Portable media player price to drop to $99-$199

Taiwanese MP3 makers believe the cost of PMPs will drop from $299-$399 to only $99-$199 because of significant price cuts of LCD panels and other components:
Sales of PMPs have been short of expectations mainly because of high retail prices and the poor quality of video playback, the sources indicated. With adoption of on-chip MP4 compression, PMPs can play video at 20-24 frames per second making the resolution comparable with that of DVD video, according to the Taiwan-based MP3/PMP maker Ergotech.
