Pre lull in IT SECTOR

Since the actual beginning in Europe and the USA season Christmas / New Year holidays flow of business news from the IT industry immediately dropped to a very small pond. Because our business review at this time would be markedly less than normal. However, a few noteworthy news, I have managed to find.

The Chinese company Lenovo to Build Plant in Poland - in Legnitskoy special economic zone. The new production of a total area of 30,000 m2 will be launched in the third quarter of next year and will employ 1000 people. It is anticipated that the plant in Poland will issue two million computers a year. This is the fifth consecutive plant, the company announced earlier this year. In addition to Poland, the new Lenovo will enterprises in Shanghai, in North Carolina (USA), in the Mexican Monterrey and in the Indian city of Baddi. However, I will say to you, the trend.

Taiwan manufacturers of memory cards forecast decline in the value of 2 - gigabyte modules to $ 10. These prices are available to vendors already by the end of the year. Retailers will now take on the memory card volume 2 GB for the price of $ 12-14. Reported that NAND chip memory capacity of 16 Gbps (2 GB), produced by 50 - nanometer technological process, in 2008, would cost only $ 3 - $ 4. Thus, 4 - gigabaytnaya memory card will be sold for $ 10 or a bit cheaper. In this case, of course, we are talking about prices for suppliers - that is the so-called "Large wholesale." The ultimate user would have to pay more in a few times. Falling prices of memory chips positively affect the value of MP3 players, digital cameras and other Bugs with the internal flash memory.
