Will 16G kingston SDHC work on my Bold?
Hi. I'm a relatively new blackberry user with the bold being my first bb. I'm looking to expand the space I can use bb purchasing an SDHC card. I naturally want all the space I can get, so I was wondering if I can use the 16G Kingston SDHC on my Bold?

Yes it will. There should be no problem with this card in your phone. Yoy should look at getting a Class 4 card as it will allow faster transfers to and from the card whilst connected to your PC. There are also reports that whilst a Class 2 card works very well for all BlackBerry functions, video playback seems smoother.

Three 8GB micro sd cards cost the same as one 16GB.
I would prefer having 24 GB in three cards than 1 with 16GB for the money, also having the reader you could have one 8GB loaded in the bold, and the other two being used with other devices.
Some people may say that they would like to put one card and have all contents together and avoid having to pull and insert the card.
A matter of economics and versatility.....

It doesn't have to be changed frequently. Most people will be able to hold their contents and then some in one 8GB card. Being realistic most of us are pack rats and think that we must have everything in there. A well organized content should allow you to have the essentials in one card and the ones you see less frequent on the others.
For day to day life, we don't need 3000 songs and 15 videos in the device. LOL

OS version 4.6 running on the Bold 9000 is supposed to support up to 32GB micro SDHC cards.
The going rate for the 16GB chips is about $99.
By comparison, fast (Class 6) 8GB chips are now found for under $15.
Check NewEgg for their latest prices on the 8GB chips.
The premium price you will pay for the 16 GB chips may not be sensible, unless you must contain that much data on one chip.
One thing is certain. The price of the chips will come down over time.
At this week's CES show there was an announcement that there are 2TB (terrabyte) chips forthcoming: a massive jump in the MicroSDHC format.

if your going to use your bold as a replacement for you ipod, as i do, then why would i want to buy a card which i cant fit all my music on?
Its fair enough playing the economic argument but people want larger cards so they can make there bold fit for the purpose for which they bought it or the conditions in which they use it. Whats the problem with that? 16gb cards are great.
