SanDisk has presented iNAND, a small easy integrated higspeed flash storage device that is available in capacities and price points that make it an attractive alternative to micro hard drives for devices like digital audio players, GPS devices, PDAs and cell phones. The iNAND will comee in capacities from 256MB to 4GB and will feature SanDisk's new DRM TrustedFlash technology.
"In addition, solid-state flash memory has many other advantages over rotating mechanical hard drives that include high performance, much lower power consumption, increased durability (no track skipping) and significantly smaller size and weight. SanDisk iNAND also offers increased design flexibility since it is designed to work seamlessly in conjunction with a removable card slot. iNAND also incorporates for the first time SanDisk's new TrustedFlash technology, assuring the same level of content security for embedded stored data that is available on TrustedFlash cards."
SanDisk iNAND will be available in capacities ranging from 256MB to 4GB. Product samples are available now with production scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2005. Pricing for 2GB iNAND devices is $95 in 10,000-lot quantities.
