In turn, this could mean phones that can record several hours of video, or smaller notebooks with twice or more the battery life. The NAND noise will be particularly strong at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this week in Las Vegas, with manufacturers showing off the solid-state technology as an increasingly important component in cell phones and talking up how it will find its way into notebook hard drives in 2006.
