How about a 512GB micro SD card?

How about a 512GB micro SD card?

Rumoured for a July release, California-based company Microdia announced plans to launch The Microdia Xtra Elite microSD card. It’s the biggest yet at a whopping 512GB, and was announced at the Computex 2015 show (but strangely no working versions were displayed. In that case, keep ’em peeled for the upcoming Coolsmartphone card at 2TB although we haven’t any working copies either).

Microdia say:

“The Xtra Elite will use version 4.0 of the Secure Digital standard, and feature an Ultra High Speed (UHS) bus with data transfer rates of up to 300MBps. Because it’s using SD 4.0, the card features an additional row of pins below the standard ones.”

The price tag will be somewhere around $1,000/£654, although an exact retail price has yet to be decided. Are you interested in an SD card this expensive and this big, and most importantly this easy to lose?
