SanDisk stuffs 64GB into postage stamp sized drive

by Gareth Mankoo

SanDisk have a few tricks up their sleeve that manage to add coolness to compactness and fill both with abundance. That’s pretty much what sums up the 64GB Solid State Drive (SSD) that rolls out to make it to your tablet PCs and smartphones shortly. Called the iSSD (integrate SSD), this little drive manages to stuff up all that capacity into a body that measures as much as a postage stamp. Doron Myersdorf, senior director of SSD marketing, Sandisk said, “The new category of embedded SSDs should enable OEMs to produce tablets and notebooks with an unprecedented combination of thin, lightweight form factors and fast performance”,

As of now the SanDisk iSSD is only available for sampling to OEMs. It’s yet to be evaluated by top-tier manufacturers. SanDisk say that they’re already at it.
