sandisk memory cardsEarlier this week SanDisk announced the introduction of 16GB microSDHC (high capacity) cards, which makes me stare at the media-enabled BlackBerry Bold sitting beside me with both wonder and greed. However, those of you not fortunate enough to have an OS 4.6 BlackBerry may be wondering if your BlackBerry can support the new SDHC cards. Thankfully, our good friend Al Sacco over at CIO has already composed a useful chart depicting which BlackBerrys make the cut. We’ll spoil the ending for you, though: all BlackBerrys OS 4.5.0.81 and higher should be fine.

    The guy didn’t make that chart, he just extracted the text from the Blackberry KnowledgeBase article.

    It isn’t BlackBerrys but rather BlackBerry handhelds.

    Has anyone loaded one of these up yet?
    I have an 8GB in my Curve running 4.5 and loaded up about 6 GB of music a while back. Pretty much brought my BB to its knees. Scanning the folder took a couple of hours and anytime you tried to pull up the song list on the BB it was painfully slow.
