Appears I was wrong about the news? (perhaps I missread or skipped over something...)

That would actually be pointless. There are already enough ways to get extra storage space for the 360 so there is no need to go through all that just to get a few extra GBs of storage
Actually, you didn't read what I wrote very carefully, I wasn't referring to 'getting a few extra gigs of storage-space' I was referring to the Nand, (and/or internal MU) which is quite different to HDD storage and can be used for other applications due to the higher access speeds and applications that can only be run well/properly/without mounting other drives/at-all from the NAND. Not to mention other applications based on making the HW smaller/shock-proof/ruggedised/run on smaller PSU for mobile applications etc..
Once the 720 is announced, we will start looking at a broader range of applications (we have started already) some may even in include stuff like robotics (given the open-source libs and kinect etc..) Some of our guys are already into doing solid-state stuff and car installs etc.. we even did one running off a back-pack with solar power mini tft screen etc and walked around with it at a gaming/comic convention as a quiet promo, Modern HDD's (now in shortage) have moving parts etc and tend to die quickly (or at least get higher error-rates) when exposed to bumps etc.,.
That's just some of the applications (without getting into storage, which can be of benefit also) It's not the size, it's how you use it ;-)
