Add Hard Drives To Mobile Devices With MMC

The MMC Association has announced a new standard to allow MMC controller hardware to interface with tiny hard drives. The ATA on MMC Specification allows companies to use the MMC bus and controllers, which are already built into many mobile chipsets, in order to run a small form factor hard drive. This move will make it faster and less expensive to add hard drive storage to mobile devices, including cell phones. It also could reduce the potential size of hard drive enabled devices by eliminating the need for a separate hard drive controller, however hard drives already add additional bulk to devices.

What is this for

I work at bestbuy, in the cell department, and all... Hard Drive hmmm... So that means like a 1 gb hard drive, so I can store like 200 mp3 songs on it... They should just make them flash drives, that would be better... Can you imagine, oh my phone skips... haha... That is craziness... Oh this phone is great but it will skip when you do this, but this phone wont... I'm confused, LOVE THE IDEA!! I got the Sanyo 5600 and love how I got tons of songs on there... Kinda makes more sense to use just memory cards but it's also good that way too so you can have more ringer on it cause they all block from having ringers from the memory card... I hate that feauture, wish there was a way to get past that, so I can have a ringer for each person, what can...
And now that I read this.. MMC... Micro Media card... I assume... Hmm... I'm dumb... haha ignore this!!
