Guys

What is the highest memory card one can purchase for the 8900, and where is the cheapest place to find one?

Thanks

Although the OS can handle larger cards, the largest capacity they currently make is 16GB. Try Newegg or Amazon.

See recent posts in this string: MicroSD Card Current Deals

Many report good deals through NewEgg. I personally normally buy from Amazon. Bulk packaging is cheaper than retail packaging. Buy brand name such as San Disk or Kingston.

Be sure to factor postage and handling (and tax if applicable) into your total cost.

8 GB can be found on Amazon for around $13 while 16 GB still over $50.

Amazon is the cheapest that I have seen for 8gb and 16gb.

SanDisk should be coming out with their 32gb card soon.

If I get the 32GB card, i'm going to find a way to throw Ubuntu on my Javelin.

Microcenter, if you have one nearby, also sells their house brand cards for fairly cheap prices.
