Mobilemag confirms the rumours that Apple will launch a 2GB iPod shuffle in June and a 4GB version by August. Currently Apple only ships 512MB and 1GB versions of the iPod shuffle, which uses NAND flash memory instead of a hard disk.
Samsung today released its 4Gbit NAND flash. These memory devices are made on a 70nm process and offer a 50 percent performance boost over their 90nm 2Gbit predecessors. Samsung says its 4Gbit NAND flash features a write speed of 16MB/s, allowing real-time storage of high-definition video images.
Toshiba released its 4Gbit NAND flash memory earlier this year and will just like Samsung start producing 8Gb NAND flash memory devices this summer.
