WP7 certified 8GB SD Cards at AT&T store

There's been much discussion surrounding the SD card slot on the Samsung Focus (we also previously covered AT&T offering compatible cards) with successfully inserting a microSD card into the slot to extend available memory bringing numerous reports of issues arising. There has been no sign of any official, supported, solution-bringing product on the horizon, until now.

It appears an AT&T store has been receiving a fresh stock of "certified" 8GB Class 4 microSDHC cards. Taking a look at the design of the packaging in the image captured above, it's clear to say Microsoft is taking a step to lead, especially with the Windows Phone logo at the top-right, and it seems SanDisk has been brought on-board to provide hardware. 

At $32 it's quite a major investment for an SD card, but it shouldn't through a tantrum when inserted into your device and we hope they'll soon be readily available for the mass of Focus owners to test. Excited or skeptical?
