    R&D cost probably outweighs returns. Let someone else develop and buy in. Could also be a sign of the start of a ssd price crash with the bottom falling out of the market or too much competition low end to get a decent return.

    Nand prices are bound to crash eventually, Intel is just cashing in on it while they can still get money for it, besides, Intel holds a load of patents still, so even if they don't manufacture Nand anymore they will still get money in the future, just with less risks.
