Samsung Offers 8MB MicroSD Card for Mobiles

Samsung Electronics has developed an 8 GB microSD (Secure Digital) memory card designed for multimedia mobile phones. The new fingernail-sized card is capable of storing 2,000 MP3 music files, 4,000 digital photos, or approximately five DVD-quality movies.

Samsung said its new 8GB microSD card has a read speed of 16 Megabytes (MBs) per second and a write speed of 6 MB/s, well exceeding the Speed Class 4 SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) standard which requires a data write speed of 4MB/s. This is also much faster than the SD Speed Class 2 designation carried by most competing microSD cards currently on the market.
