Samsung has started shipping samples of what is promises is one of the fastest mobile memory chips available.
The Korean company is using its 30nm process to make 8 gigabit (1GB) NAND chips which are less dense, but faster than previous offerings. Samsung says the chips have gone from 17MB per second to around 70 thanks to company's single-level cell technology.
Test samples are already winging their way to as-yet un-named OEMs, but Apple is known to favour Samsung silicon in its mobile devices and we wouldn't be overly surprised to find these nestling in the forthcoming - but not very secret any more - iPhone G4.
Full production will begin by the end of the month. Again, just in time for the G4s June launch if all the tittle-tattle is to be believed.
