Toshiba 16GB microSDHC

Toshiba started its Wednesday with news of a much higher-capacity 16GB microSDHC card as well as faster full-size SDHC cards. The former doubles Toshiba's previous best and gives cellphones and some newer still cameras a large amount of storage for music and photos. The card is relatively slow with a minimum Class 2 (2MB per second) transfer speed in exchange for the capacity. Toshiba starts mass-producing the cards in January and should deliver them shortly afterwards.

The SDHC storage comes in 8GB and 16GB models and significantly boosts the minimum speed to Class 6, or 6MB per second in reads and writes. The company also anticipates speeds peaking at 20MB per second and says the speed is enough to maintain continuous shooting on most still cameras as well as for most video capturing.

Mass production dates for the larger cards will vary widely. The 8GB card arrives soon and will be built from December onwards; the 16GB SDHC card, however, isn't scheduled to reach factories until April. Pricing for these and the microSDHC cards hasn't been made public.

    I didn't realize SD cards had sexual preferences.
