Apple increased Memory Chip Purchases from Japan to lower Samsung Dependency

Supply Chain rumors say that Apple orders new more memory chips from Toshiba and Elpida Memory.

Apple and Samsung are at war over tablets and smartphones. Law suits are filed left and right around the globe. The problem for both companies is though that they are also business partners. Apple is buying a ton of components from Samsung including the A5 CPU and memory chips. A new report on Digitimes reports that Apple is trying to shift memory purchases to Japan to reduce the Samsung dependancy.

Toshiba and Elpida Memory are supposed to be the biggest beneficiaries from this. We already reported that Apple has hired TSMC to make the next Apple CPU. Touchscreens are already coming from LG and others. 

Apple started the war on Samsung. Samsung is rumored to prepare an assault on the iPhone 5 and tries to aim for a sales ban at least in Korea. At this point things could get really ugly.
