Samsung introduces 128GB memory card

The company claims the mega-memory card is capable of storing 32,000 MP3 files.

No, that's not a typo.

The current reigning king of flash memory pushes the envelope for NAND flash a little further with a 64Gb (gigabit) memory chip. Put 16 of them together and it amounts to 128GB (gigabytes), which is enough to put some hard drives to shame. Samsung claims the mega-memory card is capable of storing 32,000 MP3 files.

It's built with a new manufacturing process that Samsung dubs the self-aligned double patterning technology (SaDPT), which must be pretty heavy stuff because the company has applied for 30 patents in connection with the new 64Gb flash device. But don't expect this drugged-up memory card to power the new toys you get for Christmas. Samsung is expecting production to commence only in 2009.
