Comments on: New Batteries, SDRAM in the Works

Yesterday, companies made announcements of new batteries and SDRAM that might go into future Palm Powered models.

Toshiba publicly displayed its new rechargable Advanced Lithium Batteries (ALB) for the first time. Combining the flexibility of Lithium polymer technology (PLB) with the high energy density of traditional Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries, ALBs can be as thin as 1 mm. They also decrease battery swelling to less than 0.1 mm. ALBs cost about 20% more than Li-ion batteries but slightly less than PLB ones.

This month's issue of Popular Science has an article on a new RAM form: magnetic RAM. Instead of storing bits in volitile memory, bits are stored magneticly, meaning there's no need for a constant power supply to maintain the bits. Think hard-drive RAM. It's also supposed to be smaller & cheaper than SDRAM. So, think instant-on PC's & handhelds that don't dump your data when the batteries die.
I'd say that makes both of these "new" chips old news.
