    mini sd cards

    I'm about to order a mini sd card for my xda mini s mobile phone. I took a look at ebay and there are a lot of different brands of mini sd card that people are selling and I was wondering if anyone knew what the difference (if any) there is between all the different brands. If there isn't any significant difference I will go for the cheapest one

    Thanks in advance.

    On the card brands, you get what you pay for up to a point. You don't need to buy the most expensive model on the shelf, but if you go for the cheapest you'll probably regret it at some point (either in speed or short life). Stick to the stuff that looks like a major brand.

    You may be able to use the XDA for Internet access; O2's site should have a driver or instructions available if that's the case.

    Phones and mobile Internet cards can use the same networks, so there's no advantage for one compared to the other overall. However, what's available in your area and through your telco may vary quite a bit compared to other areas, so in a particular situation there may well be a definite faster option.

    A good hint is not to install the O2 active stuff on it, basic is supposed to make it run quite a bit faster. Also, getting a program that automatically closes the program when you press the "x" button instead of just minimizing it is very handy (otherwise you have to keep going into task manager just to close any programs - very annoying).

    Overall I find it's a very good phone, but can get a little sluggish at times, apparently you can overclock the processor quite a bit, but I haven't tried doing that yet! I've also had problems trying to connect to wifi spots (I tried on a virgin train and also in the middle of london), but I did manage to connect it to my wireless modem at home.

    Thanks for advice tuttle, do you know of any websites that do a comparison of loads of different models (like toms hardware does with graphics cards)? I'm not too sure what a major brand for mini SD cards would be (I see a lot of sandisk, are they good?), for example, I saw a Kingston brand, I know they are good for making RAM but I have no idea if they are good at making mini SD cards. Also, are there big variations on speed with these cards? I thought they would all be one generic speed.

    I'd look at digital photography sites -- those folks care more than anyone about how quickly their camera can dump a photo to storage and be ready for the next one. Don't have any good links though.
