Top three mobile application threats

Samsung is now mass-producing "ultra-fast" Flash memory - the fastest of its kind, the Korean company claims - for phones and tablets.

According to Samsung, the memory shifts bits at four times the speed of the firm's previous Embedded Multimedia Card (eMMC) parts, delivering sequential read and write speeds of less than 140MB/s and 50MB/s, respectively.

Random data transfers are clocked at 3500 (read) and 1500 (write) IOPS.

The Flash comes in 64Mb (8MB) units to be hooked up to the host over a DDR 2 interface. It's fabbed at 20nm and supports the eMMC 4.5 spec.

Volume production now means the Samsung Flash will be appearing in devices any month now. iPhone 5, anyone? ®
