How long have 16 GB cards been on the market? Too fucking long is the right answer. People’s thirst for storage will never be satisfied, and to solve that SanDisk has finally come out with a 32 GB microSD card.

Take your microSD card out of your phone right now. Look at it. Isn’t that the smallest piece of plastic you’ve ever seen? Now marvel that one day you will probably own a 32 GB microSD card. The first batch of these things ships next month at an absurd price of $200. It’ll take a while to reach $100, and even longer to reach $50, but at least the race to the bottom of the barrel has finally started.

This is also the last specification bump for microSDHC. After this you’re going to have to make sure your mobile phone supports microSDXC, but it’s going to be a long, long time until you have to worry about that.

32 GB should last you quite a while, especially since most mobile media these days is streamed, rather than downloaded.

Update: For our UK readers, the card is available for preorder at Mobile Fun for only 100 GBP!
