Product revenues for the fourth quarter of 2002 increased 90% and the average selling price per megabyte declined 31% compared to the fourth quarter of 2001. The increase in revenue was driven by growth in units sold of 112% and in megabytes sold of 203% over the comparable period in 2001.
Apparently digital cameras are selling well:

I was in a local camera store in Austin, TX and the owner predicted that the 35mm camera would be extinct within 5 years. This was two years ago. His reference was to 35mm bought by the family and not the professional or camera purist. Cost are following and printing is easier. I think he is right.

Considering that this type of "NAND" flash goes into only 10% of the market. That's pretty amazing!

Can you imagine the other 90%? ie cell phones, PDAs, MP3 players etc...
