Samsung has announced a new line of micro SD cards that will provide record-breaking read and write speeds to smartphones and tablets. The Micro SD cards are targeted at devices with LTE capabilities because of the high performance levels required by high performance LTE devices. The Ultra High Speed-1 (UHS-1) cards will only be offered in 16GB flavors to start. Samsung says that the new cards are capable of reaching 80MB/s read rates, which will get a lot of peoples attention in the tech world. That's nearly 4x faster than the 21MB/s speeds of today's fastest microSD cards. Hows that for speed? The South Korean company says that it plans to offer higher capacity options in the future. With production on the cards beginning last month, it's only a matter of time before we start seeing them hit retail shelves. A few of us in the office will be picking one up as soon as they drop, any other takers?
