Apple can't release a flash-based iPod video yet

Posted on Monday, June 11 2007 @ 08:15:39 CEST by

Researchers say Apple is planning to release an iPod video with flash-memory instead of a small hard drive but that it may need to delay the release because of pricing concerns or that the device will have less memory:
Some memory module makers in Taiwan are saying that over the third quarter Apple has placed monthly orders for about 20 million units (in 1Gbit equivalent units) of NAND flash, a quantity that suggests that Apple is planning for additional demand, and which the module makes are attributing to the flash-based iPod video.

However based on recent price trends, one flash-related sales manager at a Taiwan memory module house believes that Apple may need to postpone its launch plans for the NAND flash-based iPod video beyond the third quarter as the product would not be competitive.

Another flash-related sales director at a leading overseas memory-module house, on the other hand, noted that Apple should be able to meet its launch schedule, but may opt to introduce the device with a lower storage capacity that the current HDD version.
