Default MicroSD card question

Please Login to Remove!

Just upgraded my OS to 4.5
I am looking to get a MicroSD card that is strictly 8GB (or more)
I have a 2GB in there now. Is there a certain speed that I should be aiming for? Like class 6 or something? Any brands that have speed benefits?

Also, with OS 4.5, can I go more than 8GB?

Thanks!

With OS 4.5, you can supposedly go as high as 8gb, and higher. The problem is, there just aren't many out there larger than 8gb just now. They are becoming available.

I think all of the 8gb cards will be Class 4.

Check this one out, I bought it a couple of weeks ago:
Amazon.com: SanDisk 8GB MicroSDHC Memory Card with MobileMate Reader (Retail Package): Electronics

ah nice. that one looks good. how do you like the reader they gave you? I've seen 4GB microsd cards with classes of 6. the 8GB ones only go up to 4?

Yes the 4gb is class 6 on some.

I do like the Mobile mate reader. I placed my old 4gb card in it, and BAM, I have a cheap/free 4gb USB flas drive the size of my thumbnail.
