    5. SanDisk 16GB microSDHC Card for 9300 3G (Curve)

    Rating Average


    While most BlackBerries comes with 2GB of memory that can store a substantial amount of data, most people will want to increase that amount in order to facilitate large media files, games and other applications. Why not go for gold with a 16GB microSDHC card? No SD card adapter included.

    This microSDHC card is compatible with many devices, not just the BlackBerry Curve 9300. Although it is very similar to the standard micro SD card, they are not exactly the same thing and you should check your device’s manual to ensure that they are in fact compatible if you plan to use it in anything other than your BB Curve 9300 3G. Buy the SanDisk 16GB microSDHC Card for $59.95.
