Here’s a short follow up to the ongoing Windows Phone 7 micro-sd drama. Samsung has officially sated via its support site that the SanDisk 8GB Class 2 micro-sd is now certified for the Samsung Focus if a user wishes to use the on-board expansion slot:
Hi, actually the Samsung Focus has a 16GB internal memory and expandable up to 32GB. So you can insert a 32GB micro SD card on this device. However there are certain limitations when it comes to the micro SD card. Compatible micro SD cards will be branded as “Windows Phone 7 Compatible” on the packaging. Approved cards can be obtained from the manufacturer or carrier. (The SanDisk 8GB class 2 micro SD card has been certified.) Many commercially available retail micro SD cards are not approved for use in Windows Phone 7. Use of unapproved cards may cause performance degradation or device instability, including unexpected reset and loss of user data. A micro SD card class is not an indication of meeting Windows Phone 7 requirements.
It’s also interesting to learn that micros-sd cards branded “Windows Phone 7 Compatible” are now going to be sold.
Update: SanDisk has certified Five cards (thanks for the tip Josh)
