MMC Any news on the 16gb micro-SD?

I'm eagerly awaiting the release of the 16gb micro-SD, which apparently has been confirmed to work on the N95 Classic.

Has there been any word on it's release?

No one knows? Or has it been scrapped?

No one seems to know although judging by the number of sites that already have them listed along with prices I'd assume it's fairly imminent.

I thought the 12gb cards were coming out soon, not 16gb ones?

Last I heard, 12Gb was being skipped and companies like SanDisk were going straight for 16Gb. I've seen "16Gb" mentioned on MobyMemory's website for months now, but no actual item for it is listed for purchase.

16GB MicroSD Card Coming Soon

Our sources tell us that the N95 passed the test with flying color using the firmware version 21.0.016. With older firmware versions: “the Nokia N95 will not handle the card well at all.” And that: “it may trigger some O/S freezing and rebooting when you try to open the Gallery or Music Player.” After upgrading the firmware: “the phone performance was rock solid and we saw no more of the unpredictable behaviour.”

Over 10GB of music files were loaded onto the SanDisk card and based on the test we were informed that:

-Selecting music tracks via the File Manager was reportedly: “straightforward and quick.” We were also informed that the: “menu lists of music folders, and mp3 files from the memory card updating on the screen with no noticeable slowdown compared to onboard storage. (thats a massive improvement on early symbian phones).”

To those familiar with the Music Player app, this is where a scan of the card contents will commence to update the cached track list. Due to the large number of files (over 4000 MP3 files in this case) this process is very slow. However it is a once only operation, as after the first scan, the cached file is only needing a refresh. To avoid this lengthy scanning process it is possible to upload the tracklist via the Nokia PC Suite which stops your phone having to generate it for you.”

Once again it shows that having devices like the Nseries, that are firmware upgradeable is a must! It’s also clear that phones should not only come with built-in memory, but having a memory card slot makes them quite future proof.The first batch are set to arrive September the 23rd

That may be real but the speed rating is only 2 and the 6gb I have at the moment is 4 and the speed on it is absolutely crap. Think I'll be waiting for the N96 with built in 16gb

YAY! I received my 16GB card this morning! Now I'm going through the hassle of moving everything off the old 6Gb card...

Nah it's a class 2 they sent me. It was sent from the mobymemory website (via the link you gave). Does that mean it's slower?
