    Where is the best price?

    What class should I get? Does it matter?

    Thanks

    I went with this one from Buy.com

    217573912 - Search - Buy.com

    32gig, less than $70 and it is Class 4, not to bad. Personally I did not research to see if I would get much more speed form a CLass 6 card.

    the ebay ones are almost always junk. I purchased a 32gb Class 10 Kingston for $89 from newegg.com . It transfers really fast. 12-14mb per second

    Little help here, was it 14 Mbps or 14 MBps?

    Either way, those speeds are more than fast enough to play a high quality video without interruption (which I would consider to be the bare minimum usability requirement as far as card speed is concerned.)

    Isn't class 6 the minimum for AVCHD?

    There isn't really a hard and fast answer. Technically, Blu Ray rips can spike to 54Mbps, but in testing I did with the Xoom I was getting "acceptable" results with bitrates around 1Mbps (onscreen playback, not connected to an external monitor.)

    Can anyone tell me if you can use the SD Card to hold those apps that are SD Card compatible as you can on your Android phone? I was just assuming that this was so but would like to verify this.

    If you are comparing the 16GB $399 with the 32GB $499 model, consider this

    Fry's HP 16GB microsSD Class 4 Card $17.99

    It is only a Class 4 but it would tide you over for $18 instead of $100. Later you can upgrade to 32GB or add an SD card or USB thumb drives. The maximmum memory is Base+32GB+128GB+64GB+64GB or about 300GB.

    A Class 10 32GB is more like $85.

    Be really careful if you are searching eBay to only search for new items from the US. Also check to make sure they have at least 50 good ratings. Here is a search for 32GB microSD Class 10 but the prices really are not much better than newegg, amazon, or buy.com.

    The internal cards for phone and the pad are micro SD cards. Same card should work in either device.

    The dock/keyboard has a SD card slot. The SD card is larger than the micro SD.
