Samsung has announced that it's now shipping samples of its high-capacity moviNAND embedded flash memory solution, which it says will eliminate the need for for an external memory card slot in some mobile devices, namely cellphones, or give 'em a bit of extra breathing room when used in conjunction with memory cards. The system, currently available in 1GB and 2GB varieties, consists of some NAND flash memory, a multimedia card (MMC) controller, and onboard firmware, with transfer speeds promised to clock in at a speedy 52 megabytes per second. Mass production of the 1GB and 2GB moviNANDs is set to begin later this month, with 512MB and 4GB models rounding out the line-up by the end of the year.
