Just in case you were getting used to thinking of 2GB worth of music on the Curve, you might be in for a bit of readjustment. Samsung’s got an 8 GB MicroSD card slated for mid-2008 release, by which time, maybe the 4 GB format will have a chance to catch on before it’s quickly ushered out.
Samsung’s card will be clocking in at a respectable 16MBps read speed and 6MBps write. The card is going to be running in a High Capacity (SDHC) format which isn’t backwards compatible, though. So while the Pearl is left in the dust, it is yet to be seen if these new cards will work with the Curve. The all-knowing Wikipedia has it that the Treo 680 works with SDHC cards despite official specs. It would be nice if future BlackBerrys managed to get some of the same compatibility before these 8GB cards are out. Still no word on price, but it’s a ways down the road.
