    Not sure about 2 tb,.... lol!!! But GS 3 owners can install 64gb Class 10 MicroSDXC cards perfectly fine. Hopefully the OS supports these cards......

    I've read that people have used 64gb sdxc memory card in the Nokia 808, but that's it.

    that would be a STUPID artificial limitation, and I don't believe it. If the ATIV S supports SDXC it will be a major coup over the other phones. If I could pack my entire media collection on a 128Gb card it would be pretty epic.

    I agree if i could put all my video movie app ect of one 128gb sdxc card it would be epic i hope this phone comes out for t mobile and Microsoft does not have a limit on sdxc card size one day i could have all my media/movie/games and app for windows 8 windows phone 8 and xbox 720 on one 2tb sdxc card

    As i say, i've only read it. I'm not passing that off as fact, as most of what i read is gossip from sites like this.

    To be fair though, its not entirely stupid. Every bit of content we put on our phones will start effecting performance.

    If you have a 32GB card, thats a huge number of photos/MP3s. The indexing task required to validate added/removed content will take ages, then the media player will have to navigate huge lists of content every time you want to do anything.

    As you add 64gb, 128gb etc, it'll all start effecting performance more and more.

    As i recall, there was a WP7 device which had a SD card for its system memory, and they found serious performance issues when using the wrong SD cards, because SD cards are all measured on max input/output speed, not random access times for accessing content.

    The same problems will start occuring with WP8 when people start bogging them down with massive content collections, an artifical SD card limit will annoy less people than poor phone performance.

    It was the original Samsung Focus, snailUK, and yes performance issues followed.

    I love that Sammy is the only Hero device with the storage. But it sure will be nice when they come out and give more specifics on it.

    I am glad the government recovered that alien spacecraft, so they could reverse engineer all their technology and get that much storage on such a small memory stick. :D

    I am not complaining i just want to be able to put all my media from my computer to my Xbox and my phone on one 1tb sdxc card two or three years from now. it would be nice if i could put my music and video on a 64gb sdxc card and have my apps games ect on the 32gb

    hmm, putting so much of something so small is asking for trouble

    personally, I like the limited storage, it stops me becoming complacent, ****, to be honest I don't think I would need to fill a 16GB card if im truly honest.

    I get the feeling technology has led us to doing such things because we can, rather than us needing such things and the technology filling the gap...

    More storage isn't a bad thing. If you dont need it dont use it.

    I didn't say it was a bad thing

    I mean that if I give someone a 1TB card they will try and fill it because they can, rather than because they need to.

    Sticking so much data on a small card is also asking for trouble, corruption, device fail, theft.

    There is a good reason RAID is used on large volumes

    Your right there if i did have a 1TB sdxc card i would start putting random s*** on like movie i will never watch or apps i don't need or will use. I have a 250gb hard drive and have most of my games and my movie i have downloaded even if i dont play them i only have 98gb left.

    Yeah, way too much. There's nothing I need to carry with me that important.

    But like anything else in the tech market, give it 6-8 months... It will be $200-250 and 256gb would be reachable for most people who just NEED extra space.

    Still think it's too much, $79-99 would be right in the range for me...

    I have the Lumia 820 with a Class 10 SDXC 64 gb card. I have close to 8000 songs loaded onto the card along with pictures and videos. When first opening music and trying to play a song the phone will lock up for about a minute.... It works fine after that. Hoping this will be corrected soon.

    I had the Samsung Focus with a 32 gb SD card (total of 37 gb of usable storage), it was fully loaded with music, apps and games and I never had any issues. I really liked the fact that on the Focus the card was integrated into the phone, gave me more room for games and apps, the Lumia is limited with only 8 gbs of built in storage for games and apps.
