SanDisk iSSD World's Smallest Solid State Drive upto 64GBSanDisk iSSD Smallest Solid State Drive Embeddable for OEMs, upto 64GB

SanDisk the leading researcher & manufacturer of Flash Memory, launched a completely new catagory of product. Last week SanDisk announced integrated Solid State Drives [iSSD] in Flash Memory Summit, California. These Embeddable Solid State Drives are stamp sized compact, thin, light weight and deliver high performance. iSSD is currently available upto 64GB. This product is aimed at Thin Tablet PCs, Mobile Phones, Notebooks, Netbooks and other portable devices.

All the computing devices & mobile phones are getting physically thinner and lighter by consumers' demand. The Solid State Drives were the great alternatives of conventional bulky Hard Disk Drives [HDD]. But Solid State Drives are very expensive and we need another alternate.

SanDisk iSSD is currently available to OEMs for sampling. The pricing is depenedent on the quantity and capacity ranging from 4GB to 64GB.

I think these integrated solid state drives will be widely adopted by OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturer) and we will be seeing ultra light weight and compact devices in the market. What do you think?

Apparently solid state memory storage devices are gaining popularity, because of its high speed operation capability and smaller size. However its would be to soon to say that it will overtake the market of Magnetic disk drives. The reason is clear, that solid state devices are very costly to manufacture(even a single lithographic mask set to create its logic costs millions of dollar). It is because of demand neither we can not even assume the actual manufacturing cost of making only a single prototype. Thanks to its massive mass production that even simple people can also use these things. But I think for atleast next 5 years we need to rely on magnetic disk drives for data storage. However for portable devices these iSSD's are very good option.

Thanks for the comment and the info.
I think if iSSD gives better performance with cheap price, we are not going to use the expensive Solid State Drives. Let's See what happens?
