I would have to speculate that the market is going to NAND. For applications of code storage, I am not sure that this is a prudent direction. NOR is much higher quality flash and better suited towards code storage. Hang in there Spansion!

Yes, this is disturbing. They were strong player in NOR. Where is that market going?

There does seem to be a lot of down sizing in the industry right now. Consolidating their production facilities tells me that they don't have enough product being manufactured to keep them both busy. Not a good direction for the company.

First AMD and now Spansion. Will there be more layoffs announced? Interesting when at least in the local (Silicon Valley), news there have been recent articles about having a lower unemployment rate than the rest of the state.

This is industry wide - it is very bad. I do not know if this is competition or just the pressure from Wall Street. It is too early to say.
