If true, hard drives are over

A 90% drop in per bit price for SSDs puts them below hard drives, and hard drives no longer have any reason to exist. Most thought that day wouldn't come until the early to mid 2020s.

Yes, I believe its true--that HDs are obsolete--but it will be at lease next year before any of BeSang's customers are ready to ship a SSD at 2¢ a Gbyte.

Intriguing but .....

Intriguing approach. I don't normally like to nitpick but the figure you used for cell size is actually not from TechInsights but is rather from an article I wrote for 3DIncites entitled:

"Samsung's 3D V-NAND Flash Product: Ceaselessly Marching"

from Dec 9th 2015.

Obviously doesn't distract from the main message.

Sorry, Andy. That's the source that BeSang gave me. Do you have a URL for the story that I can share with others.

Yes. Here you go. Probably just an oversight:

BeSang gave me the same reference, but thought TechInsights had given you the illustration since you say "What a feast of information Techinsights has given us" in your introduction. Now you've been duly credited. Thanks.

why stalled?

A simple search shows reports on essentially the same memory cell back as far as 2009.  What have been the reasons for this approach to languish?

There is the possibility that it doesn't really work and their claims are exaggerated.
