Not so long ago to get 2 terabytes of storage you'd need a thumping-great 3.5-inch mechanical hard disk drive. But now the Japanese company Kioxia Corporation claim to have produced a working prototype of a 2TB microSDXC card. To put that in context, even full-size SD cards aren't yet available in a 2TB capacity, currently topping out at 1TB. Though Kioxia have apparently only confirmed the card's "basic operation", it's nonetheless incredible that so much storage could be packed into a sliver of plastic the size of a thumb nail.
