Samsung announced that it has developed an 8GB microSD (Secure Digital) memory card.
8GB marks the highest capacity for microSD cards at the moment. You could store 2,000 MP3 music files, 4,000 digital photos, or approximately 5 DVD-quality movies on this tiny high capacity storage card. With a read speed of 16 Megabytes (MBs) per second and a write speed of 6MB/s, Samsung’s 8GB microSD card well exceeds the Speed Class 4 SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) standard which requires a data write speed of 4MB/s. This is also much faster than the SD Speed Class 2 designation carried by most competing microSD cards currently on the market.
The market research firm Dataquest predicts that the memory card market as a whole will average 10 percent annual growth between 2006 and 2010, while demand for high density 8GB cards will grow an average of 2.6 times per year over the same period. By 2010, the 8GB memory card will be the market mainstream in terms of units sold.
