    Newegg dropped the price of 16 GB SDHC class 6 card from $155 to $150.
    I've been using one in my 700P for a while and they work well.

    Since there was an enormous thread on SDHC cards that produced absolutely no consensus on how well those cards work - I have to ask:

    Is your 700P able to I/O the entire 16 GB capacity of your card?

    Actually I think the consensus was that we couldn't see over the 4 gb limit even if you formatted the card and partitioned it out.

    The 700P (with latest firmware from Verizon or Sprint, not sure about other carriers) or with a hack, is able to see and use all of 8GB SDHC cards, so I assume 16GB as well. That's why I don't understand why this isn't possible with what should basically be the same hardware and a much more up-to-date OS!

    I really don't consider 0.3% a price drop worth mentioning. I see this thread as a cheap shot at WM users.

    Enjoy your 16g. On day I'll manage to fill my tiny 4gs. Since unlimited data, I now do a lot of streaming (even from home). I just don't have a desire to carry a lot of mp3s anymore.

    Thank you sir. Your answer was clear and a breath of fresh air relative to the most convoluted thread in treocentral history....LOL.

    Lovely...

    The silver lining here is that it seems it is just a limitation of the OS, which raises the possibility to being able to "program/hack" one's way around that obstacle.

    The idea of dealing with partitions is not sexy to me.

    Perhaps someone who is motivated, and talented enough, will come up with a solution one day. I have a 4 gigger in there now. I sure can use the extra 12 (I like to watch my British humour shows on my WX every so often).

    Please forgive my ignorance, you can't use an eight or sixteen GB SDHC card on Windows OS for the Treo? Is that true?
