Next Gen iPhone: Apple Gobbling up NAND Flash Memory
DigiTimes (via Engadget) is reporting that Apple is once again draining the world dry of NAND Flash memory chips ahead of an anticipated summer iPhone hardware refresh.
The iPhone 3G has one NAND Flash memory slot, currently maxing out at the 16GB density. So, if Apple is planning to take it to 32GB, higher density chips will of course be required.

Anyone out there itching to load that much data on a multi-touch device?
