SanDisk starts to sell its very first 64GB microSDXC cards - priced at $220 a pop

Needless to say, some people are probably more than content with 32GB microSD cards, especially when they seem sufficient enough to handle the needs of the most demanding users out there. However, if that’s simply not enough to satisfy your voracious appetite, then you might want to consider checking out SanDisk’s recently launched 64GB microSDXC card. Basically, this card is one blazing piece of technology as it features transfer speed of up to 30Mbps – and provides Class 6 performance.
Obviously, this news will bring joy to some people out there, but sadly, today’s cell phones won’t be able to accommodate it just yet. At best, they’re compatible with microSD cards up to 32GB in size. Still, you know this is something that’ll surely find its place among mobile devices down the line.
If you’re interested, the only place where you can nab one is through SanDisk’s web site for a whopping $219.99, which is the same cost as some of today’s high-end smartphones.

Bit lost on the transfer speed... Class | Speed Class 2 | 2 MB/s Class 4 | 4 MB/s Class 6 | 6 MB/s Class 10| 10 MB/s Class is what tells the user the transfer speed so im just confused on a class 6 doing 30mb/s

I have a class 4 micro SD card with 4GB and it has more data transfer than 4 MB/s, I think it actually is 13.3MB/s on mine.

32GBs is enough for me on my cell phone, I hardly even have half of the space filled.

Every electronic file I have ever created or collected in my entire life thus far fits inside of 4GB... at this rate, I will not need a 64GB microSDXC card until I am... well, long dead. Maybe they'll be a lot cheaper by then!

please tell me where i can find a high end phone for $219.99, because most of them are $219.99 + 24 x plan's monthly fee this is why people think buying contract phones is cheap but actually they are quite expensive
