How to detect if SD card is supported?

I think this Knowledge Base article is outdated. Is it OK to add a compare to "9" for the model number?


public static boolean isSdCardSupported() {
        String modelNum = DeviceInfo.getDeviceName();
        return (modelNum.startsWith( "8" ) && !modelNum.startsWith( "87" )) || modelNum.startsWith( "9" );
