Re: xD not expensive anymore!

I haven't really seen much in the way of price drops in xD. Currently using a 128mb and would like to get a 256mb. (Note however that Best Buy has a 128mb for $19.99 this week after a $10 MIR- - hot price!!)

In general, flash memory is supposed to be falling in price as other players try to get in the market. Currently, all flash memory is made by Toshiba and Samsung and it is a high profit product. Hopefully, there will be some significant price drops in xD soon, so some of us that want to upgrade can do so at a reasonable cost. Story below provides some insight into the market sturcture.
