Formating a new memory card.

I have recently purchased an 8GB memory card for my camera. Do I need to format the card once it's in my device.

I've always formatted a new card for a camera using the camera. Might gain a little more space (?), but it takes no time at all to do it.

It especially applies to a new card. It takes no time at all and I find that cards formatted in the camera they are going to be used to have more capacity than those that are formatted elsewhere.
