they'll probably have to think up new interfacing to get to 64Gb, and 
they won't work in the n800.  By the time I ca  afford devices that can 
use cards that big, the cards will probably be quite affordable.

By the way, it looks as if I'm ending up with two class 6 8Gb cards.  I'm 
planning to boot from them.
