Apple Now Samsung’s Largest Customer, Will Spend $7.8 Billion on Parts in 2011

Apple is now Samsung’s BFF. According to an unconfirmed report published by the Korea Economic Daily, Apple is expected to purchase mobile device components to the tune of $7.8 billion. This is certainly no dabbling in Samsung parts, this is diving completely in head-first as this would put Apple in as Samsung’s largest customer.

The Korea Economic Daily mentioned that this purchase is going toward liquid crystal displays, NAND flash memory chips, and mobile application processors. These are expected to be used for iPhones and iPads, which of course are, interestingly enough, some of Samsung’s biggest competition.

This news is still unconfirmed, but as always will update you with any breaking news on the matter.
