Biggest driver for SSD will be mobility and quest for longer battery life of tablets, ultrabooks and laptops.

Nice analysis. In a broken global economy, flood will not make all the difference. Until the Euro mess is sorted out, I do not see any uptick

Increased adoption will always be based on fundamental shifts in the SSD value proposition and not short term market abnormalities such as those caused by the terrible floods in Thailand. Given the much smaller market size of SSDs to HDDs, the impact to the SSD market of seemingly small upsides when compared to HDD volumes may be very interesting to watch as they will likely be impactful.
