Toshiba has reportedly agreed to supply Apple with flash memory chips that could be used in the rumored flash iPod. Yasuo Morimoto, senior executive vice president at Toshiba, said his company will begin selling the chips to Apple “early next year.”
As reported by MacMinute, Merrill Lynch analyst Steve Milunovich expects Apple to introduce a flash memory-based iPod at January’s Macworld Expo in San Francisco. Toshiba currently supplies Apple with the 1.8-inch hard drives used in the fourth-generation iPods.
