128MB Flash Memory Capacity by September?

Storage needs of consumers are increasing and both hard drives and flash memory device makers are cashing on the surge of demand. The information cited in this article have actually been covered before but there is one bit of information worth of interest.

The article says that flash memory capacity doubles in capacity every 9 months!

"Flash memory makers have been doubling capacities about every nine months, says Celeste Crystal, an analyst at market researcher IDC. They're squeezing more bits of data onto cells in their silicon chips as well as developing new ways to stack layers of cells in the same amount of space."

Based on our post last April, maybe the 128MB flash drive will be available by Christmas.
