I have shamelessly borrowed the headline from today's Times newspaper in the UK. It seems that Nokia is going to release new functionality on its mobile phones that enable a new memory card to be installed.
This can hold up to five full-length novels in audio-book format. Apparently up to six CDs can be needed for one audio-book. Nokia is introducing this technology in conjunction with a German publisher, S Fischer Verlage.
In March, 2005, Samsung demo'd a mobile phone with 3GB of hard drive capacity.. The Nokia phone uses a memory card and flash card capacities have been shooting up.
The Nokia card is only the start of what is going to be a rapid jump in mobile phone card capacities. Audio-book cards are only the start. Video cards must surely be coming in a year or three.
