8 GB in the phone

Sandisk is set to put 8 GB memory cards into the mobile phone arena later this year. That's enough storage for 5 hours of MPEG-4 video, presumably at a sort of You-tube quality. I am more excited about what it could mean for the quality of lets say 1 hour of high quality video shot on a mobile. If its in time for the Olympics next year, what will this mean to broadcasters who have paid millions for sports rights? Probably nothing for 2008...but by 2012...
