Memory Card Readers For The BlackBerry Torch
A memory card reader is a powerful, convenient device that connects to your PC or Mac and allows you direct, fast access to storage cards. But most modern smart phones like the BlackBerry Torch 9800 offer an alternative. They allow you to connect them to the PC or Mac via USB data cable or Bluetooth and access the memory card as if the device were a hard drive. A memory card reader provides other advantages that a data cable or Bluetooth cannot. And those benefits make memory card readers some of the most popular BlackBerry Torch accessories available.
In fact, memory card readers have become so useful that many manufacturers are including them in the systems they sell, and motherboard manufacturers have begun to include them on their boards. One of the main reasons for this is simplicity. Smart phones are evolving quickly, and the average person gets a new phone every two years or so. Memory cards do not get updated as fast as phones do. The memory cards you had two or even three phones ago are likely still good today. So rather than set everything up for your Torch, you can set it up in a way that’s good for the foreseeable future regardless of which device you’re using.
Another key benefit of a memory card reader is convenience. The only memory card on the Torch is located behind the battery. This can become a troublesome inconvenience. You have to unplug the device, remove the backing, remove the battery, remove the current card, insert the new card, replace the battery, replace the backing and connect the device. Rinse and repeat. With a memory card reader, you simply pull out the current card and insert the new card. While card readers have many slots and allow for multiple cards to be read.
Other advantages include compactness and portability. Most modern memory card readers are barely larger than the cards they access, even those that support multiple slots. This means that working at home is cleaner since there are no messy wires involved. And the devices are small enough that you can take it with you to the office or even on the road when your travel. Most card readers are sturdy units and will hold up for years, and that way you don’t have to abuse your Torch by constantly removing and inserting memory cards.
What makes people most reticent about purchasing a memory card reader is that they expect it to be expensive. In reality they are actually not that expensive. And if you were planning to buy a sync-charge data cable for your Torch anyway, it won’t cost that much extra to buy a memory card reader instead. So before leaving the online shop with your brand new BlackBerry Torch case and BlackBerry Torch screen protector, consider investing in a memory card reader. The advantages make it worth it.
