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.
