Now is it just me or does this thing look remarkably like the BlackJack? I had to double check, and they are two different devices, but the impending BlackJack II and this device have more than some of their appearance’s in common.

This smartphone has 3G HSDPA, GPS, and Wi-Fi, that’s pretty good for a device like this. Oh yeah, you know that one area where the BlackJack models are lacking, the whole lack of a touchscreen thing? Not on this handset, it has a 2.6-inch touchscreen.

SanDisk 8GB MicroSDHC compatibility test

SanDisk 8GB MicroSDHC compatibility test

I ran a quick compatibility test of the SanDisk 8GB MicroSDHC with five relatively new phones. Three of the five phones are capable of taking advantage of the full 8GB storage while the other two maxed out at 4GB.

The Nokia N95-3, HTC Touch from Sprint and the Blackberry 8310 from at&t passed the compatibility test with flying colors.

After a little sweet-talking at the SanDisk event, Vincent was allowed to spend a few minutes in the company of their marvellously capacious MicroSDHC. 8GB of storage in something the size of a thumbnail is plenty impressive, although if you insist on carrying around the accompanying card-reader (which I suppose you could pretend was some sort of Star Trek phaser) the whole package gets a little bulky.

Well, with the iPhone and iPod Touch coming in 8GB capacities a single expansion card slightly larger than the home button on both of the aforementioned devices is nothing to dismiss. That means that you can take just about any modern phone and grant it the same storage capacity of the iPhone.

There are also M2 cards in the same capacity for those that have compatible devices with those cards. Anyways, like I said, 8GB of storage is a lot when it can all be fit on such a tiny, tiny card.

Our own Vincent Nguyen got his paws on two amazing items last night, the first was the Vodafone Croix, the second was the 4GB microSDHC card that he stuck in it. We are here to talk about the latter though.

So Vincent got to play with the 4GB microSDHC kit that comes with a miniSD and a full sized SD adapter. Since he was only using it with the Croix and his HTC Touch, he only needed the microSDHC portion, but when he uses it with his laptop and camera the other two adapters will come in handy.
