Follow-on products

In March 2003, SanDisk Corporation announced the introduction of the miniSD and demonstrated it at CeBIT 2003.[52] The SDA adopted the miniSD card in 2003 as a small form factor extension to the SD card standard. While the new cards were designed especially for mobile phones, they are usually packaged with a miniSD adapter that provides compatibility with a standard SD memory card slot.

At CTIA Wireless 2005, the SDA announced the small microSD form factor (and SDHC, with capacities in excess of 2 GB and a minimum sustained read and write speed of 17.6 Mbit/s). SanDisk had conceived microSD when its CTO and the CTO of Motorola concluded that current memory cards were too large for mobile phones. The card was originally called T-Flash, but just before product launch, T-Mobile sent a cease and desist order to SanDisk claiming that T-Mobile owned the trademark on T-(anything)[citation needed], and the name was changed to TransFlash. TransFlash and microSD cards are the same; each can be used in devices made for the other.[53] SanDisk induced the SDA to administer the microSD standard. The SDA approved the final microSD specification on July 13, 2005. Initially, microSD cards were available in capacities of 32, 64, and 128 MB.

In April 2006, the SDA released a detailed specification for the non-security related parts of the SD memory card standard and for the Secure Digital Input Output (SDIO) cards and the standard SD host controller.

In September, 2006, SanDisk announced the 4 GB miniSDHC.[54] Like the SD and SDHC, the miniSDHC card has the same form factor as the older miniSD card but the HC card requires HC support built into the host device. Devices that support miniSDHC work with miniSD and miniSDHC, but devices without specific support for miniSDHC work only with the older miniSD card.

In January 2009, the SDA announced the SDXC family, which supports cards up to 2 TB and speeds up to 300 MByte/s.

MicroSD=TF Card

Folks, I know TF is microSD. My point was, the TF card slot is stated in specs, so I don't know where's the ‘no idea on microSD’ come from.

From ignoring 193 pages of this thread and just put something in question to confuse other readers.

What am I missing? I've been reading every new post and I don't think I'm missing anything...I'll update the title though.

Don't worry guys. Fiio X3 will have 8 GB built in memory and we can add a 64 GB micro SD FAT32.The future is getting brighter and cheaper for high capacity cards.Can't wait to read the reviews on this.Well done James Feiao, we all appreciate your hard work and that you do listen to your customers requirements.

I remember FiiO having re thoughts on Micro SD a while back (when they were cutting stuff out) so I just said no idea.

I honestly skim through most of these posts. So sorry guys.

My current DAP on the go kit is just so bulky for my tastes >_>. The MRB is a huge 1.3 inch thick unit running 5/8 the length of my iPod and its ridiculous.

So ridiculous I just used my iphone 4S direct out for a month or two

Which is why I thought that maybe I missed something, 'cause can't say I remember everything said on these 190+ pages either. But since Ishcabible didn't update the top post with ‘no slot’, I prefer to think it's still on.

So, yeah, I can see why you thought what you thought, no worries, I just felt we should have elaborate that point a bit, since we got at leas some info on that :)

Yeah, I just looked it over and trudged through most of this thread. Looks like it's got everything and I should stop posting late at night. redface.gif

my cowon s9 died on me =(...after many many years of service. not sure if i should wait for this or get upgrade to a newer cowon. any thoughts?

Does the X3 have ALAC support? It isn't listed, but my ALAC files have the same file extension (.m4a) as my AAC files, which are supported. No ALAC support would be a deal breaker.

As a previous owner of the J3, do wait for the X3, if you can.
