If you follow me on Twitter, about a month ago I tweeted about a 16GB microSDHC card by SanDisk. The card just hit the market in the UK and at the time was available for around $80 shipped to the U.S. I decided to buy one of these cards since I pre-ordered the T-Mobile G1 and it only comes with a measly 1GB microSD card, but supports microSDHC. My order was shipped (dispatched if you're in the U.K.) quickly and arrived with plenty of time to spare for the G1, so I snapped a few photos.
For those of you unfamiliar with SDHC, it's a flash memory card format that supports capacities of 4GB and beyond. Chances are you're most likely using an SD (under 4GB) or SDHC (over 4GB) card in your digital camera. microSD—used mostly for cell phones—is a teeny-tiny version of SD memory. So a microSDHC card is basically a mini SDHC card that supports high capacity memory. Not to make matters any more confusing, but you can use an adapter and plug a microSDHC card into an SDHC fitting to create an SDHC card and there are USB adapters that allow you to plug an SDHC card into them, creating what equates to a flash memory stick. The last photo in the set will help differentiate between the types and gives you a size comparison so you have a better idea of what's what. Now that I've got my memory, I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that UPS gets my G1 to me in one piece.
