SanDisk releases world’s first 128GB microSD card
SanDisk, a global leader in flash storage, has released the world’s first microSD card with 128GB capacity in a form factor that’s smaller than a fingernail.

Now the latest SanDisk 128GB microSD card has enough room to store 16 hours of full high definition video, 7,500 songs, 3,200 photos and more than 120 apps on a single card.
The 128GB microSD card – the highest storage capacity in a removable form form factor – can be used with a variety of devices especially Android smartphones and tablets.
And not only can the card store more data, it can also offer high performance for high read/write speeds to record and playback high resolution images and full HD video.
The microSD format was introduced in 2004 with a 128MB capacity. The ability make that capacity 1000 times larger is the result of a proprietary technique by SanDisk.
