"The latter division only manages tier one storage brands, therefore, deploys a very knowledgeable team to promote and ensure the continued and future success of Crucial and Ballistix products in Australia."

Micron Technology is a provider of semiconductor solutions the company manufactures and markets a full range of DRAM, NAND and NOR flash memory, and other memory technologies. The vendor's revenues for the last quarter globally were US$2.9 billion.

5G phones have arrived. How long until you buy one?
OMG right now this minute shut up and take my money
About six months from now, once network coverage improves
About a year from now, once I have a few handsets to choose from
Maybe never - I don't think I'll need a faster phone
Never - You'll have to take my Nokia 3210 from my cold, dead hands
