Android users that are in need of adding masses of extra storage capacity to their smartphone or Android tablet are sure to be interested in a new microSD card that has been unveiled by SanDisk this week that provides a huge 200GB of extra storage.
The new 200GB microSD card is nearly double the size of the previous largest card that SanDisk has created ,which was in the form of the 128GB.
The new SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I Premium Edition 200GB microSD card provides users with transfer speeds of 90MB/sec meaning that it would take you at least 35 minutes to completely fill the 200 GB capacity. Unfortunately the 200GB microSD card is only compatible with Android smartphones and tablets. Christopher Chute, Vice President, Worldwide Digital Imaging Practice, IDC explains a little more :
“Mobile devices are completely changing the game. Seven out of 10 images captured by consumers are now from smartphones and tablets. Consumers view mobile-first devices as their primary means for image capture and sharing, and by 2019 smartphones and tablets will account for nine out of 10 images captured,”-“As the needs of mobile users continue to change, SanDisk is on the forefront of delivering solutions for these demands as is clearly illustrated through their growing portfolio of innovative products, including the new 200GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC card.”
But be warned the new 200GB storage card from SanDisk doesn’t come cheap and is priced at four times the cost of the current 128 GB card and will be priced at $400 when it launches in the coming months.Filed Under: Android News, Hardware, Tablet News, Top News
