The Future of Flash Memory on Mobile Phones
However, the article also says that like the Ask-Leo article above, it seems that limitations on how many writes and reads of files you can do on a NAND is one of its biggest technical obstacles.
"Once NOR's capacity exceeds 512MB, taking smart phones with outstanding performance for instance, manufacturers prefer to adopt NAND because NOR has a much higher cost and a relatively big-sized body."
"Concerning stability, there are hidden troubles such as bit-flipping, bad blocks and limited life in NAND. In addition, NAND adopts a non-standard interface and needs software management, which increases the cost of the system."
