NEWS – Yep, you read that title correctly: You can buy a micro SD card that’s 1 TB in size. SanDisk recently revealed that you can buy the first ever 1 TB card directly from their online store or from Amazon. As of today, it’s out of stock in both locations, but when it’s available, it will set you back a cool $450. Read speeds are up to 160 MB/s and write 90 MB/s, assuming you have a gadget capable of reaching such impressive speeds. Who would need (and being willing to pay) for such a card? Drone operators come to mind as someone who might want to capture video for as long as possible before having to land and switch cards, or maybe an athlete with a GoPro catching a long ride. In fact, anyone using a device in harsh conditions may want to check this out, as SanDisk says this Extreme card is “temperature proof, waterproof, shock proof, and x-ray proof.” If you can think of any other great applications for such a large card, or if you can find a store where it’s in stock, let us know in the comments below.
