Apple is reported seeking quotations from memory maker Hynix Semiconductor for low-density NAND flash, due to high iPod demand, notes DigiTimes, citing research firm In Spectrum. “In line with the increased output, contract prices for November for low-density flash have started to decline, InSpectrum noted. Samsung and Toshiba are Appleā€™s main NAND flash chip suppliers, but sources indicated that with Toshiba needing to fulfill strong demand from SanDisk, Apple is planning to shift to Hynix for low-density (1Gbit and 512Mbit) parts for the iPod Shuffle.”
