SanDisk Debuts Two 256 GB MicroSD Cards
SanDisk today announce two new high-capacity microSD memory cards for smartphones, tablets, and other devices. Both cards offer 256 GB of storage for photos, music, movies, and other content. The SanDisk Extreme microSDXC UHS-I card delivers transfer speeds of up to 100Mbps and write speeds up to 90Mbps for burst photo capture. SanDisk says the card can store up to 14 hours of 4K video. This card is meant more for professionals than consumers. SanDisk's Ultra microSDXC UHS-I card Premium Edition targets Android smartphones and tablets and is meant more for general capacity than raw speed. That said, transfer speeds reach as high as 95Mbps, which SanDisk claims is rapid enough to move up to 1,200 photos from a phone's built-in storage to the memory card in about one minute. The card can store up to 24 hours of full HD video. The Extreme microSDXC UHS-I will go on sale during the fourth quarter for $F200, while the Ultra microSDXC UHS-I will go on sale in August for $150.
