Awesome. Now to just get 4.6 . . . .
SanDisk Corporation today announced it is bringing to market its 16GB microSDHC mobile memory cards - the world’s largest removable storage capacity for mobile phones. Best Buy Mobile and Verizon Wireless stores are the first major retail outlets in the United States to carry the 16GB capacity. The fingernail-sized 16GB memory cards allow consumers to “wake up” the many storage-intensive features offered by today’s portable handsets such as music and video playback, high-definition digital camera functions, gaming and GPS applications. In addition to the mobile phone, consumers can use the 16GB microSDHC card in a multitude of other devices, including video cameras, GPS receivers or MP3 players with a microSD slots such as SanDisk’s Sansa® players.
“Handsets have become far more than just phones - they’ve become mobile jukeboxes, mobile offices, even mobile movie theaters,” said Avi Greengart, Research Director for Mobile Devices at Current Analysis. “Flash memory cards have increased in storage capacity, but even an 8GB card may be too small for anyone with GPS map data, a few movies, a game or two, a presentation file and other applications. There is an acute need for more mobile storage capacity. 16GB gives consumers the ability to carry their digital content with them and still have room to do more with their mobile phones.”
Expected Pricing, Availability and Product Information
SanDisk’s 16GB microSDHC card has an MSRP of $99.99. The new 16GB capacity will be available at Best Buy Mobile stores in October and Verizon Wireless stores in November – the only major retailers in the United States to carry this mobile storage capacity in 2008.
MicroSD cards are designed for slot-equipped legacy mobile phones and can hold a maximum capacity of 2GB. Today’s microSDHC cards are available in 4GB, 8GB and now 16GB, are ideal for newer mobile phone models, most of which are compatible with these higher capacity cards. SanDisk’s 16GB mobile memory cards come with a five-year limited warranty.

Awesome!~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
That's so totally awesome!!! I can't believe they have finally gone that high in memory storage for our wonderful little devices
Well, i just got my 8gig'r. I cant do a thing with my curve and that 16gb card until 4.6 is rolled out. Knowing rim and sprint.. That prolly wont be until a year from now, for an official 8.6 release...
That would go just lovely with a BlackBerry Storm. So if Verizon starts selling these badboys in November then I could get both around the same time!!

Got an 8GB card yesterday for my 8310, only to find out today that the it doesn't support 8GB yet. Had to go back and "downsize" to a 2GB. Running 220.127.116.11 - anyone know of a timetable for 4.6 for AT&T?
Wow!! R U serious?? the 8310 with 4.5 doesnt support 8gb? My 8330 with 4.3 does.. Thats strange and sucks..
I will be getting one with my Bold, whenever that may be.
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I will be getting mine as soon as we have it here in South Africa. Well I'm with Vodafone but the problem is that vodafone has not yet officially realesed the O.S 4.5 yet I'm still stuck with my 4.2. Even if I get it will I be able to use the 16Gig card on O.S 4.2? Please Vodafone come on now
