One of the most common forms of storage for many consumer electronics devices like cameras and camcorders is the SD card. The association that promotes the SD standard is called the SD Card Association. Today it announced a new Embedded SD standard for internal memory that will launch in November.

The specification promises double the device storage capacity and easier platform design. Embedded SD will separate flash management from the host and provide the ability to add up to 32GB of onboard memory along with up to 32GB of removable memory with an external SD card.

"The miniSD and microSD form factors are the leading interfaces for removable storage cards for mobile handsets, currently dominating the market, and are expected to constitute 90 percent of all card slots in mobile handsets in 2010, according to our analysis," said Nam Hyung Kim, director and chief analyst for iSuppli Corp. "The new Embedded SD standard is built on that leading SD standard and takes aim at mobile handset storage needs like low power consumption, boot functionality, small form factor and integrated flash management."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
