Default 4 GB Micro SD on EBAY

Please Login to Remove!

4 GB Micro SD Card on Ebay - Click Me!

Do you think the auction is real? I know they made at least one 4 GB card for show off factor, but I'm pretty sure it's not out yet. Sandisk.com has no mention of a 4GB micro SD Card.

What do you guys think?

yeah i'm pretty sure it wouldn't work anyways..

another thing that leads me to believe this is a fake is there is no paypal option.

You must not buy a lot of things with feedback requirements like that -

I have bought and sold high dollar items with no items with feedback far less than that. Guess I was lucky.

Its usually pretty easy to spot the fakers out there if you have done enough ebay transactions.

Does not look like a SANDISK branded card. Just the adapter.

There could be other companies internationally that already have the 4G on production.

Not yet, but soon enough. 4GB microSD High Capacity Card announced by SanDisk at 3GSM World Conference

Blackberry doesn't support higher than 2GB because they're unable to obtain, prove, and certify compatibility with the 4GB.

If there is a 4GB microSD card, it most likely won't work with the Pearl anyway. The Pearl uses FAT16, which has a practical limit of 2GB. If a 4GB card comes out, it will probably be FAT32.

^A proper reformat should take care of that, if necessary.

The folks at Moto Q had the same issues with the 2GB and 4GB, their solution was to format it outside and just plug the 4GB on their phones. It worked.

I *think* that these High Capacity microSD cards require different actual hardware or code to work right (btw: Moto Q uses miniSD, not microSD). Obviously they're new and I'm still reading up on them, but several nerdy people have mentioned a 'HC' card isn't backwards compatible with a generic microSD slot, technically (not physically).

(as stated I haven't verified any of this, merely what I'm reading...)

I don't think a reformat will make a 4gb card compat with the perl.... It's going to have to be addressed in a RIM software release....

Which is something easily foreseen and prepared for given RIM's commitment to the consumer market. (Especially since expandable memory doesn't do a damn thing for business use).

I tried using the brand " Kingmax" unfortunately this card did not work the 1st time I used, i could not format it or do anything with it... I would stay away from brand... I have used upto to 2gb without any issues... plus this is plenty of storage for me.

Regarding that (not to go too far offtopic) -- if I had the ability to read docs off of my SD card (PDFs mainly) it would be a very proper, normal business use. I would keep things like the phone extensions list of the office on it and various XLS spreadsheets I need (techie junk, mainly cross-reference docs I keep updated), as well as MP3s and such. I in fact did this on the S60 handsets I have, and it was excellent to not have every company extension in my address book, and just look them up as I needed to call a random person.

Some hardcore business users might balk at something like that ("what if it was stolen!" or whatever), but the lack of a true, good PDF reader that can read off a SD card is a killer to this platform and something I sorely miss - it's what keeps people on Treo devices to some extent. It just depends on what type of company you work for, what you do and how you like to use your handset.

==
(for the record I've tried eFile and it's pretty unusable on a Pearl, the fonts are sooo tiny and it can't read SD card yet. personal opinion of course, I'm sure other people love it. I just want a generic Adobe PDF reader.)

I have the same need for PDF storage, and although I have a certain level of concern over security (patents/design for prototyping/etc), it's a matter of the lesser of 2 evils by my judgment. Either have it available and assume the risk of loss, or be treated like a child and accept only what I'm allowed.

Repligo hasn't failed me yet. Good service and support. I also need to be able to receive zipped .jpgs (or .jpgs saved as .PDFs) via email and store to the card, but ... there we go again.
