Micron 256 GB SSD Out 2009

The battle of the SSD‘s (Solid State Drives) continue with Micron announcing that it plans to release a 256GB SSD early next year.

In true ‘mines bigger than yours’ form Micron claims that its 256GB SSD can read data at 250MBps compared to Samsung’s 220 Mbps.  They obviously ignored the fact that Samsung’s can write faster, 200MBps to Micro’s 100 MBps.  😉

Ok, so it’s not really edge of your seat stuff but I can’t wait for the day when version 4 or 5 of the iPhone is loaded with 256GB of space to play around with.

Forget about apps and audio – think about packing HD films in your pocket and then playing them via a tiny projector……..
