Samsung introduces solid state notebook drive

Korean giant Samsung said it started selling a 32GB NAND flash hard drive.

The unit, claims Samsung, is half the weight of a conventional hard drive, has reduced power consumption because it has no moving parts.

It will read data three times faster and write data 1.5 faster than mechanical drives, said Samsung. It also uses five per cent of the electricity a conventional drive uses. Samsung gave no pricing details for the unit, and reckons the solid state drive business will be worth $ 4.5 billion by 2010.
