Looking to swap out that old hard drive or SSD for one that has more storage? You might want to hold off on that thought, as SanDisk has figured out a way to cram 1TB of memory in an SD card. That’s never been done before, and while the product is not yet available for purchase, it’s still an exciting development in the normally rather dull world of SD card storage. More →
Samsung and SanDisk are looking to one-up each other when it comes to expandable memory for smartphones and any other device that supports a microSD card. SanDisk made a 200GB card last year that is quite affordable, and then Samsung came up with a 256GB model. A few weeks ago, SanDisk matched Samsung’s 256GB card with two new microSD options of its own, both more affordable than Samsung’s card. But Samsung stepped up its game and killed the microSD card completely.
The company’s latest memory offering is a UFS
2.0 1.0 storage solution that will work with any device that has microSDXC support future devices that can support expandable storage, but it offers the same lightning-fast storage experience as the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S7. In fact, these new cards are just as fast as SSD drives.
How would you like to protect your iPhone while simultaneously expanding its storage capacity by up to 128GB? That’s exactly what SanDisk is going to let you do with its new iXpand Memory Case for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s.
The USB Type-C port is an excellent innovation. It can deliver both power and high-speed data at the same time while letting device makers create even thinner laptops, tablets and smartphones. The port is already found on a variety of new gadgets, including the 12-inch Retina MacBook, a variety of Windows-based MacBook clones, and some of the hottest Android devices around.
But choosing USB-C devices also means you have to buy adapters or new gadgets that are fitted with these new connectors, including external storage solutions. Thankfully, SanDisk – well, Western Digital – is ready to save the day with a USB-C Dual Drive flash memory drive that can connect to a computer or smartphone via USB-C and USB 3.1. More →
The iPhone’s lack of expandable storage has created an entirely new breed of services and accessories aimed specifically at iPhone users. $650-$750 is a huge amount of money to pay for a smartphone with just 16GB of storage, and that 16GB of space always seems to vanish in a matter of weeks considering how big games and video files are these days. Even users with 64GB or 128GB iPhones often end up filling their handsets with data, and then the dreaded errors like “cannot capture video” begin to appear.
Several solutions exist for this problem. You can use a service like Google Photos to back up your images and videos, or you can use a device like the Lyve Home Photo and Video Manager. Personally, I like the simplicity and efficiency of a simple iPhone-compatible flash drive, and I may have just found my new favorite one. More →
Samsung admitted it was wrong to remove the microSD from the Galaxy S6’s design last year by bringing it back for the Galaxy S7. That means you get to use your existing and future microSD card with Samsung’s best flagship smartphone yet. But now that you can add a microSD card to the Galaxy S7, you should make sure you buy the right kind of expandable memory.
It’s 2016 but two major smartphone issues are yet to be fixed. First of all, there’s never enough storage on most mobile devices whether they’re new iPhones or Android devices. And then there are battery life problems. SanDisk has a new product that aims to fix one of them, and that the shortage of memory. The company has a few popular products that offer users extra memory on the go, and the company updated some of them, announcing new versions at CES 2016 that offer even more storage. More →
How important is Apple’s iPhone supply business? Just ask Intel, a company that might have tried to win Apple orders for certain chips for years, and it’s now rumored to have an iPhone 7 chip in the works. Also, check out Samsung’s most recent earnings report that says it’s the semiconductor business, bolstered by Apple, which helped Samsung return to growth, not the mobile division that makes Galaxy phones.
Now, it looks like Western Digital’s massive $19 billion acquisition of SanDisk might help the storage device maker win some of Apple’s future iPhone orders. More →
