IBM reports advances in new memory technology

"The technology is called phase-change memory, or PCM, which is seen as an alternative to flash. Flash has proved popular for use in mobile devices but is considered to have limitations, such as in high-end business infrastructure. IBM on Thursday said it has developed a PCM chip that effectively can double a device's memory capacity--in comparison to other PCM chips--while maintaining a low error rate. PCM chips can experience problems the longer the data are stored..."

Flash Videos on Android Not Very Good

Regardless of the poor flash video performance on Android, it's still better to have compatibility than nothing at all. So how about them Apples?

Skyfire 2.0 for Android (Beta)

Intel, Micron Intro 25nm NAND Flash Production

2010 will go down as the year flash storage goes mainstream. Intel-Micron Flash Technologies -- a Lehi, Utah-based joint venture from the two companies that's been sharing technology and flash production since 2005 -- has unveiled its 25 nanometer flash production process. And the impact on consumer products will be immediately noticeable as the flash makes its way to products.

NAND Flash shortage coming

Taiwan memory module makers in a panic

Memory manufacturers are at panic stations after news has been building of a NAND Flash memory shortage.

Digitimes reports that memory module houses are moving to diversify their NAND flash suppliers to minimise procurement risk. The shortage has been caused by major chip producers Samsung, Toshiba, Micron and Hynix allocating huge amounts of NAND flash for lucrative Apple devices.

Flash 10.1 coming to just about every platform but iPhone

Adobe will move to a unified Flash Player platform with version 10.1 starting later this year. It will run on most major smartphone platforms in addition to netbooks, laptops, and desktops, giving developers a single runtime to target. However, Apple's iPhone still remains a Flash-free zone.
