Samsung’s Latest Stylish Memory Cards Are Like The Sexy Underwear You’ll Never Show Off

by Chris Gampat on 02/17/2012

In one of the most interesting technology moves I’ve ever seen, Samsung has today introduced what they call, “Stylish” memory cards. Numbering seven SD and Micro SD in total, the company claims speeds of 24MB/sec read speeds on cards with a capacity of 4GB or higher. Plus, they also promise the ability to transfer 1GB of information in as little as 42 seconds. Each card also features a brushed metal chassis. Additionally, they can 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).

Spec table and a video of a waterproofing test I did with SD cards a while back are after the jump. Don’t ask about my appearance; I’m not wearing sexy underwear either.
