Smartphone card stores 2,000 songs

Samsung develops 8GB microSD card

Samsung Electronics has developed an 8GB micro memory card for smartphones.

The microSD (Secure Digital) card boasts the highest capacity for a microSD card, Samsung said. The card is capable of storing 2,000 MP3 music files, 4,000 digital photos or about five DVD-quality movies. The card has a read/write speed of 16MB/sec. and 6MB/sec, respectively.

The microSD card, about a quarter the size of a standard SD card used in cameras, is backward compatible with SD cards using an extender to allow multimedia files downloaded by mobile phones to be displayed on other media.
