Prices have been steadily rising since late January and now we (everyone in the flash market) are facing another increase. Apple recently announced that it’s starting development on a 32GB iPhone. It also made a bulk purchase of 100 million 8GB flash chips, which pretty much drained the market, causing a significant shortage. It is still too early to tell how long prices will stay up, or how high they will go. I’ll keep posting updates.
