Samsung Unveils Fusion Memory Chip

Currently, the demand for music, video, and other multimedia content in mobile applications has prompted device manufacturers to employ two separate processors, one for voice communications and another for media.

Samsung claims that the OneDRAM device, which channels processing traffic between communications and media functions, results in a five-fold increase in speed. In addition, the chip reportedly cuts power consumption by some 30 percent, meaning longer battery life for mobile devices.

The new chip is noteworthy, said IDC analyst Sean Ryan, given that manufacturers continue to pack more features into their small-scale products.

I think the next 2-5 years are going to be HUGE for mobile devices. I think we are on the verge of so many technologies, services, public acceptance, etc... all coming together to start to offer some truly wondrous possibilities.
