SanDisk unleashes world's first 128GB microSD card

It has enough room to store 75K photos

Almost 10 years after the microSD card format was introduced with 2GB of capacity, SanDisk has unveiled a new model of the popular removable storage card with more than 60 times that original storage capacity.

So, if you're in need of recording 24 hours of high-definition video on your Android smart phone, you're now in luck. In what it's calling the world's highest capacity microSD card, SanDisk today introduce its 128GB microSD card, the SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I Card.

The card has twice the capacity of the SanDisk's previous microSD model.

The card, which is just .59-in x .43-in x .03-in, is also available in 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, 64GB capacities. The microSD card has a maximum data write speed of 30MBps, according to SanDisk. Pricing will range from $29.99 to $199.99

The card is compatible with Android smartphones and tablets and microSDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) and microSDXC (Secure Digital eXtended Capacity) host devices.

The new microSD card is also compatible with SanDisk's cloud storage app, SanDisk Memory Zone, which is available on the Google Play store and allows Android smartphone users to view, access and back up files on the microSD card. You can also set the SanDisk Memory Zone app to backup to DropBox and other cloud storage services.

The app also allows users to off-load files from a mobile device's internal memory to the microSD card automatically to free up space.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
