When I bought a 1 GB Kingston pendrive at the beginning of june, it did cost Rs.1450 in bangalore. (but it was slow - read/write was 6mBps/3mBps)Now, the same is available for Rs.790 and 2 GB pendrive (a newer & much faster model) comes for Rs.1300
Dude...MP3 is patented, so the real companies like Transcend, Apple etc who license it pass on their costs..in case of chinese playes , I doubt, thats why the chinese palyers are cheap. Remember its not always about hardware.

yeah, only thing is that they start failing after like 100,000 cycles
I've read the same too, but i wonder whether its still relevant now a days.
What he means here is that each sector (if u can call it such) on a flash card is only good upto 100,000 writes. So imagine something like a windows paging file that would be constantly be changing meaning that storage life of such a device would be considerably shorter in comparison to say a regular HD.
