Samsung's new chip doubles storage capacity

Samsung today unveiled a new NAND flash technology that combines 16 individual chips to produce a card with a total capacity of 32GB. This new technology has obvious implications for the next generation of high-end phones; a 32GB chip could store roughly 8,000 song files or hundreds of hours of video. Samsung expects to mass produce the chip in late 2006, but no OEM's have yet signed up yet.
