Lexar announced the first 128 GB SDXC memory card we are aware of. It is targeted at photo enthusiasts, thanks to a 133x read speed (about 20 MB/s), but the size is beyond what even photographers really need. What could you store in 128 GB?
I still remember the good old days, when we stored digital images on floppy disks and we had to carry a pack of 10 or 20 disks with us even on just daily vacation trips. Back then, my beloved Sony Mavica FD95 stored 3 1.6MP images on one 1.44 MB disk. This new 128 GB card could store almost 553,000 pictures on a device that is a fraction of the size of that old floppy. Mind boggling.
