Introduction

It has been human nature to save, alter, and collect precious items that holds emotional attachments for us. That is why storage devices that enables us to store something precious to us is extremely valuable. Therefore, with new innovation of technology we have altered our viewpoints a bit. You don’t see mom’s carrying around your baby pictures in a huge binder summarizing your life from birth. Today, we have something called a Memory Card. A memory card enables the user to store, transfer, share, and collect a multitude of pictures, music, and data onto the miniature sized electronic card much like we used hard disk and/or CD when interfacing with a computer. The Micro SD/ TransFlash MMC is a type of removable flash memory card designed specifically for mobile phones. Like any flash memory card, it can be used to store various types of files, including photos, videos, music, or software. TransFlash cards were introduced on the market in 2004. In 2005, the format morphed into microSD (MiniSD) as shown below. It is mostly just a name change, as all microSD cards should be compatible with TransFlash slots and vice-versa. However microSD cards can also include functionality such as NFC, when used with a compatible microSD-enabled phone. MicroSD / TransFlash is one of the smallest memory card formats available; a microSD / TransFlash card is about the size of a fingernail. It was designed to be smaller than competing formats, to allow phones using the format to be smaller overall. Before the first cards reached the market, the format was first introduced as “T-Flash”, and before that it was known within the industry as “TriFlash-R”. TransFlash was the final name when it reached the market, but that is now changing to microSD. With the introduction of such innovative smaller gadgets and the infusion of a fast culture (Fast-food) and urban popularity of sharing of music, pictures, and data enabled the necessity of  a device such as a Memory Card to store experiences fast and easy without taking up much space. Memory Cards have relatively gone down in price, mainly due to heavy competition and outsourcing. Depending on the brand, the capacity, the size and the technology involved a Memory Card can run you from $20.00 to $150.00. However, if you are not a heavy user a Memory Card with a price tag between $30 to $80 will be just fine. Just make sure that the card is compatible with your device.

Features/Specifications

Types Of Memory Cards

MINI SD

The Mini SD cards is compliant with MMCA specifications V3.2 and usually is compatible with PDA type cellular phones. Because the card supports PDA types it technically has faster transfer and storage speeds (Write: min 1.6MB/sec; Read: min 1.6 MB/sec). In addition the card has lower power consumption. So it will entail waste less of your power source in your cellular device than other memory cards. Plus the Mini SD is the lightest flash memory card around so it won’t feel like a rock nor will it make your device feel heavier. Please remember that this type of card comes with an expansion SD card slot that you will need to adapt your mini Memory Card with. This adaptation enables the the Mini to adapt to various memory card enabled devices in order to transfer and store images, files, or music to and from your card or portable device. This is very important so remember to take care of your cards expansion slot and make sure that your card comes with such slot or it may not be worth the price.

RS-MMC

The RS-MMC is a semi-removable memory card that expands memory capacity for latest mobile phones, digital cameras, MP3 Players, and PDA’s in a mobile form factor that is approximately one-half the size of the standard Multimedia Card (MMC). With RS-MMC, users can transfer data, images, video, and music files to and from their RS-MMC-compatible device. With the included MMC adapter, the RS-MMC card is also compatible with standard MMC (Multi-Media-Card) like TransFlash mobile devices, readers and other SD-enabled devices. In addition the RS-MMC is compatible with all TransFlash mobile devices, which means if you have a device that says it is compatible with TransFlash format than this card will be compatible with your mobile device. However, I recommend that you find this information out yourself. Not only will you learn more about what facilitates your personal necessity for storage, but you will learn what’s out there, which will not only make you happy consumer, but a knowledgeable consumer.  If you need further information or a list of what phones are compatible with the card then Click Here.

Micro SD/TransFlash

The Micro SD/TransFlash MMC was first introduced back in 2004 as described above. Through progression of technology the introduction of the Mini SD MMC was introduced. This card was and still is primarily used for extra storage for various types of files like photos, videos, music or software your cellular device. The Micro SD/TransFlash card is semi-removable and expands memory for mobile phone3. It is compatible with ‘ALL’ TransFlash mobile devices and can be inserted into an adapter and used with other SD-enabled devices out in the market today.  If you are a non-power user looking for a relatively cheaper, but older substitute then opt to get one of these.

Conclusion

With the infusion of so many types of MMC’s out in the market today its no wonder that some of us seem so confused. All types of MMC’s out there today will do the job that you want. But to do the job, you must relay what is necessarily needed for yourself. Remember that size, capacity, speed, adaptability and technology are the main functions of the MMC. So if you a price conscious consumer then opt for a Micro SD/TransFlash card, but if you are trying to keep up with technology change then go for the Mini SD, but if you want a bit of both then your only option now is the RS-MMC. Though whatever you go for compare the function stated and you will be just fine.  If you need further information or a list of what phones are compatible with the card then Click Here
