128GB Smartphones Coming Later This Year?

Toshiba has recently revealed a 19 nanometer NAND flash memory which leads to some very promising results in the wireless industry. Such a small chip would lead to a high capacity smartphone or tablet. The ultra small size allows 16 chips to be stacked one upon the other, at 8GB per chip and two bits per cell. If you do the math, 8GB multiplied by 16 equals 128GB.

This technology can even lead to three-bits-per cell stacking for future developments. Even though the technology is brand new, it is already being handed out to companies through test samples…

IEEE Approves WiMax-2 Blazing Speeds

According to PCWorld, The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers has approved IEEE 802.16m, the next generation of WiMax. Expected speeds of this new technology are greater than 300M bits per second. If you’re unfamiliar with WiMax technology, the term stands for Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access and is a telecommunications protocol that provides both fixed and mobile Internet access.

The current revision provides up to 40M bits per second. The IEEE 802.16m is also termed WirelessMAN-Advanced or WiMax-2. It has been reported that the new standard was…
