Flaw in Android causes it to not format 32GB microSD cards
Flying under the radar for the most part, there is an apparent flaw with Android that wasn't picked up by many users. One user who owned a Google Nexus One had a problem trying to format a 32GB microSD card so he could use it with his phone. Unfortunately Android doesn't like to play nice with cards at that capacity and is unable to format the higher-capacity memory card which are listed as being compatible with a handful of devices running the platform. Google didn't beat around the bush and clearly confirmed that it was a problem. With the expensive cost of purchasing a 32GB microSD card, there are probably plenty of owners who resort to something much smaller – so the problem probably didn't affect a large amount of users. Luckily though, Google has already corrected the flaw that affects all Android phones and will shortly release the update for it. A Google representative said, “This issue has been fixed, and will be part of our next over-the-air update. We don't have a specific timeframe to share at this time.”
