Samsung makes mobile memory go zoom with new software

Chris Ziegler

If there's one thing smartphone can never be, it's too fast. Yeah, granted, mobile processors have been intentionally throttled for years in the interest of keeping battery times reasonable -- so we're always delighted to hear when someone's doing something to boost speeds in different, creative ways. That's where flash memory giant Samsung comes into play, rolling out new file systems and drivers for its OneNAND, Flex-OneNAND, and moviNAND storage solutions (none of which are pictured to the right) that it claims will slap a turbocharger on boot and access times. The new software is available for basically every major mobile operating system, and Sammy even claims that it'll decrease engineering times, so it looks like it's a win all the way around.
