Ooh, a 256GB SSD from Micron is on the way


Another manufacturer has thrown its hat into the ever expanding, fantastically dull realm of solid state drive development. This time it’s Micron, which today announced that it plans to release a 256GB SSD early next year.

And just to keep things interesting, Micron claims, while puffing its chest out and standing on its tippy toes, that its 256GB SSD can read data at 250MBps, to Samsung’s measly 220 Mbps. (But Samsung’s can write faster, 200MBps to Micro’s 100 MBps.)

Can you imagine an iPhone, or other trendy consumer device, with 256GB of space to play around with. Think of all the Blu-ray rips you could fit on that.
