UPDATE: The SanDisk 32GB microSDHC memory card is now available for purchase at Amazon.com.
32GB microSD cards will soon be a reality – but it’ll cost you. SanDisk has just announced that it will begin shipping the 32GB version of its microSDHC flash memory cards in the U.S. next month, for the low-low price of $199 per unit.
The company is already accepting pre-orders for the card (model SDSDQY-032G-A11M). Third-party retailers such as Amazon.com and Buy.com will likely begin selling the 32GB card in the next few weeks, and almost certainly for less than the sky-high MSRP.
Many smartphones running Windows Mobile and Android are already compatible with 32GB microSDHC memory cards. Check your product literature for details.

We’re big fans of skin cases for slim smartphones. So when T-Mobile released the HTC HD2 on Wednesday, one of the first questions we asked was Where can we find a high quality skin case for the new HD2?
At the moment, such cases are limited, though there are a few for sale at Amazon.com; the early selection looked a little wimpy for our tastes, however, which led us to search elsewhere.
Luckily, eBay has hundreds of auctions for HD2 skin cases, and a few of them look pretty great.
eBay may not be the first place you think of when you’re looking to buy something new, but it can be a great and budget-friendly resource for smartphone accessories, including cases and skins. Check out HD2 skin cases on eBay if you’re in the market for a second skin for your new phone.
Mahjongg is a classic Chinese puzzle game where you select pairs of matching tiles to make them disappear. The objective (if you’ve never played) is to eliminate all tiles to clear the board.
There are retail versions of Mahjongg for Windows Mobile, but there’s also a recently-updated freeware alternative called Smart Mahjongg from developer Christian Morawietz. The app is free for personal use and includes a range of features such as multiple layouts, undo, tile shuffle and game statistics.
Smart Mahjongg v2.0 requires the .NET Compact Framework 3.5 and is for touchscreen Windows Mobile devices only.
