Not strange no PCM phones yet. Consuming more energy in shorter time means higher power consumption.

Mid-Nov 2012, no PCM shipped to Nokia, but Asha 311 released already Aug 2012? From 11-15-2012: "Bader said that Micron will ship tens of millions of units of 1-Gbit PCM in 2012 in 45-nm process in its leading-edge component, which combines a 1-Gbit PCM die with a 512-Mbit SDRAM and provides a LPDDR2 interface."

Going from 90 nm to 45 nm endurance went from 1 million cycles to 100 K cycles. Not good.

DRAM backup? Necessary? Why not direct access?

Thanks for the link. Only 90 nm 128 Mb available. Any 45 nm Gb must be sampling.

If it is used merely as bootup ROM, worth a laugh.

Hmm, Nokia must be out of their mind - paying their hard earned (and shall we say - scarce) cash for a technology that according to many forum-posters' (no less important and knowledeable people than that!) perceptions of strangeness :) /end sarcasm
