Today a new memory card format was introduced. SDXC, or SD eXtended Capacity, will be capable of fitting up to 2 terabytes of data onto a single card. The new technology also accelerates SD interface read/write speeds to 104 Mbps in 2009, with a road map to 300 Mbps set for the coming year. The SDXC specification uses Microsoft's exFAT file system to support its large capacity. A 2 terabyte SDXC memory card can store 100 HD movies, 60 hours of HD recording or 17,000 fine-grade photos. The first cards will be available later this year. Pricing for the cards was not revealed, nor have any handset manufacturers said they will support the new format.
Hard drives are already slowly replaced with SSD's (Solid State Drive). They're currently cap out at 512GB's, and are very, very expensive. But the benefits are of course no moving parts, and much faster.
This is almost mind boggling...a 2048 GB SD card!! No need for my external hard drive that I have all my pic and music backed up on. Now I want to know how much they want for one. It would have to be a least $300.
