More CTIA news: SanDisk has announced that it’s shipping the world’s highest capacity MicroSDHC card. It’s a 32GB model, big enough to let any phone with an SDHC slot match the memory of the highest-capacity iPhone 3GS. As usual for a new high-end memory card, it’s pricey in terms of the cost per gigabyte: SanDisk is offering it for $199.99, but the company will also sell you four 8GB MicroSD cards for a total of $120. If history is any indication–and it is–the 32GB cards will get cheaper, especially once 64GB models (which require slots compatible with the newer MicroSDXC standard) arrive and claim the maximum-capacity bragging rights.
