SanDisk Will Benefit From Apple's Flash Roadmap

Wall Street thinks that Flash memory maker SanDisk could benefit strongly from Appleis planned use of Flash memory in new products like the iPhone, according to a story at Forbes.

Analyst Doug Freedman believes that Appleis increased orders for NAND flash memory will absorb the current oversupply and solidify prices.

"Apple is a key consumer of NAND flash (memory), which SanDisk highlighted at its recent analyst event where it stated that a flash-based video iPod could potentially consume 10 percent of fourth-quarter flash (memory) capacity," Freedman wrote in a note to investors.

Appleis likely roadmap for Flash memory was recently discussed by analyst Shaw Wu, and his view was recently reported by TMO.
