Samsung has scored an exclusive DRAM supply deal with Nokia which should help it out during the tough times in the computer memory market.

Nokia is going to buy all its 64Mb DRAMs from Samsung. The chips will go in Nokia's Net access Communicator style phones.

Bloomberg reports that Samsung is also in talks to supply Motorola and Siemens as it is the only memory manufacturer making DRAM for mobile phones.

Bloomberg speculates that Nokia will use the DRAM to replace the more expensive - but faster and more energy efficient - static random access memory chips. Nokia is already selling phones with DRAMs modified to use less power. ®
