Tiger Direct just had a small _ 32 GB _ flash drive for $10 after rebate ($20 before rebate). At those prices, absolutely no reason not to have 64 and 128 GB Clip Ultras . . . .
Sure there is…nobody would buy memory cards anymore! :laughing:
True–but you’re charging more for the ultra-capacity players. ;)
So would you buy a 64GB Clip for $200? lol
The 64GB devices from other manufacturers all have cost $350 or better (and I’ve had a couple of them), although they are more full featured.
For a 128 GB player, likely, yes, if it functioned well. Let’s not forget that the original iPod (with a 40 GB hard drive, if I recall correctly) was $500.
But there’s no need to go there: there’s no need for the player to be $200. As I wrote above, Tiger Direct was selling a 32 GB flashdrive for $10 after rebate ($20 before). Putting the memory from 4 of those in a player would only cost $40 (or $80, ignoring the rebate). Add that to a $50 Clip player cost and you have a 128 GB player for $90 (or $130), with the memory manufacturer getting the full price for its memory.
Some memory company, such as SanDisk, could make a killing from this.
