MicroSD is the leading removable memory format in cell phones according to a new report from research group Strategy Analytics. The report notes that almost 75% of phones sold in 2010 are expected to come with a memory card slot.

Commenting on the trends in card capacity, Stephen Entwistle, Vice President of the company's Strategic Technologies Practice, added, "In 2005 the average capacity of memory cards sold for use in cellphones was 112MB per card. By 2010 we predict that this will have increased to around 1.6GB, equivalent to an annual average growth rate of over 70 percent."
