iPods, Cell Phones, And How They Use Memory Sticks

by on November 16, 2007

Q: What is the difference between the function of memory sticks in a cell phone and an iPod?

A: None of the Apple iPod models of which I am aware have the capability to accept memory cards (sometimes called memory sticks). Instead, there is storage built into the iPod itself. The Apple iPhone does not accept memory cards either. This is in contrast to many cellphones, smartphones, and portable media players available today. I personally prefer the ability to expand a device’s capacity with a memory card. But many people are very satisfied with the storage provided in today’s iPods and iPhones.
