Where do you get the 2 month time frame?
Samsung must renew their patent usage with Sandisk very soon, and supposedly Sandisk is jacking the price up real high because they know how much Sandisk needs it. The patent royalties are expected to be 1.5 billion over the next few years without taking into consideration the X4 technology, which every cell phone company needs.
If Samsung wants to continue supplying Apple with ipod and iphone flash SSD, they must comply.
Right now there are many companies who should buy Sandisk, Toshiba, Samsung, Intel, and many more.
The only obstacle now is that CEO wants 40$+ for his company, and Samsung only wants to offer $26.
