Toshiba has just announced a new addition to its 24 nm NAND flash product family – the SmartNAND. Designed for portable devices such as media players, tablets and phones, the NAND flash chips are meant to make life easier for the host processor while minimizing protocol changes and are also used to store data. Manufacturers are constantly on the lookout for new products that can fit more memory into the same or smaller size than their current products, so a 64GB SmartNAND would potentially see a lot of use in future devices, With these SmartNAND chips on the market, it wouldn’t be surprising to see a 64GB iPhone in the future. The new Toshiba SmartNAND chips will be available in August.
