Sandisk’s 200GB MicroSDXC card now available, much cheaper than expected

A 200GB SD card that Sandisk demonstrated during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in March is now available and for a price that’s much lower than expected. The 200GB MicroSDXC card was announced in March but Sandisk never provided the availability date. The card is now available on the web, e.g. at Amazon.myce-sandisk-200gb-microsd

Sandisk claims read speeds of up to 90MB/s and write speeds are slightly lower specified. The company also claims the memory card is waterproof, temperature proof, shock proof, X-ray proof and magnet proof

During the price was announced to be around $400, but Amazon lists it at $329, which is much cheaper than expected (but still $1.6 per GB). The SanDisk Ultra 200GB (Class 10 UHS-I) is covered by a 10 year warranty and comes with a SD adapter.
