February 19, 2010, By Thomas Antony

Secure Digital cards, or SD cards as they are known, have become one of the most popular forms of storage media used in portable devices ranging from personal media players to cameras and camcorders. Over the years, the format has been growing in speed and capacity, switching the SDHC standard to allow for sizes bigger than 4GB and now soon to shift to the SDXC standard for even larger sizes. Kingston has announced today that they are shipping a couple of new cards, including a 32GB SDHC card.

The cards are Class 10, promising read speeds of 22 MB/s and write speeds of 18 MB/s. Both of these speeds are higher than those specified by “Class 10” ( 10 MB/s ). The cards will come in capacities of 16 GB and 32 GB. The cards are compliant with the SD Association specification version 3.00. The 16Gb version will retail for $129 while the 32GB one will cost you $245. If you take a lot of pics/HD videos, this kind of storage will definitely come in handy.
