Memory Cards for Tablets

Whilst some of the most popular tablets such as the Apple IPad have no facility to allow external flash memory cards to be added, many others now incorporate a SD socket which allows memory capacity to be increased whilst also facilitating easy data transfer from other SD equipped devices also using a SDHC memory card.


Memory Cards for Tablets: What is Backward Compatibility?
As products such as Tablets improve their specifications from one generation to the next, there are compatibility issues to consider. Devices that only accept the original SD (Secure Digital) card format will not be compatible with SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) or SDXC (Secure Digital ‘Xtra Capacity’) memory cards. However, both SDHC and SDXC memory cards are backwards compatible, enabling them to read previous format cards. A device like a Tablet is backwards compatible if products designed for the new standard can receive, read, view or play older or less powerful standards and formats.

  • SD devices can only use SD memory cards - SD capacities range from 128MB to 2GB
  • SDHC devices can use both SD memory cards and SDHC memory cards - SDHC capacities range from 4GB to 32GB
  • SDXC devices can use SD memory cards, SDHC memory cards and SDXC memory cards - SDXC capacities range from 64GB to 2TB
