SanDisk has announced it will ship the highest capacity microSDHC card alongside its first foray into SDXC cards.

SDXC (SD extended capacity) is a new iteration of the SD memory card format that was announced in January 2009. The format claims higher read/write speeds to a theoretical maximum of 300MB per second and supports a maximum storage capacity of 2TB.

At the moment, other manufacturers such as Panasonic and Toshiba have SDXC cards on the market ranging in capacities from 32GB to 64GB. Currently, only a few digital camera manufacturers support the new format, including Canon and Panasonic. SanDisk's first SDXC card will be available in a 64GB capacity with a read/write speed of 15MB per second and retail for AU$415.

Also announced was the highest capacity microSDHC card currently available, a 32GB card for mobile devices. It will retail for AU$215.90.
