    You do realise these are memory cards that you fit inside your digital camera.. not SSDs that go inside computers.

    My Canon 400D needs upgrading, this would be a great excuse if Canon start using these.

    How may cameras do you know that can supply 3.3V and 5V power up to several Watts to a hot-swappable 2.5" disk bay? Pretty much takes us out of the handheld territory even if some crazy loon was to build one.

    XQD are memory card sized. (edit: large-ish - more comparable to CF)

    That's quite a piece of kit! I don't think XQD are aimed at those beasts.
