SanDisk recently announced the availability of a 64GB microSDXC card. This new memory card features transfer speeds of up to 30Mbps and offers Class 6 performance, which aids HD video read/write speeds. The card is the same size and shape as a microSD or microSDHC card and will fit in any microSD slot. However, only devices that have microSDXC support can make use of the 64GB card. Most of today's phones ship with support for 32GB cards. The card is shipping now directly from SanDisk.com for $219.99. SanDisk said the card won't be available from retailers for several months.

Is 64GB even necesary?

As far as a mobile phone device goes, isn't that just a tad bit.. overkill? for my own usage, an 8GB ipod is already too much because all i do is skip songs it feels like. Movies? forget about it on a phone. Somebody needs to work on improving battery performance first.
It is necessary, for several reasons.

You obviously know about the price difference between an 8 GB, 32GB and 64 GB iPod. Well guess what? Now you can buy any device that supports SDXC and pop that 64 gig card in there. No need to buy ipods anymor...

Increasing memory will not hurt battery life....

Support is questionable

So far I know only Android 3.1 or higher supports FAT64, so most of Android 2.2 or even 2.3 will have problem with it.
On computer side, however, as long as the OS supports FAT64 and SDHC, it will work for sure.
Isn't the FAT file system made by Microsoft?
