Toshiba announced today that its new production process had fit 64GB of RAM on a single embedded NAND flash memory module.  Samples of the 64GB module are available from today, and mass production will start in the first quarter of 2010 according to the press release.

This is significant to iPhone and iPod Touch users because it effectively allows Apple to double the storage of their current generation devices.  The iPod touch can go to 128GB while the iPhone can go to 64GB. As these chips will start to be avaiable in the next few months, perhaps Apple will jump its normal update cycle.

The new 64GB modules also may improve storage prospects for a prospective tablet too.
