Apple Inhaling Flash Memory a Sign of the Next iPhone
Although there isn't really any doubt that there is a new iPhone
on its way for Summer 2009 it's always fun to have repeated confirmation. According to a ThinkEquity Partners report concerning the market of flash memory Apple is grabbing up massive quantities of flash memory leaving the market dry. Even companies like SanDisk which don't even supply Apple with memory are feeling the effects of Apple's buying Spree.
There may even be a lack of worldwide flash supply with Apple's aggressive purchasing. Samsung, the largest producer of flash memory in the world with 40% of world production, is completely sold out of flash memory through April 2009. All memory that Samsung makes until then goes straight to Apple. Can't wait till June and hopefully a 32 GB iPhone.
