Considering this demand, United Kingdom based Integral company has made a decision to pump up their existing microSD storage products portfolio by adding a 512GB microSD card, which happens to be the world's first smallest 512GB microSD.

The memorably-named Integral 512GB microSDXC V10, UHS-I U1 card, ahem, meets the Video Speed Class 10 (V10) standard.

However, former market leader SanDisk's 400GB card is a little faster with a peak transfer speed of 100MB/s and an App Performance Class rating.

European-based Integral Memory will be introducing a 512GB microSDXC solution, with a 80MB/s transfer speed.

Memory cards continue to play an important and essential role alongside the gadgets we buy. The Switch actually supports such microSDs up to 2 TB in capacity, although obviously such cards don't exist yet. There's no word yet on price or availability outside of the United Kingdom, but the 400GB SanDisk is around $250 on Amazon, so expect Integral Memory's card to be more. We don't yet know the price though. They also didn't mention any pricing, but the 400GB SanDisk card sold for a healthy $US249.99 ($313), so this one is sure to be a wallet buster.

Integral believes that though cloud storage has taken a toll on the memory card, users still go for cards for lifestyle reasons.

With this level of storage, these high-capacity memory cards will give Android smartphone and tablet users plenty of room to store high-definition and ultra-high-definition videos. Do share your views on this.
