According to a Japanese website, Samsung has stated that they are making NAND Flash Memory for the PSP2. In addition, Samsung claims SCEI wants to use Samsung Flash memory hard disk drives instead of a UMD Player in the new PSP.
According to market sources, Sony plans to release a version of its PSP (PlayStation Portable) using NAND flash from Samsung Electronics in the second half of this year.
The PSP will feature 8GB of NAND flash, the sources stated.
Although recent reports stated that Sony would opt not to use NAND flash in the next version of its PSP, and would instead use a microdrive, the sources indicated that Sony was stalling to negotiate better pricing from Samsung.
