    At the Oracle OpenWorld 2007 event in San Francisco, California storage manufacturer BiTMICRO has announced its plan to introduce the E-Disk Altima 4Gbit Fibre Channel flash SSD. Aimed at the enterprise market, the E-Disk Altima E3F4FL flash SSD is designed to deliver high-bandwidth storage performance and offer transfer speeds of up to 230MB/s. The Altima drives use single level cell (SLC) NAND flash memory chips and can be equipped with up to 1.6TB worth of flash storage space. The sampling of Altima 4Gbit SSDs will start in Q1 2008 with volume shipment being planned for the second quarter of 2008. The drives are set to arrive in capacities ranging from 16GB to 1.6TB. Prices of the new drives have not been announced.

    I'll take 4, two raids one for the operating system and one for my storage ;P
    To go with my dual OLED 30" displays (I'll settle for ones that are 1/3" thick).

    obviously there is now a huge difference in the storage campacity of these little flash drives but who really needs to have all of that space to carry around with them?...Not normal

    I think this would be best fit for limited storage space (literally space, military, etc). Also I think the laptop market would benefit from this as well.
