Lexar 32GB SDHC Card

Lexar today put out a pair of memory cards aimed at those who need high capacities with more advanced cameras and phones. The 32GB Platinum II SDHC is one of the first cards to make use of Micron's particularly dense 34 nanometer flash memory and takes advantage of it to provide the capacity while still transferring data at about 60X. Although rated as a Class 4 (minimum 4MB/sec) card, the Platinum II is claimed by Lexar to write at a minimum 9MB per second and thus to work well for some RAW photo shooting as well as up to 12 hours of video for HD camcorders.

The 16GB microSDHC card is based on the same 34nm technology as the larger card but primarily uses it for sheer space savings; its speed isn't officially listed. Lexar estimates that it should hold about 4,000 songs.

Both cards are available today and cost $140 for the 32GB Platinum II where the microSDHC card is priced at $100.
