Samsung unveiled some of the new products it will announce at CES 2008 in Las Vegas. One of the cool new products is a 1.3" HDD for mobile consumer devices.
This might not be Samsung's flagship product for CES, but the product is an interesting choice, given that Samsung is also among the world leaders in NAND flash memory -- the preferred storage medium in devices like the iPod nano. Samsung also says that its 32 Gbit NAND devices will enter mass production soon. On the solid-state-disk front, Samsung says improvements in the technology will make it twice as fast as previous models, and that the company will migrate to a combination single-layer-cell/multi-layer-cell technology in 2008 (by placing more layers in cells, the amount of storage in a given area can be increased -- simply put, that means more storage for an MP3 in the same form factor).
Other upcoming Samsung products: 1TB RAID Edition HDDs, 320GB notebook HDDs, TruDirect disk burners that don't need a HDD anymore, touchscreen LCDs and a couple of HDTV technologies like Motion Picture FRame Interpolation and Local Dimming LED technology which will boost contrast ratio.
