    SanDisk have unveiled their latest Solid State Drive (SSD) which, despite being able to hold 64GB of data, is smaller than a stamp and lighter than a paperclip.

    Although it's not been released to retail yet, the chip is being produced and sent to top-tier manufacturers for sampling with a view to being included in the next generation of tablet computers and smartphones.

    Doron Myersdorf, Senior Director, SSD Marketing, from SanDisk said:

    "The new category of embedded SSDs should enable OEMs to produce tablets and notebooks with an unprecedented combination of thin, lightweight form factors and fast performance".

    Nice! SSDs will probably be a lot bigger soon, which is their biggest drawback (and price, but it's kinda related to that).
