DigiTimes reports Taiwanese memory vendors PQI and A-DATA will cooperate with Intel to push co-branded solid state drives:
Kingston entered the branded SSD market in January 2009, via a similar co-branding partnership with Intel.

A-Data is expected to announce its entry in the SSD market shortly, indicated the sources, while PQI's dual-brand SSDs will likely debut by this month, the sources added. A-Data declined to comment.

PQI responded by saying that the company has outlined two marketing strategies for its upcoming SSD product line. In addition to marketing co-branded products, the company will target the white-box netbook market in China via cooperation with 3-4 local white-box netbook makers. SSDs for white-box netbooks will incorporate NAND flash controllers from CoreSolid Storage, according to the company.
