When the iPhone first launched it came in two flavors: 4GB and 8GB. It's almost hard to imagine cramming today's movies, music and pictures onto a drive so tiny. Now it's up to 16GB and 32GB, but that still sounds on the smallish side. Hey, how about 128GB?
Toshiba is calling it the "highest capacity yet achieved in the industry," and its new 128GB NAND flash memory modules could find their ways into phones, tablets, cameras and more as early as the end of this year. That not only means that you'd be able to carry more if you bought a gadget containing one, but it'll also drive down the prices on smaller modules.
Toshiba is also planning to bring out updated 64GB modules to the market around the same time. Maybe this is the next step toward those 256GB chips Toshiba says is coming.
