The Extreme cards can operate in extreme cold--a temperature of 13 degrees below zero--to extreme heat, or 185 degrees, and are coated with a layer of heavy-duty silicone. The Ultra II cards are more of a general-purpose, high-performance card for enthusiasts and professionals looking for faster rate products."<br /><br />While these cards are targeted at professional photographers with digital cameras, I can easily see how one of these would be advantageous to have in a Pocket PC or Smartphone.
