MicroSD card vs. MicroSDHC card for my 8220

I've got a new Blackberry Pearl Flip 8220.  The microSD card that came with it is too small, so I'm going to upgrade.  Can I use a microSDHC card, or do I need to stick to the microSD cards (which are smaller)?

Unless your device is very old, the limit is one of your device OS. See this KB:

Yes, those links seemed to settle it.  I did search for such a table, but didn't find it.  I've found that the search function for Blackberries tech support often doesn't seem to find relevant info.  Also, interestingly, both links lead to the same page, even though the links were different.  Thanks to both of you for your help.
