Well, yeah, great, low power memory, whoohoo, extra hoo.

but 80% of a phone's battery is used in screen lighting and radio transmision power, so either the batteries themselves have to become hundreds of times more effecient, or the screens less bright, or the radio's less powerful. (the last one is a posibility as carriers transion from tower-based infrastructure to microcellular networks)

Sounds more like a memory breakthrough than a battery breakthrough...

Yep, you beat me to saying it. I was opening the artice expecting to learn about new battery enginerring. Nope, it was memory engineering and although its still cool to learn about, it has nothing to do with the battery itself.

Agreed.

To MPC: did the guy who writes the headlines read this story?

Paul Lilly doesn't actually write any of his stories.  He links to other peoples' work and somehow gets paid for his submissions.  I am convinced that if he were not "writing", he'd make his money walking into a busy street to get hit by cars and then sue the drivers.
