Toshiba Announces a 16GB microSDHC Card

Toshiba 16GB SDHC CardToshiba announced today that it will soon have a 16GB microSDHC card on the market. The company also announced a new pair of high speed read/write 8GB and 16GB SDHC cards. The company says mass production of the new SDHC cards will begin in December, with production of the new microSDHC slated to start in January 2009. Pricing details have yet to be set.

All of the new SDHC memory cards comply with the SD memory standard Ver. 2.00, and the two new SDHC cards announced today support class 6 ultra fast read/write speed - a maximum write speed of 20MB per second, delivering high performance for continuous shooting of still images and recording video images. The new microSDHC can be used with an adapter that allows it to be used in SDHC slots.

This is especially encouraging news as it means we can once again count on our friends at Palm Palm to bravely stand strong against the forward march of progress by refusing to tweak Garnet so that it doesn't freak at storage volumes larger than 4GB.

Maybe Palm's Borat-wannabe hipster Claus spokescreature (he? she? it?) can put in a well-timed announcement on the Palm Blog with how the flexibility of 4 separate 4GB microSDHC cards is vastly preferable to one single 16gig card.

Maybe this will help push down the existing 16 GB cards.

They're still running $70+. I've long since learned never to spend more than $40 on a memory card no matter how much I drool over the capacity.

Since the 8GB class 4's (including various readers) are running about $20 shipped, that's the price point I'm aiming at from now on.

My first SD card (actually I believe it was an MMC) was 64MB, cost $125, and I thought I got the deal of a lifetime. At least it felt like that when my Handera accepted it with a smile.


Now if Palm would only finally wake up realize it's 2009 and that people actually *DO* want storage in their smartphones. The tiny internal RAM, the 4GB external limit on everchanging flash formats is NOT helping them. THAT'S the stuff to change, not the paint colors on their loss leading Centro toys.


Paying my annual PDA update tax to Palm since 1997.
