There's a 512GB microSD card coming in July, but you likely can't afford it
Even as internal storage on smartphones keeps increasing, the amount of space on microSD cards also continues to grow. This week, the California-based company Microdia announced plans to launch a microSD card with a new storage milestone: 512GB.
The Microdia Xtra Elite was announced during Computex 2015, but, as CNET reports, the company didn't have any working versions of the card available for attendees or the press to check out; only its packaging. It adds:
The card will go on sale sometime in July, with Microdia claiming that the price tag will be somewhere around $1,000, although an exact retail price has yet to be decided. What would you do with a microSD card inside your smartphone with all of that storage space?

Consider phone storage to be an SSD, and micro SD storage to be like a mechanical hard drive. Store data accordingly :)
Some of us don't have have internet access so the ability to have all your media in your pocket is great
Still a v.usable speed - but things like apps should be installed to the internal storage if possible.
Better I buy a phone and then buy a 64GB card instead of this card.
But technology sure is advancing.
You might want to not include Maggi in your diet anymore ;)

John, you buttwipe, don't call me poor
Just buy an SDXC card then. They're cheap as chips. I got a Samsung UHS-1 from 7DayShop in the UK for £13 the other week. It's working flawlessly.
The world doesn't need more materialistic people seeking purpose in possessions. You only have to look at the state of the environment (and the shit washing up on distant atolls) to see that needless consumption is a poison.
I pity those that flash their cash as if it is something the rest should envy.
Technology is really Growing Brilliant..
I still remember using 512Mb memory card in 6600 & Nokia Engage .. But 1000$ [ Around 60,000 ₹ ] is too much..
Can buy a I phone / Pc with that money..
What a wo r ld!
My PC HDD is 320gb and u guys r making a sd card of 512gb.
But I like to see that kind of evolution! :D
Maybe the better thing to say is you wouldn't want to buy it.
Do you see how that words makes a difference to the meaning?!
"I'm rich, biatch!"
Dunno if he can still "afford" to say that, tho
However, as we so often see - as long as your phone supports the tech (in this case, SDXC), you likely will be able to use bigger cards than those listed by the phone manufacturer.
