Samsung moviNAND boosts internal memory to 2GB

Samsung moviNAND

Many current digital cameras and cellphones pack some degree of internal storage to save the user the trouble of bringing a flash card with them when they travel. These are almost always exercises in compromise: they often hold well under 100MB of data, making them poor substitutes for the expanded storage rarely included in the box. A new technology may turn this backup-only format into a complete replacement for storage cards altogether. Samsung's moviNAND embeds both an I/O interface and flash memory into a single chip, drastically improving the amount of storage that can fit into a truly small device. The Korean electronics firm announced today that it was shipping as much as 2GB of flash memory on a single chip, which is several times the capacity of current technology. A 4GB chip is also slated for release by the end of the year. No specific products were announced as using moviNAND, though these should become public shortly.
