Apple Orders 100 Million 8Gb Chips for New iPhone?

Apple has placed an order for 100 million 8Gb NAND flash chips to be used in the next iPhone, according to a DigiTimes report.

Apple has reportedly placed orders for 100 million 8Gb NAND flash chips mostly with Samsung Electronics, which is likely to cause a supply shortage, according to sources at downstream suppliers. Nokia and Sony recently also began building their NAND flash inventories, further tightening supply, the sources added.

These chips are combined during manufacturing into larger 16GB and 32GB capacities.
