Toshiba and SanDisk temporarily slash NAND Flash production by 30% in Yokkaichi

Darren Murph

Despite the fact that folks will still be snapping up digital cameras, DAPs / PMPs and additional storage this holiday season, SanDisk and Toshiba don't see demand being anywhere near optimal. The pair, which are linked via a joint venture production plant in Yokkaichi, Japan, have decided it best to temporarily reduce NAND Flash output by around 30%. Here's the scary part: "the duration and extent of this reduction in fab output will depend upon market conditions." You guys are all going to feel really goofy when consumers realize they simply can't live without their constant flow of semiconductors and decorated Segways here in a few months -- just sayin'.
