Smartphones with 128GB internal memory coming next year

Smartphones with 128GB internal memory coming next year
With the ever growing smartphone market, comprised of the iPhone, Android and Windows Mobile devices, we have seen phones come with larger amounts of internal memory.With that said, Toshiba has announce they are about to introduce a 128GB memory chip to the Japanese market. The model THGBM2T0DBFBAIF is comprised of 16 64Gbit (8 GB) NAND chips using 32nm manufacturing process, integrating a dedicated controller and in a small form factor (17×22x1.4mm). The first samples of these 128GB chips will be avaliable in September and mass production would begin in Q4, but in the mean time Toshiba says the 64GB chip will be out in August. Even though the new iPhone 4 has a max memory of 32GB, it has been rumored that a 64GB version may be out later this year. Maybe we'll see smartphones use the 128GB chip next year...iPhone 5, Motorola DROID X2?

128 GB on a phone... might I say a quite excessive? With 128 GB storage, I want the ability to download (and actually save) every video I watch, as well as every picture I download from websites. Nobody's filling 128 GB with apps (maybe music), so might as well put it to good use and use it to load webpages faster.

Its just a matter of time before we will be able to play the latest pc games on our cell phones. People will be able to play WOW on their cell phone. And honestly, it could happen within the next couple years...or sooner.

You can fill up a 32gb smartphone with music easily. It just depends what quality of music you put on it. For example on apple smartphones, the highest data rate music it can play is .mp3. But if you were to get less compressed music like .wav or flac and put it on your phone it would take up a lot more space. But yet again you probably won't benefit from putting higher quality music on your phone if you have s**tty headphones. Perhaps if you are playing your music through car speakers, it would be worth getting the higher quality music.
