Hi,

Some sources state Novo 7 Advanced (I) support up to 16 Gb external microSD card, other sources say Novo 7 Advanced can use a 32 Gb microSD card.

Which is correct ?

Other point: does it matters if the SD is Class 2 or Class 4 (or even higher) ? in other words, does Novo 7 Advanced get advantage from the higher speed or requires some speed (class xx) ?

Thanks,

I've got a 32GB class 4 stuck in mine. Works fine!

Please forgive me for the delay in the answer.

Thanks for your answers.

Finally I purchased an SD card Class 4, 16 GB and it is working perfectly.

32 Gb SD cards are very expensive compared against 16 Gb cards and this was the main reason to acquire a 16 Gb instead of a 32 Gb one. On the other hand, 16 Gb is more than enough for me (and I guess it is so for many people).

The point now is the lack of complete support for external SD in some apps (Acrobat Reader, Documents to Go, etc), but this support possibly will appear in the midterm and there are alternatives (EzPDF reader, Cool Reader, etc).

Good luck.
