Apple Orders 50 Million NAND Chips from Samsung

Apple reportedly ordered 50 million 8GB NAND chips from Samsung's memory division in early July. There are rumors that the chips will be in the new iPhone 3G models. Samsung, according to Digitimes, has told its lesser customers that it plans to reduce NAND chip supplies starting July. Is this a sign that the rumors that iPhone 3G and iPod will soon be gifted with the ability to remotely control a user's iTunes library in the home will be realized?
