Hi guys,
I am still waiting for my N810 to arrive.
I had a question, what type of memory card does it need? Is there a difference between Micro and Mini SDHC cards? I need help, tell me what exactly i need. I was in Futureshop today and the max capacity cards i saw were 8gbs...i was looking for more but 8gb is fine. Let me know, thanks.

the n810 slot is sized for miniSD cards. You can use a microSD (which is smaller than miniSD) if you get an adapter.

Micro sd cards are the smallest, usually used in cell phones and sometimes in certain digital cameras. 8gb is usually how big they get, although there are probably bigger ones that are a lot more expensive.

Mini SD cards are slightly bigger, and what the N810 uses. 8gb is usually what you'll find for max capacity, although there might be some bigger but a lot more expensive.

SD cards are bigger, usually used in digital cameras. N800 uses these. Capacity cap around 32 or 64 gb for SDHC.


When buying sd cards, it might also say "class 2" "class 4" "class 6" or etc. the higher class, the faster read/write speeds you get with them.

I recommend either Crucial, Sandisk, Lexar, or Kingston flash cards. I use MicroSD with a MiniSD adapter, as it allows me to move the same card between any device I want by simply using adapters where necessary.

And to the poster who said MicroSD maxed at 8gb, you're incorrect. They max at 32gb under SDHC, and the newer SDXC will go into the terabytes. Yes, I said terabytes, on a microsd. I got verified word on that from the SD working group at CES.

While there may be 32gb sdhc, they are not very common in most stores..and cost a fortune

SDXC cards have the ability to reach terabytes..but right now they're still planning on first creating 64gb sdxc cards. There's a fine line between ideally being able to reach 2tb vs actually doing it cost efficiently

Incorrect still, The original SDHC standard has theoretical maximum capacity of 2TB and a maximum transfer rate of 6 MB/s.

The SDHC simplified standard maximum capacity was reduced to 32gb and a maximum transfer rate of 6 MB/s.

The SHXC Standerd Maintained the theoretical maximum capacity of 2TB, but brought the base transfer rate to 104MB/s with a theoretical maximum of 300 MB/s.

Also the largest capacity MicroSDHC card currently available is 16GB.

Now, to answer your question BaInsIsIll. yes the n810 uses MiniSDHC which are uncommon in larger capacity's, and for which I recommend reading this.

It is well worth the price and you can get a 32GB SHDC Class 6 for around $130 USD.
Hope this helps.

Well for the record,
I just tried 2 class 10 ,
first is SanDisk 16GB and detected,
2d is "noname" 32GB and not detected by n810...

Original one I had was a Transcend 8GB class6

I'll be curious if they were success to share with 64GB card
