SAMSUNG’s NAND Flash Memory Supports New HP iPAQ Pocket PC Models

Seoul, Korea - July 30, 2003: SAMSUNG, the world leader in advanced semiconductor memory technology, today announced that the HP iPAQ Pocket PC h1900 and h2200 series product equipped with the Microsoft Windows Mobile 2003 software for Pocket PC will use SAMSUNG's NAND flash memory, enhancing memory capabilities to deliver a richer user experience.

"SAMSUNG's strategy is to deliver more value to the digitally connected world, and NAND flash memory used in HP's iPAQ pocket PCs is just another example of SAMSUNG delivering on it's commitment," said Ivan Greenberg, Director of Strategic Marketing at SAMSUNG Semiconductor, Inc., San Jose, Calif. "NAND flash memory's ability to enable faster application updates, fluid scalability in storage capacity and significant reduction of system bill-of-materials will usher in a new class of multimedia-rich handheld PDA's."

The memory subsystem uses NAND Flash for nonvolatile storage of operating system code, application code, and application data. Pocket PC 2003 optimizations developed by Microsoft and SAMSUNG allow the iPAQ Pocket PC to boot from NAND Flash.
The per-bit cost of NAND flash memory is significantly lower than NOR flash devices, and NAND write speeds are as much as 20 times faster than NOR while consuming only five percent of the power required by NOR. Fast write times streamline updates of user application data and enables real-time video recording applications.

In addition, the NAND flash memory supports the increasing data storage requirements of future mobile applications. SAMSUNG's time-to-market availability of higher memory densities of up to 2Gigabit components satisfy the market's demand for a growing number of wireless LAN hot spots that enable anytime, anywhere internet access. NAND's capabilities will also play an important role in handling large multi-media contents and mega-pixel camera features at VGA resolution (640 x 480) that are integrated into advanced mobile applications. The system enhancements made possible by SAMSUNG's NAND Flash enable PDA platforms to deliver more value to the end user.
