I think, this is no problmen, because in some days I will  get  the  new
2 GBit and 4 GBit DDR2 from Micron.  It is woking  for  the  Armada  300
(2000MHz) but I do not know, with your Samsung µC.  With  the  MLC  NAND
Flash I have to wait because the 256 Gbit are not available currently.

I get them from my distributor as samples but I have no prices yet.

In general, the whole thing (µC, NAND, DDR2, microSDHC, PMIC)  will  fit
without any problems on one SO-DIMM.

However, the OMAP 3530 for example support up to 3 SD cards  and  I  use
already three microSDHC with 32 GByte each.

Maybe a Disadvantage:
    You have to put them on the bottom side of the SO-DIMM and there
    is no space left between the PCB and the SO-DIMM.  But there  is
    enough space on a SO-DIMM to put µC, DDR and PMIC on the top and
    3 microSD holder on the bottom.

I was thinking on this too...
