Samsung announces 32GB flash drive
Samsung has announced a 32GB flash-based solid state disk (SSD) that ships in the same 1.8" form factor as drives found in iPods and other portable devices. The SSD reportedly offers twice the transfers speeds of the fastest 1.8" hard drives, while drawing up to 95% less power. Samsung doesn't mention a release date, but it does claim that the 32GB drives will be shipping "soon." No prices are given, either, although the drives will likely be too expensive for consumer devices at first. TG Daily speculates that even after factoring in expected drops in flash prices, Samsung's SSD may still cost between $750 and $1,000.
