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 Apple’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.”
