yay for 100th post
Thanks for the link (a good way to post your 100th!). As I said earlier in this thread, my primary reason for anticipating this is the inevitable drop in price on the 16GB cards. I really want one for my Clip+. I'd like a 32GB, of course, but there is something just so wrong about putting $200 worth of storage in a $65 device. Well, actually there isn't. But in tough fiscal times, a 16GB will do me just fine.

It's probably another player with subpar, buggy, crippling firmware.

Thank goodness. If it was going to be a new DAP, I was going to get pissed as I just ordered a Clip+. Looking forward to these new 32GB cards to become affordable though.

Hmm... with 'big' announcement comes big disappointment.

What is so special about 32 GB for that price?
I bought a 32 GB USB stick in Singapore this winter for €50,- Ok, it is no card, but OTOH, it is faster.

It's the first 32GB SDHC. Big news for phones, music players, etc.

Yep it is big news for me, I have been waiting awhile for 32GB microSD. For years I have stuck to my Zune30 upgraded with a 100GB hard drive cause I only listen to lossless so I need a huge amount of storage and the Zune sounded pretty good.

Well I liked my Zune\XM5 combo but have been looking to upgrade for a few years now. After a lot of searching the SFLO:2 ended up being the player that met my needs.

It has 16Gb on board storage and a microSD slot. With 16GB card I needed 5 of them to match the current storage I had with my Zune. Now with 32GB microsd I only need to carry around 3 of them and that will give me even more storage than my current setup. This won't be feasible until the prices come down, but at least now they are out.

So because I knew my next player was going to have a microSD slot I have been waiting patiently for this.

32GB microsd cards have been promised for over 2 years now.

Great, I started a thread just so we all can get our hopes smashed on the rocks. Really, it's nice to have a 32gb microSD card made available to us all, but it's surely not a "Big" announcement.

Oh well, hope some of you guys got some good news from this. Me, "meh",...............

16GB Microsd cards aren't all that much right now. I can get a sandisk one on amazon for 30$ it works pretty well with my SFLO:2.

How cheap are you guys expecting them to get?

QFT. I never had high hopes, so nothing dashed for me...

Will be happy to pick up a 32GB microSDHC card when competitors start releasing them with higher class ratings and lower prices, though.
