The new crop of microSD cards are getting ridiculous storage capacities for something this small - step back 16GB microSD cards, the 32GB cards are coming to town. SanDisk just might be the first to release microSD cards of this capacity.

By the way, this is the Swan song of microSDHC - they are capped at 32GB capacity. Coming to replace them will be the microSDXC variety (XC stands for "extended capacity").

Getting back on topic, SanDisk will release the world's first 32GB microSD cards next month and their price is expected to be 200 US dollars (150 euro), which obviously includes he early adopter's fee and the bragging rights that come with it.

We're joking of course, but 16GB microSD cards from SanDisk can be had for as low as 40 bucks - buying a phone with a hot-swappable card slot sounds like a good idea, doesn't it?

But if you absolutely must have one, you'd need 200 dollars by next month when these cards start shipping.
