    I know it comes with a 16g micro SD card, however does it come with a class 6 or a class 2 16g micro SD card ?

    Thanks
    Mitchell

    I'm gonna guess it will be Class 2 just like the original Droid had.

    Class 2. Better for profit margin and 99% of buyers will never know the difference between class 2 and class 6 so its not worth Motorola to cut into profits by using class 6. Econ 101.

    Does it really make that big of a difference? I mean what exactly is going to be the difference between say a class 6 and a class 2? I mean i know faster write speeds but other than that what are the benefits of class 6 vs class 2?

    You answered your own question. The difference is speed. What's the difference between a 500 mhz and 1 ghz processor? Speed. It's up to you if that makes "that big of a difference." Some people want the fastest speeds possible; others are more willing to wait.

    Except for the fact as he pointed out it is write speed not read speed. So the differnence is only really when files are being transfered to it not read from it.

    To be honest its write speed not read speed so i guess if u are always in a hurry for something then a class 6 would be better. U cant really compare processors since they make how fast something actually runs

    I've checked the Droid X Launch package and the picture in it of the memory card definitely shows Class 2.

    True true. I'll admit my comparison clearly wasn't fair as the processor speed is far more important than the write speed of your sd card. :D For most, the difference in write speed isn't all that important, but some just feel the need for speed in everything they do.

    I know what you mean. it is the same as always wanting the newest thing that comes out even if it is only a very minor step up from what you already have

    Don't cards also play a role in caching? or whenever its used that is.

    Quck question regarding this micro sd card. Will it come with anything preloaded? Or will it be blank? Quick question is I already have a 16gb class 6 that I want to switch out with.

    Thanks for all the input. to answer some ones questions above yes it is only for write speed however when you are taking video or pictures it makes a difference. other wise yes on paper it will make a difference but in real life you would never know a class 2 from a 6.

    Thanks again
    Mitchell

    Patiently waiting for an X!

    The usually do, but as stated in a few reviews, the X will use the internal storage for apps, and application data (ie caching) the memory card will be used solely for media
