    I was looking around for high capacity SD cards and I found a few links.

    2GB $6
    4GB $9 / $13
    8GB $19 / $24
    16GB - $51 / $59

    Shouldn't be running out of storage on the G1 for a while.

    T-mobile G1 uses Micro SD cards.

    Like this one.

    This is what I like about the G1, expandable flash(unlimited space), unlike the iphone 3g.

    8GB - $39

    While I like expandable storage, I still think it needs an internal drive. Surely there will be a phone released with an SDD and a memory slot.

    Why don't you guys just buy from Newegg.com? Its the best place for all that kind of stuff. Also, make sure it is a Class 6 card. Class 4 are a bit slower in comparison.

    I was going to ask a question about that. I don't know much about the microSD cards, but saw everything from class 2 to class 8. Is there than noticeable of a difference?

    It depends on how fast the phone can access it. But considering its going to be a modern phone, i would just go and get the fastest and hope the phone can handle it. Besides, price difference is only a few bucks more for a higher class.

    I'm going to test the new 16gb one if is a true SDHC card reader then it should theoretically be able to read up to 32gb. I believe the 8gb limit is do to when the press release happened 8GB was the biggest available

    From what I hear yes and no...I'm not sure if its a hardware thing or if its simply because of availability. I hope its because of whats available...makes no sense for 8GB to be a physical limit.

    It wouldnt make sense to me if it was a hardware limit, maybe a limit of the OS.

    I got a 8GB card for $26 from meritline.com. Hang out on bensbargains.net or dealnews, usually you'll find one there.

    Newegg.com's service and speed can't be beat. Also when you are looking at classes, consider only a class 4 card is required for 1080P AVCHD video camcorders (20+Mbps)...

    This was mentioned higher up in the thread, but to answer a quick question on the "Class" numbers you see listed with the cards:

    The Class refers to the data transfer speed -- Class 4 = 4 Mbps, Class = 6 Mbps, etc.
    You'll also see numbers such as "40X" and such. 40X = Class 6.

    Get the highest class you can :)
