Intel 310 Series 80GB mSATA SSD ReviewAs tablets, portable media players, and even ultra-thin notebooks keep shrinking in size, so too will the components they're built around. This is where Intel's new 310 Series SSDs come into play. The 310 Series utilize the same 34nm NAND flash memory technology and controller found on the chip maker's 2.5-inch SSDs, but in a form factor just 1/8th the size. We're talking a scant 2 inches (51mm) long by 1.18 (30mm) wide and flatter than a pancake. And the best part, says Intel, is that despite its diminutive stature, you can expect performance similar to that of the company's popular X25-M 34nm SSD...

Cool device. I like the way tech keeps advancing. If it was priced right I'd like a bunch of these.

Hmm.... speaking of comments I commented on this one earlier right after realneil. However; my comment is nowhere to be seen, which is very odd.

Either way I agree totally realneil, and everyone else who has or will comment on it. I think these are awesome, and made for a smart phone or a tablet/slate device. They would seemingly replace all other memory technologies in said device, and not only give it better performance (especially with a dual or more core processor in it), more space, but also I would imagine reduce heat and energy usage if it replaced all other memory (ROM, and maybe Ram to ) technologies which I imagine it could be massaged into doing.

SO how would you like a Droid, iPhone, WebOS, or WIndows 7 phone with one, not to mention a Google, Samsung, Motorola etc Tab.

I would LOVE THAT + a nuclear reactor small enough to keep my device powered longer than 30 hours.

Also... Droid = motorola phones only i believe. You mean "Android", which is all android powered devices.

Droid = the big V's Android phones. They are not specific to make.

"Active power use: 150nW

Idle power use: 75mW"

Is anyone else confused by that?

these are awesome, i'm surprised that these aren't getting more focus. It seems the 2.5" SSDs are leveling out, and the practical use of these is immense.

It really shocks me Apple isn't help fund these, considering most of its products.
