 CommsDesign - Examining NAND Flash Alternatives for Mobiles: Part 1   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
The second part of this article will address the most popular NAND design options that are available in the market, and their merits and challenges.
Since NAND flash does not have a standard memory interface and because it requires extensive handling to prevent errors in the stored data, it requires an additional controller (as in the case of removable memory cards).
This also means that although raw NAND flash is very convenient as a disk replacement (mechanical hard drives are also accessed in blocks of 512 bytes, and are referred to as block devices), it cannot be used to run code.

 NAND versus NOR - 10/13/2005 - EDN   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
In this model, users boot a system with NOR and use a NAND for storage (or, in rare cases, a mini hard drive for storage); the volatile memory handles all of the execution.
Samsung claims that although the NAND hybrids can replace the stand-alone NOR and OTP block in a design, their read and write speed makes them especially well-suited for advanced operating systems using demand paging, which can ultimately reduce the amount of DRAM a system requires.
He notes that Intel is in the early stages of a study indicating that NAND has an inherent flaw that makes it ill-suited for booting systems, especially in demand-paging architectures.
