Super Talent Releases Tablet-Sized mSATA SSD

Tablet PCs are clearly the next big thing when it comes to mobility, and while quite a few on the market already use Flash storage, having a few tablet-sized SSDs would certainly be a boon to the industry. SuperTalent has been producing SSDs for some time now, and just this week they announced a new mSATA interface SSD that conforms to new JEDEC MO-300V standard.

The recent proliferation of netbook and tablet designs has created the need for a standard to enable easy and efficient integration possibilities. The mSATA JEDED standard MO-300B is one such standard. It is a SATAII interface SSD using a mini PCIe formfactor. This full sized mSATA, supports SATA-II, 3.0Gb/s speeds and measures a mere 50.80mm x 29.85mm x 4.85mm, and this new embedded interface supports capacities ranging from 16GB to 256GB. There's no sign of a price tag or release date, but hopefully they'll be out in next quarter's tablets for a pittance. We kind of doubt it, but we're still holding out hope!
