It means they are going to introduce the next node shortly (in the existing fabs). Otherwise the existing 19 nm and 24 nm will be impossible to sell.

I understand that begin of this year Sandisk paused Fab 5 capacity expansion until about mid of this year. I wonder if this is still paused. That would mean no new capacity in Fab 5.

Toshiba says demand is projected to increase and that they will increase production before that happens so they can be ready for it. I think the demand has been strong, but there are just too many parts being produced. It's typical of cyclicality in memory chips--when demand is there they scramble to build more capacity, only to pay the price when supply ends up exceeding demand. Not a business for the weak of heart.

So does it signify any point regarding the reduction in demand for the NAND memory. I believe with the growing sales of tablets and smart phones there shouldn't be any inventory build at the manufacturers.

I understand the pricing pressure on NAND flash now. But aint making such press statements considered market signaling to the competition to reduce production and charge consumer more OR a price fixing tactic?
