Eli Harari, SanDisk founder, chairman and CEO, has made eight predictions about the NAND flash memory market. You can read them over here. Here's a snip:
2. ASPs do not fall as fast as before. Annual price reductions for NAND will be around 40 percent from 2010 to 2013. This compares to annual price reductions for NAND at about 60 percent from 2005 to 2009.
3. Multi-bit rules. Market embraces 3-bit-per-cell (x3) and 4-bit-per-cell (x4) in the 2009 to 2015 timeframe. Currently, 2-bit-per-cell is mainstream.
