The company is already sampling the 64GB module and expects mass production to begin during Q1 of 2010.

    Pricing makes a big difference, but I concur that this looks like prime target for Iphone/Ipod. Does anyone have a link to a article on the "space constraints" issue for the iphone? Sounds like a marketing not technical decision to me to try to differentiate the ipod touch a bit from the iphone.

    Hopefully the Zune HD will get a capacity boost too! Not sure who the supplier is for the Zune, but once one company does something, the competition does it too...

    Yes, I'll be waiting for a higher capacity flash drive. Right now I'm stuck on hard drive 'media' players fro the capacity. upgrading from my existing 30gb zune to a 32gb zune hd seems to me a bit counterproductive...considering higher quality video takes up more space.
