Kingston outs new high speed, high capacity microSD and SD memory cards
How much storage is enough storage? Trick question, because with megabytes, not unlike horsepower, you can never have enough. Thankfully, memory manufacturers like Kingston are familiar with that feeling and work tirelessly to fit more memory on less chips. The American corporation introduced new microSD and SD cards that happen to offer UHS-1 spec read/write speeds on top of their extended storage. In layman's terms, these cards are capable of 90MB/s read speeds and 45MB/s write speeds as long as the device they are in can handle such data transfer. 

As for memory capacity, the new microSD solutions go up to 128GB, while SD cards step in 256GB waters. Photographers will be having a field trip with these! Alas, Kingston hasn't published pricing and availability details yet, but the full technical details, along with the promise of lifetime warranty and support are available. Meanwhile Samsung, Toshiba, and other big timers are pushing super-fast NAND storage for next year's flagship mobile devices. Flying cars might be a little far ahead, but high-speed spacious memory is coming soon to everyone!
