Samsung today said they’d developed the world’s first 2GB memory card for mobile phones. This comes only three months after they’d developed a similar card in the 1GB range.
These new 2GB MultiMediaCard (MMCmicro) cards, said Samsung, combine four 4Gbit NAND flash devices. The card is the size of a fingernail and will reportedly provide transmission speeds at rates 3.5 times faster than other cards. The card can store 12 hours of mobile video and is reportedly fast enough to download three hours of video in under two minutes. An adapter allows the card to be plugged into any multimedia card slot.
“The 2GByte high-performance MMC is a powerful indicator of Samsung’s expanding efforts to embrace the widest possible range of multimedia applications including mobile video,” said Don Barnetson, Director, Flash Marketing, Samsung Semiconductor, Inc, in a statement.
