Samsung has announced they’ve developed a 16GB NAND flash memory chip for mobile devices. This little beauty is only 51 nanometers (nm) thin, and comes just eight months after Samsung announced production of its 60nm 8Gb NAND flash chip.
“In rolling out the densest NAND flash in the world, we are throwing open the gates to a much wider playing field for flash-driven consumer electronics,” said Jim Elliott, director, flash marketing, Samsung Semiconductor. “To minimize production costs and improve performance, we have applied the finest process technology a ‘half generation’ ahead of the industry, which is introducing 55nm and higher.”
This would be awesome to see in the next-gen of BlackBerrys. It would mean no more fiddling around with microSD chips and would make your BB of choice a true media player. Cool stuff!
