“SDXC combines a higher capacity roadmap with faster transfer speeds
as a means to exploit NAND flash memory technology as a compelling
choice for portable memory storage and interoperability,” said Joseph

“With industry support, SDXC presents manufacturers with the
opportunity to kindle consumer demand for more advanced handset
features and functionality in consumer electronics behind the
ubiquitous SD interface.”
