Expandable storage seems to be dying off in Android. The excuses reasons are varied, but the writing seems to be on the wall. Of course, each time a new flagship rolls off the line sans microSD slot, fans cry out in frustration. SanDisk is taking on the challenge of making an accessory meant to bring expandable storage to any device. The result is called SanDisk Connect, a pair of portable drives with Wi-Fi that your phone or tablet can connect to for file storage or content streaming.

If you're searching for a deal on flash storage, today may be the day to act: Amazon's Gold Box deal of the day for February 4th includes a sizeable selection of SanDisk cards and flash drives.

While the list includes full-sized SDXD, CF cards, and USB flash drives, of particular interest to the Android crowd will be the microSDXC cards, which are becoming absurdly cheap of late. For just $24, you can get a 32GB mSDXC card, or for $47, a 64GB card.

Once in a while Amazon throws a sale we can't miss, and today's SanDisk memory blowout as part of the Gold Box deals is a perfect example of just that.

We have fast SanDisk MicroSD "Ultra" cards ranging from 16GB ($18.99) to 64GB ($59.99) at lowest prices ever for these cards according to all the price checks I've run. The 32GB MicroSD is in the sweet spot of $27.99. Remember, these are not Class 2 or Class 4 - they're high quality Class 6 and Class 10 cards rated for 30MB/s transfer speeds and Full HD video recording.

I've got a 16GB microSD card that I primarily use in my phone for local music playback. It's about half full - I really only keep my most recent music picks and a workout playlist on it, and stream everything else. Which brings us to a bit of a hiccup given that this is a review of a 64GB microSDXC card. In our Android-specific case, do you really even need a large amount of storage now that you can stream just about everything and anything on your Android device, and most ship with enough on-board storage to satisfy the app space of all but the most insane power users?
