These cool flash drives and microSD cards from SanDisk will drive you crazy

The beauty of Technology is that everyday it get’s bigger and better metaphorically but it literally gets smaller and smaller so that it doesn’t have to fit the system but to create an entire system altogether. We all remember how 15-20 years ago there was a time when we had floppy drives to transfer a couple hundred MBs of data which was then replaced by compact discs( CDs and DVDs with a few gigabytes.

Later, even those were worn out and replaced by tiny flash drives and smartphone sized external hard disks. But now, the times have changed and it is now time to welcome MicroSD cards which can transfer upto 200 GBs of data effortlessly.

At the Mobile World Congress, held at Barcelona earlier this month, SanDisk which is one of the biggest names in flash storage devices, introduced the 200 GB SanDisk Ultra MicroSD card. It is the world’s highest capacity microSD card for use in mobile devices. Just last year, SanDisk introduced another record breaking 128 GB microSD card. This time SanDisk has even gone a bit further upto 56% more storage capacity.

The 200GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I card features a ten-year limited warranty and will be available worldwide in the next quarter at the price of $399.99. Keeping up with the demands of today’s mobile users, the new card provides the freedom to capture, save and share photos, videos and other files without worrying about storage limitations.
