SanDisk 200GB microSD card now available to buy

SanDisk 200GB

SanDisk's improbably capacious 200GB microSD card is now available to buy – and it doesn't come cheap.

The storage specialist unveiled its staggering 200GB microSD card at MWC in Barcelona back in March. It represented a huge leap over the existing maximum capacity of 128GB.

You can now buy the tiny physics-defying storage card from Amazon right now. The cost is a cool £210.

For that money you obviously get a 1GB per pound conversion rate, as well as a swift 90 MB/s data transfer rate. That should be good for transferring 1200 photos per minute.

So what's 200GB in real terms? SanDisk puts it this way you could store 480 music albums and 3600 photos on the card, and still have room for 16 hours of Full HD video.

As a member of the SanDisk Ultra microSDXC range, the new card is waterproof, shockproof and temperature, X-ray and magnet-proof. It comes with a 10 year guarantee.

Oh, and you get an SD card adaptor with it, as always. You'd kind of expect that for £210, wouldn't you?

Of course, SanDisk's thunder was somewhat stolen at the very same MWC show when Microdia announced a 512GB microSD card. However, that particular card won't be available until July, and it will presumably come with a prohibitively high price tag. Even more so than £200, we mean.

So surely it wont be long before phones with built in 200-512GB will start coming out?

Aside from the horrible pricing that Apple will undoubtedly put on their iPhones, this can only be a good thing for consumers with higher resolution/larger apps and videos coming out as im still not completely sold on the idea of cloud replacing local storage

I'm always confused by the performance of MicroSD cards. Clearly they're not as fast as having an SSD. But are they as fast as say a USB3.0 ram stick?
