Samsung 8GB MicroSD Memory Card

Samsung says it has developed an 8GB microSD card, today’s highest capacity for the card format which is best suited for multimedia mobile phones.

With 8GB, the fingernail-sized card can store 2,000 MP3 music files, 4,000 digital photos, or 5 DVD-quality movies.

Samsung’s new microSD card has a read speed of 16MBps and a write speed of 6MBps, well exceeding the Speed Class 4 SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) standard which requires a data write speed of 4MB/s.
