Default Samsung to Boost Performance of Flash Memory in Smartphones

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.phonescoop.com/news/item.php?n=3273' target='_blank'>http://www.phonescoop.com/news/item.php?n=3273</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Samsung recently announced new software that will greatly improve the way its flash memory behaves in smartphones running the Windows Mobile, Symbian, Linux and RTOS platforms. The software makes communication between the memory chips and the phone's operating system more efficient. It also has an improved file system. These two improvements combined should result in fast boot times and faster downloading to memory and searching memory. Samsung did not indicate exactly when this new software will be available."</em></p><p><br /><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/zt/auto/1219090905.usr8.jpg" border="0" /></p><p><br />This is pretty cool news. Way to go Samsung! Who wouldn't love faster RAM without upgrading their hardware? I know I would. It is unclear if this software will be released to the masses or just released to manufacturers but we will keep you guys (and girls) updated on any progress we hear, just in case.</p>

It's not about faster RAM. RAM is used for running programs.

It's about NAND Flash, which is only used for file storage, such as applications, app data, movies and boot code.

Their new file managers optimize reading and writing.
