This is What a 32GB SD Card Would Look Like if Scaled To Size...pi

...per bit, from a 1GB SD card. We saw the 32GB SDHC monster at CES where they were announced, but Toshiba just announced their availability in Japan for $700. There's an 8GB microSD card, and a 16GB SD card, too. It's nice to realize that all our phones and computers could one day pack their memory footprint in something the size of a postage stamp.

I did a review of Lexar's 256MB (megabyte!) card in the late 90's and it sold for right around $700. Now of course you get cards that size in your box of cereal. Have you checked the price of all these media cards? Crazy cheap I tell ya! I'm betting 32GB cards will be under $100 in 18 months. One of the saddest things to do as a digital photographer is plop down serious money for storage cards and watch them get real cheap, real fast. "If only I waited a year!"
