    That is a standard SD card, not a micro.

    That's a nice size, but anything larger than 8gb is too slow from what I understand.

    I thought it was the class of the card that determined it's speed, not it's size.

    Here's info from Wikipedia: Secure Digital - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Speed Class Rating
    The Speed Class Rating is the official unit of speed measurement for SD Cards, defined by the SD Association. It is equal to 8 MBit/s, and it measures the minimum write speeds based on "the best fragmented state where no memory unit is occupied":[8]

    The following are the ratings of some currently available cards:
    Class 2: 16 MBit/s (2 MByte/s)
    Class 4: 32 MBit/s (4 MByte/s)
    Class 6: 48 MBit/s (6 MByte/s)

    I'm afraid I'm having trouble deciphering the techno-lingo here. What class number would be fastest? Is there a large difference in price between classes?

    As you go up in class # the read/write speeds increase meaning more data is transferred. I read somewhere that smartphone doesn't really benefit beyond class 2. Class 4 and higher are generally reserved for Video. Someone else might be able to comment on this as well.

    classes above 2 are for video recorders and the higher end are for the HD ones...

    Nice! But I'll be waiting for a price drop for sure! I bought my 16GB from a company on Amazon for $40. I'd rather carry two 16GB than pay $200 for a 32GB.

    Anyway, 16Gb has been really good to me. plenty of music, four movies, and lots o' downloads and I'm still fine ;)

    yeah, you're right. class 6 is the fastest.
    anything class 6 larger than 8bg is slower, though.

    Yeah I'm gonna hold out for a price drop. $200 is crazy. Anyone have any idea if the Nexus will be compatible with a 64gb card when they eventually come out?

    the specs for the phone say "up to 32gb".

    so, unless they release a software update that allows the device to hold more memory, then i doubt it can.

    Ive seen absolutely no difference in speed between 2gb,8gb and 16gb... to say that anything over 8gb is to slow is just plain silly!

    You have to remember that is the suggested list price from Sandisk and usually the prices from newegg and other popular tech vendors will have it at a lower price than that. I bet it'll be around $170-185 on newegg when they put it on their site. It's still expensive regardless. heh

    Kingston offers a 16GB microSD that is a Class 10.

    A 32gb class 2 would be painful. Especially when the fat table loads or for video. You can get a class 6 transend for around 75 or a class 10 kingston for 99 from newegg.

    True, but that's likely because they've only tested that high because that's all that was available.

    I'm guessing one of the following:

    1. It would work, it just hasn't been proven.
    2. Once cards >32GB are available they'll send out an update.

    Whatever I can do to pay for more phones

    I put my order in on SanDisk's website but unfortunately they are already backordered. Hopefully they get new stock in soon so I can test this thing out.
