Samsung says its upcoming 4GB SSD flash drive will cost less than $200.
In addition to a 2.5" form factor, Samsung will also offer a 1.8" version. Both drives can be mounted in regular 2.5" slots within the PC case.
Samsung has not released pricing on the device, but told TG Daily that it would charge a "slight premium" over the wholesale price of flash memory, which is currently around $65 for 4 GB chips. According to PriceGrabber.com, the average etail price for current 4 GB flash products ranges from about $80 to $200, depending on manufacturer and product.
