Â I have here â€“ ready to send to a lucky one of you â€“ a Sandisk 16 GB MicroSDHC memory card. Before you decide you don’t need one of these acronym-laden but very handy memory cards, take a look at your cell phone â€“ or your MP3 player. I have to put on reading glasses to do this myself but if your player or phone is relatively new, it likely has a slot for one of these teeny, high-capacity cards. You’re looking for a slot labeled “MicroSD.” It should be on the side or bottom of your phone or player. Or you might have to pop the cover off your phone to find it. On my T-Mobile Sidekick, I have to remove the back cover to find the slot. But lo and behold, there it is. Mine looks like this with the memory sticking out:
All I have to do is push that card in and close up my phone. I just added a significant amount of memory to my phone. On its own, my phoneÂ starts telling me I’m out of memory if I store a dozen photos on it. Not anymore! I can put hundreds of photos, thousands of songs, even videos on it with one of these cards in. I can pop that same card out and put it in my music player, too.
I have a Sansa View, too, for listening to music and audio books I borrow from the library or buy at Audible.com. One of these cards holds twice what my player can hold.Â So adding a 16GB one to my View means it can hold 24 GBs of music, audio, and video. I’ll never run out of entertainment. Sweet! If you are in the market for a music player and don’t want to drop a lot of cash, you could get theÂ SanDisk Sansa Fuze, win this MicroSD card, and have a player that holds 18 GB for less than $50.
That’s an 8GB card you see dangling out of my phone in this photo. But today I’m giving away a 16GB card. What do you have to do? Post a comment. That’s it. In fact, if you can’t find the slot in your phone, say that. I’ll see if I can help you out.
(Why do I have a photo of Jason Statham in this post? He’s holding a cell phone, silly. I’m assuming it has a MicroSD slot. 🙂 )
