Do SSD Drives become fragmented?

The question says it all. I have noticed a large growth in the use of SSD drives instead of Hard Disk Drives due to the boost of speed and now wounder: Do SSD Drives become fragmented like Hard Disk Drives?

No, an SSD will never become fragmented and will never need to be defragmented. This is because flash memory access is uniformally instant no matter where the page is from on the device.
