WD hit by flash demand

Posted on Wednesday, October 20 2010 @ 16:22:06 CEST by

Western Digital CEO John Coyne admitted to investors that flash memory is eating into the company's growth as new products like tablets increasingly use solid state storage instead of a hard disk:
Chief Executive John Coyne said tablets such as Apple's (AAPL.O) iPad -- which use flash memory rather than hard-drive storage -- will reduce growth in shipments of low-end laptops and netbooks by 10 to 20 percent over the next few quarters.

"What I would say to investors is to look at the long-term demand for storage, the fact is the most appropriate solution for mass volume storage is hard drives and to look at the long-term progress the industry has made over the last 10 years," Coyne told analysts on a conference call.
