Intel Previews Potential Replacement for Flash

eWeek reports: "Intel literally has, in hand, the first prototype of a new type of nonvolatile memory chip that its executives think could someday supplant flash memory and thus change the face of the industries such as cellular phones, music players and possibly even PCs."

Basically the PCM technology can be used as a type of non-volatile NAND (storage) or NOR (code execution) Flash memory replacement. Hopefully this will open up new applications for USB Flash drives, and other technologies...
