Samsung NAND Flash software to be used in Palm Powered smartphones
Posted on 16-Mar-2005 08:27 | Tags Filed under: News



Samsung Electronics Co. will work with PalmSource to port the Samsung NAND Flash software into the Palm OS Cobalt and future releases of the Palm operating system.

The planned solutions are intended to enable ultra-fast storage of large multimedia files while reducing the processing time of next-generation Palm Powered phones.

Devices using NOR memory limit the handset's ability to accommodate multimedia mobile applications such as still photography, digital video, games, and Internet access and storage.

Over the next several months, Samsung and PalmSource will look to incorporate Samsung's XSR Flash software into Palm OS Cobalt and future versions of the Palm operating system, enabling Palm Powered phones to support the range of Samsung Flash devices ranging in density from 512Mb-8Gb for NAND and 256Mb-4Gb for Samsung OneNAND.

According to Samsung, the combination of Samsung's XSR Flash software, a 90nanometer OneNAND device and Palm OS would minimize the time it takes to power-on a wireless device, while enabling sub 0.5 shot-to-shot delay with camera resolutions up to six megapixels.
