In the run-up to the release of the first iPhone, I was trying to decide which model to get; getting half the memory would mean $100 savings. And even in these times where Presidential candidates make casual $10,000 bets, 100 smackers is still a good chunk of money to the average Joe (or Doug). But Judie offered me a wise piece of advice: Get as much memory as you can, because you always end up needing more. And it ain’t just with iPhone, is it? Even in our cloud-connected days, you end up needing more memory. Which leads us right to Lexar, who has just released a High-Performance microSDHC(TM) UHS-I card with transfer speeds up to 600x (90MB per second). This card will capture and store up to 4 hours of HD video; 12,900 photos; or 7,400 songs. This card will come with an ultra-compact USB 3.0 reader “that lets users achieve the maximum performance of the 600x card during transfer of their photos and videos from the card to a PC or Mac(R) computer quickly and easily. The reader is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 ports.”
Tthe Lexar High-Performance microSDHC UHS-I card has MSRPs of $39.99 (16GB) and $69.99 (32GB), and these new cards will be available for purchase from Lexar.com and leading e-tail outlets worldwide.
