Wirelessly posted (The Dacia Sandero of data plan)

The size of the card depends on what OS you're running on your device. I believe anything 4.5 or above can take a 16gb card.

As for that particular brand, haven't heard of it.

Same question I was wondering, they seem to have the cheapest price, BUT it looks as if their tech suppt. may lack as they only provide email suppt. and the website does not look comparable to other brand name sites. In theory, 4.5.0.82 OS's and up should fit 16GB micro sdhc cards but it's how good the quality withstands.

I know that Kingston and Transcend work great for a fact.

I've used several media cards of various brands. Never had a problem with any. Sometimes I'll go with a more well known brand just for piece of mind.

If the data is important, then the card should also be important. I always stick with the major brands Pny, SanDisk, Lexar, etc.

As for size (from the FAQ):

The BlackBerry devices that have media card capabilities are from the 81xx, 83xx, 88xx and 9000 series.

All of these series use a MicroSD card and have the following maximum capacities:

Media Card Size Limit

BlackBerry OS 4.2.0 -- Up to 2 GB
BlackBerry OS 4.2.1 -- Up to 4 GB
BlackBerry OS 4.2.2 -- Up to 4 GB
BlackBerry OS 4.3.0 -- Up to 8 GB
BlackBerry OS 4.5.0 -- Up to 8 GB
BlackBerry OS 4.5.0.81 and above -- Up to 16 GB
BlackBerry OS 4.6.0 -- Up to 32 GB

Thanks Dubdub, That's exactly the info I was looking for. Seems the Sandisk 32Gb MicroSD Card is about to hit the streets here in the UK - 20th to 30th March I have seen quoted - with a price of about 90 GB Pounds.
