Weak demand drives prices down.
Oh good, this should mean that companies will no longer charge massively over the odds for more storage in smartphones.
We can but only dream.
We all know better though as they will continue to charge the same amount.
Its just waiting for the one company to stop being silly with the size / price before everyone follows track. Everyone is stuck with the copy Apple model or the one option only.
I'm looking forward to doing away with HDDs and being able to more feasibly store all more data on SSDs. Hopefully someone steps up and starts offering more budget orientated mass SSD storage options and their price/gig continues to decline...
No, it just means more profit for those manufacturers.
I dream of the day that 32GB is the introductory storage size of phones and tablets (64GB for Windows tablets).
Hell, a terabyte of NAND fits into the same space as 64GB, let's push for the revolution!
Pc sales are down hard and will likely see further dips. Smartphone bubble has reached saturation point in the developed countries. The whole ssd revolution in pc components has not took off. Most still buying a small 64gb drive.
Ram prices are going up whilst storage continues its drop.
If everyone could hold for 6 month the "dream" wouldn't be "dream" anymore!
I need another flash drive though... I don't want to wait!
when they say they reduce production to increase demand and price, doesnt that sound like price fixing? If not manipulation? The things you can do with the right amount of capital.........
Weird i thought exactly the same thing
They got busted for doing that with Milk in the UK, but alas if these manufacturers are in multiple countries I suppose they could only restrict the sales on a country by country basis via each countries courts. But anyway........
The way it's written does have a feel of price fixing but, on the other hand, it would be commercial suicide to keep producing something where current supplies are in excess.
