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

Wow, I used to think it would cost more then 2k. Wonder how on earth companies charge so much for MP3 players based on the same technology.

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.

The economics are:

$2.5 per mp3 encoder with a yearly minimum of $15,000[/b]

Even that does not justify the costs.
