Samsung unveiled a new, high-capacity solid state drive Monday at the fifth annual Samsung Mobile Solution Forum in Taipei. The 2.5-inch, 256 gigabyte, multi-level cell-based SSD uses a SATA II interface, and it's the world's fastest SSD, according to the company. In addition, Samsung said its new SSD is the thinnest drive with the largest capacity offering a SATA II interface. Samsung expects to begin production of the 2.5-inch SSD by the end of 2008 but will make customer samples available in September.
I just submitted a post to an article about subnotebooks. Here is what I've been waiting for. Samsung's announcement means we'll be seeing laptops (I prefer the larger keyboard) in 2009, hopefully, with no HDD. No more worrying about crashing a drive. Could you imagine the cost of a laptop with accelerometers to sense movement and park the heads of the HDD? Actually, Nintendo did.
