Apple iPad seen to Cause NAND Flash Shortage

The Apple iPad will launch later this month (rumored iPad launch is March 26th) and most expect spectacular sales. Digitimes has a new report about the fear of hard-drive makers that Apple is about to cause another NAND shortage with the iPad.

Apple already uses 1/3 of the total NAND flash production. The report implies that Apple is the cause for the slow SSD adoption in PCs. If NAND flash would be readily available at lower prices SSD would faster become the standard storage technology in PCs and notebooks.

The industry sources predict another rise in NAND flash prices in 2010. It is not Apple's fault. It is in your hands. Do you want an iPad or rather low cost SSDs?
