Inotera corporate milestones - 2002 to 2014

Editor's comments:- As far as I know - upto 2015 - Inotera never entered the SSD market - which is why I stopped writing about it for 10 years. Therefore Inotera was a pure play memory company (RAM) at the time Micron announced in December 2015 it wanted to acquire all its assets .

...Later:- in June 2016 - the market heard that the acquisition had been put on ice.
