How would we satisfy our hunger for more storage in our portable devices without Samsung?
Samsung announced today that it has begun mass producing an 8-Gigabit (Gb) NAND flash memory device.
The new Samsung 8-Gigabyte (GB) solution works by vertically stacking two 4GB packages, each package carrying a vertical stack of four 8Gb dies. The 8GB NAND which can store 2,000 MP3 files or 225 minutes of DVD-quality video is expected to be available in the third quarter of 2006.
It is save to assume that Apple will be offering 8GB iPod nano players this holiday season. Steve Jobs sure already bought up the lion share of Samsung's 8GB flash memory. The new 60-Nanometer advancement brings 25 percent higher manufacturing productivity over the previous 70nm design technology.
