Samsung Introduces The Card Phone II

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd today launched the SGH-P310 to the world. Following the success of the popular SGH-P300, better known as the ‘Card Phone’, the SGH-P310 comes with a newly designed exterior and revamped features as the ‘Card Phone II’.

Samsung’s P310 offers portability with its slim and wide form factor. Designers and engineers managed to trim the Card Phone II to 8.5mm in thickness. The P310 shed the P300’s retro look and wrapped itself in an elegant black color. Resembling a simple and clean credit card, the P310’s modern design is sure to attract the fashion-conscious and working professionals.

Hidden underneath the slim design are assortments of advanced features. The 2 megapixel camera managed to fit in with the music player and video player. The phone stores and saves your favorite tunes on the embedded 80MB memory and in the available external memory slot. It also offers Bluetooth connectivity. Users can navigate their way around on the large 1.9" 262K QVGA color screen using a new touch sensor soft key. An included case provides extended battery life to power the P310.

The SGH-P310 will be launched to the European market in late September, followed by the Southeast Asian market in later October.

Micron Introduces Next-Generation Networking Memory

Micron Technology, Inc. introduced the next-generation of its reduced latency DRAM (RLDRAM) II memory to meet the growing bandwidth requirements of today’s popular networking applications that send voice, video and data – known as the triple play of communications services – across the Internet.

Micron has increased the density of its RLDRAM II networking products from 288 Mb to 576 Mb and upped the speed from 400 MHz to 533 MHz, while reducing the latency from 20 nanoseconds to 15 nanoseconds. Networking companies are rolling out next-generation networking systems, increasing their network speeds to 10 Gigabits per second from 3 Gbps. To meet these increased speeds, it is imperative that the memory technology also support additional features such as triple play services, quality of services (QoS), information multicasting, as well as traffic policing and security. These advanced services need the bandwidth and scalability to support huge numbers of information being pushed across the networks, as well as lower latency, and increased performance. RLDRAM memory is part of the solution to meet these exceedingly stringent market demands.

Micron is currently sampling to select customers with mass production expected in the first quarter of 2007.
