Differences between the MMC memory cards

Archived from groups: alt.cellular.nokia (More info?)

I have a new 6230i which I am very pleased with. I am wondering to buy a
larger memory card to use it as a MP3-player. When I search for prices I
discovered that there seems to exist several different types of MMC cards:
MMC, RS_MMC, MMC mobile and MMC dual voltage.

I have found that RS-MMC are 1/2 sized MMC cards, but I don't know the
differences between the rest.
- Could anyone give a short owerview of the different types?
- Are there any advantages/disadvantages of the types?
- Could I use any of the types in my phone (perhapes exept the RS-MMC)?


Thanks
Boerge

    Boerge,

    I'm pretty sure for your phone all of the above cards will work correctly.
    That said, I'm going to go for a 1Gb RS DV MMC as it'll fit almost all
    phones and cameras and is somewhat future proof.

    Hope this helps.

    According to www.mobymemory.com 6230i works fine even with 2GB!

    From what I have found it seems like MMC mobile and MMC Dual voltage is
    actually the same type. Dual voltage is actually a property of the MMC
    mobile. I assume it has to do with power consumption.
    Does anyone know to how much this actually influence on the time I can use
    the phone before re-charging? As the price difference is rather large, it
    should have a significant effect, or...
