Samsung boost internal memory storage to 4GB

Samsung is no stranger to flash memory technology and the company has announced numerous advances over the past year. Today, the company announced that it has developed a new 4GB multi-chip package (MCP) destined for mobile phones.

"We’ve now perfected a memory chip that allows handset manufacturers to significantly reduce development time while deploying an extremely robust design that will result in higher performance for smaller phones, with higher storage capacities," said Samsung's Jim Elliott.

Since its hip to put a brand on new products, Samsung call its new chip package "moviMCP" and the NAND flash memory included within the package is referred to as "moviNAND".

The moviMCP uses an eMMC interface which allows easy integration into mobile phone platforms. Also, Samsung reckons that mobile phone manufacturers can save money and complexity by not including an external SD, miniSD or microSD slot for memory expansion due to the inclusion of 4GB of storage onboard.

Samsung is currently sampling its moviNAND and expects to ship 392 million units by the end of the year.

Or they can keep the greater internal memory capacity and where the SD, MiniSD, etc reader, they can put an 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless connection and provide firmware that will allow you to easily transfer all your data from one phone to the other.

Not only that, you would have tons of new features that can be implemented onto the phone. Ability to surf the web in hotspots, instead of having to pay to use their whatever cellphone service (mine uses iMode - NTT Docomo phone).

Transfer pictures, music, etc with friends with ease.

Wirelessly connect to other devices, maybe even provide cool features. Like connecting to your PS3/Xbox 360 and pulling down small cellphone games, that can be sold on their respective marketplaces.

LocationFree TV. Anything you can think of. Hell of a lot better than just having a memory card slot of some kind.
