What is MiniSD?

A MiniSD card is one of the many types of flash-memory storage device used to store media files and information. It’s mainly used in mobile phones, handheld gadgets, and digital cameras. MiniSD cards are quite smaller than regular SD cards; they measure 21.6 X 20 X1.40 mm and the newer models can hold data up to 2GB. Generally, the first MiniSD cards had a data storage capacity of between 16MB to 256MB.

Nowadays, MiniSD cards are not so popularly used due to their low data storage capacity. Most electronic devices such as cell phones, tablets, music players and smartphones have adapted to Micro SD cards that are a bit bigger in size with data storage capacity of up to 128GB. MiniSD cards can be connected with PC using a MiniSD card reader or via another device that can connect to PC through a USB connection.
