For those of us who shoot a lot of video or just can’t bear to ever delete a thing, 200 gigabytes of storage on a microSD card sounds pretty awesome. SanDisk says that awesomeness is about to become reality.
The world’s first 200GB microSD card features 56 percent more storage than the 128GB card, the previous record-holder, and can transfer up to 1,200 photos in a minute at up to 90 megabytes per second, and hold up to 20 hours of full HD (1080p) resolution video. It’s also water, temperature, shock, magnet and X-ray proof. All this storage space does come with one drawback: namely, its $400 price tag. Also, in case you haven’t checked your iPhone lately, there’s no expandable storage there, so SanDisk’s card is designed for “premium Android-based smartphones and tablets.”
