Samsung has just announced a new 64GB memory moviNAND that could be used in the next-gen iPhone, which is rumored to be out this summer, as with Apple’s usual iPhone release time.
The chip measures 1.4mm in height and it’s composed of 16 30nm-class 32Gb MLC NAND chip and a controller. It’s expected that we might see this new chip, as each new iPhone is shown a bigger size is released so 64GB could be on the table for the iPhone 4G.
Toshiba, meanwhile announced the upcoming release of 64GB NAND chip, so it might be either Samsung or Toshiba.
One of the many features user’s wanted in the iPhone OS 3.0 Update, was Video Recording Functionality, but Apple did not deliver this. They didn’t specify why at the event but Kevin Rose, on the live episode (Episode 194) of Diggnation stated that according to his sources, who were right before, said that the reason Video Recording was not included was due to the NAND memory and technical issues. Being that writing to NAND memory too many times or too fast will mess it up, as Kevin Rose said on the show.
This rises a question to me, if you’ve jailbroken your phone, like myself and are using Cycorder or one of the other video app’s for iPhone, does this mean we could be damaging our phones. It’s made me think, weather of not I should use it again as if someone inside Apple said techinical problems are holding it back, do I want to mess up my iPhone?
