Samsung's New MicroSD And SD Cards Are Waterproof, Shockproof
With (up to) 24MB/sec OR (max) read speeds, users can transfer 1GB of images in as little as 42 seconds. In order to ensure their reliability, Samsung has designed both lines of memory products to be waterproof, shockproof, and magnet proof, allowing them to withstand some of the harshest conditions. All models are guaranteed to survive up to 24 hours in water, withstand the force of a 1.6 ton vehicle (3,200 lbs), and resist up to 10,000 gauss (slightly less than the power of a medical imaging magnet). That's pretty intense -- a waterproof SD card! If your waterproof camera seal fails, at least your images (up until that point) will be secure.
No pricing information yet, but with a waterproof shell, we're guessing that they'll command a hefty premium.
