If memory serves me, an "SD card" is a "flash memory" card which can
give you "N" Gigabytes of non-volatile storage. It's really convenient
if you are doing things that require memory storage; e.g. photographs.
I've got a 2GB Micro SD Card installed in my phone. I've never used it
for anything but it's there if I think of something to use if for. I
think I paid $8 for it. It's enough to shoot a "short subject" if I
ever see anything worth shooting and if I remember that my phone can do it.
Don't hold your breath!
