Sandisk just announced the world's first 64GB microSDXC card, which is designed for use in smartphones. The manufacturer doubled the maximum extra storage that you can add to your smartphone or tablet.

If you were getting worryingly close to the storage limit of your smartphone or tablet, you may breathe a sigh of relief now. The newly announced card is the flagship of the new Mobile Ultra series in the Sandisk portfolio.

According to the manufacturer it should provide class 6 performance, which means a minimum write speed of 6MB/s in fragmented state. In best case scenarios, the card should be able to achieve the impressive 30MB/s (200x) transfers. Not that the current gen smart mobile devices can go that high, but seeing the development rate you might need such speeds soon enough.

Unfortunately, there's no saying if any of the currently available smartphones are compatible with these microSDXC cards. Sandisk didn't provide a list of compatible devices and none of the smartphone manufacturers say anything about it, so it might turn out that these cards won't be of much use until a new batch of smartphones and tablets hits the market.

Nevertheless, the card is already available at SanDisk's own online store for $219. Ouch!
