Intel to embed solid-state drives on UMPC boards

intel In a move that makes sense, perfect or otherwise, Intel has announced that it’ll soon be manufacturing UMPC-specific boards with embedded Z-P140 PATA solid-state drives.

The drives will apparently be available in 2- and 4-gigabytes and up to four drives can be embedded on a board, giving you up to 16-gigabytes to work with.

Look for the first wave of these devices in the first half of next year. Intel has also said that it’ll include drives of up to 64-gigabytes in size within a few years.
