    SanDisk Introduces the first 128 GB microSD memory card at Mobile World Congress. Quite impressive if it wasn't for the fact that we have few phones left that still uses the microSD card. For those with Samsung devices, especially those getting the S5, this may be worth looking at.

    Very, very nice. Keep all my content offline and never worry about a wifi/LTE connection (plus, I think uses less battery to stream from the SD).

    That is true! Anything that doesn't involve using the radio is better.

    And a number of news and music services (believe a few video services, as well) now allow offline download/cache, which if obviously a big deal for limited plans. The question is whether more devices will give us the storage to do that with.

    So you can consume a lot of content but still sip data if you have access to wifi, but 16/32 gigs of internal storage with no SD doesn't really cut it.

    Are people that say they need to have this much space listening to music every second of the day for weeks on end or something? I see no need to store that much music on a portable device...I only have 15 GB of music and I don't even go through all of that...I mean, that's over 2000 songs there...

    HD mobile video games and movies are now HUGE! I've been asking and waiting on this 128GB sized card for YEARS (literally). I can't wait to get one.

    Doesn't really do S5 owners any good if the phone doesn't recognize anything larger than 64GB.

    Just need a Firmware update to fix that. ;)

    I don't understand people who see no need to have an SD card...

    The question that comes to mind is, the more space you have to store "stuff" does that make you a digital pack rat?

    I'll admit that 128 Gigs is a lot of storage sweetness though.

    Actually, it's not a firmware issue. it is an OS issue. I have an OG Droid Razr MAXX, that firmware wise, shouldn't recognize anything above 32gb. However, with Andriod 4.2.2 and up, it should be able to address pretty much anything.

    The second I see this in the Wild, I'm getting one.
