[Samsung and PalmSource agree to port Samsung NAND Flash software into Cobalt and future versions of the Palm OS.]
New Orleans -- Samsung today announced that it has reached agreement with PalmSource to work together to port Samsung NAND Flash software into the Palm OS(R) Cobalt and future releases of the Palm operating system.
The planned solutions are intended to enable ultra-fast storage of huge multimedia files while reducing the processing time of next-generation Palm Powered(TM) phones. Samsung is a partner in the Palm OS Ready (POSR) program and is applying its expertise in memory technology to lower development costs and shorten time-to-market for Palm Powered phones and other wireless devices.
Over the next several months, Samsung and PalmSource will look to incorporate Samsung's XSR Flash software into Palm OS Cobalt and future versions of the Palm operating system, enabling Palm Powered phones to support the widest range of Samsung Flash devices ranging in density from 512Mb-8Gb for NAND and 256Mb-4Gb for Samsung OneNAND(TM). The combination of Samsung's XSR Flash software, a 90nanometer OneNAND device and Palm OS would minimize the time it takes to power-on a wireless device, while enabling sub 0.5 shot-to-shot delay with camera resolutions up to six megapixels.
