Samsung Warns of Severe NAND Flash Shortage

It seems like just yesterday Samsung was proudly touting around their 64GB solid state drive, but today they're singing a different tune, claiming there's gonna be a severe NAND flash shortage during the second half of the year.

Curiously, they don't state the reason for the shortage (they could be inflating their own chests) although a safe assumption is the demand for high-capacity 4GB and 8GB gadgets, like MP3 players and music-playing cell phones. So the bad new is it looks like flash memory prices are gonna go up.
