    The Pearl supports up to a 2gb card.

    Any cared larger than this is considered SD High Capacity and is not supported.
    As always, just my opinion...

    The 8100 Pearl supports microSD which maxes out at 2 gig.

    The 8800, the 8830 and the 8300 are hybrid phones and support both the SD format which maxes out at 2 gig and the SDHC format which starts at 4 gig and ends at 32 gig, currently the only micro SDHC cards available are 4 gig ones.

    The speed of SDHC cards is measured differently than SD too. Without getting into details, you want a SC6 (speedclass) card.

    Is there an adapter or something that will enable you to use the sdhc on pearl, or maybe is it in the realm of possibility that rim may have an OS update that allows usage of such hardware?

    SD cards are 16 bit; SDHC are 32 bit. The two are not compatible with each other unless the device supports both types. The Pearl only supports the 16 bit SD type.

    Perhaps the 2nd version of the pearl will suppoert it when it comes out.

    Re: largest memory card

    the size of the card allowance also depends on your version OS...i know some people are still on .42 and that one only supported 1gb - just in case

    That makes sense, seeing as 4.2.1.101 just came out recently and many stackers are reporting the capability of using 4gb cards.
