Nokia, Sony, others push new memory standard

Nokia memory standard

Nokia, Samsung and Sony Ericsson are among a group of companies backing a new memory standard. Called Universal Flash Storage, it would apply to both internal and removable memory; in the case of the latter, it would theoretically eliminate the need for adapters bridging different card sizes, such as SD and microSD. The group is also working towards dramtically improving power consumption and data density, as well as access times. As an example of its goal, the group says that while it can currently take three minutes to copy a 90-minute HD video, this time could be shrunk to seconds with UFS.

In keeping with the "universal" moniker, the group hopes that UFS will be used in cellphones, cameras and many other pieces of consumer-level electronics. This hardware will not be appearing soon however, as the standard should only be finalized in 2009.
