Solid State Storage Sales Soon

As Solid State storage becomes more common, and less volatile when the power goes off, 3.5" & 2.5" hard drives may disappear.  This could mean notebook computers becom even more light and skinny, and storage will be even denser.  The big question is of course the price, and The Inquirer is reporting that the costs will be much more attractive over the coming year.


The market research company predicted that NAND memory average selling price will fall by 43% CAGR

between 2004 and 2009, but other factors than price per gigabyte are at play, IDC said.

Those include capacity, but also form factor, power consumption, weight, durability, data rates

and alliances between OEMs and storage suppliers.

The mechanical hard drive makers are unlikely to give up without a fight. And Celeste Crystal,

senior analyst of the IDC semi research division said that flash and HDD vendors should make

alliances to broaden their product range."
