I continue to monitor the price changes in mainstream consumer advertisements for MP3 players.
They haven't changed much in recent months until this week.
Some things I noticed:
- Office Depot: SanDisk 2-GB c250 for $50 plus Archos 4-GB 104 for $100.
- Circuit City: Creative Zen V Plus 4-GB for $100 plus Zune 30-GB for $230
- Fry's: San Disk 2-GB C150 for $40 (after rebate) and RCA Lyra 5-GB for $50
It is my prediction that as per GB costs for Flash MP3 players gets below $25, and per GB costs for hard drive players get near $7 that more people currently not on the mobile digital media band wagon will have less of a financial reason to stay out of the game.
This should help generate more people looking for podcast content. What do you think?
