Western Digital May Bid On SanDisk, Says Report

According to Bloomberg, SanDisk has hired investment bankers to find a buyer for the company. Western Digital--one of several companies potentially looking at SanDisk--reportedly has interest in SanDisk due to the importance of flash memory in a growing, flash-based storage market.
