iPhone shipments are expected to reach 40 million units while NAND Flash consumption will account for nine percent of the total.
It said iPad shipment will likely be 1.7 million units while 7M-8M units will be targeted for 2010. Meanwhile, NAND Flash consumption of iPad will account around 3percent of total NAND Flash consumption. The company also said iPhone shipment is expected to reach 40M units while NAND Flash consumption will account to 9 percent of the total.
“Since new consumer electronics products such as iPod and iPhone always turn the market with strong shipment momentum, NAND Flash demand will be largely impacted,” it continued.
