gig is cool. The real question is that are there any devices that support more than 32 gig?

Exfat, which means it needs reformatting to fat32 to work in other devices. Thats sick though that Samsung made their phones compatible with the format. Now if they would just dump that garbage MHL for microHDMI I'd actually buy a phone from them.

Motorola told me that Android OS as of now doesn't support 64gb cards. Looked at a Sandisk back in October when I got my Photon. Not saying it won't support it in the future, maybe ICS but my gingerbread doesn't.

The 64 GB Sandisk SDXC card works with my Galaxy S2. When I first inserted the card it gave me an error. I had to format the card from within the phone (from exfat to fat32). But it detects the memory and works fine. I am running ICS.
