Toshiba has announced it has created the world's first 64GB NAND chips, building on the 32GB NAND packages it launched in the spring this year.
And why does this matter, we hear you cry? Toshiba is the company that provided the chips for Apple's iPhone 3G S this year, allowing the handset to expand its storage to 32GB.
Could this mean, therefore, that with the launch of this new chip, we have a 64GB iPhone to look forward to next year? We've already heard rumours that the 4th gen iPhone is in the works, and a memory boost seems like a more than logical progression.
Tosh has said mass production of the chips will begin in January, and it will of course be able to be used in other phones, netbooks and digital cameras. This means that either way, we can expect more storage to come to our portable devices next year – here's hoping the iPhone is one of them.
That said, do you think you need 64GB of storage on your phone? Let us know what you reckon below.
