SSD prices in freefall -- won't overtake hard disks anytime soon

Some Insights into Memory prices:

We've already heard from Sandisk that SSD prices should fall by about 60% annually.
Nice, but SSDs are currently 5x the cost of their mechanical brethren:
$7.5/GB compared to $1.4/GB for HDDs. Even by 2010, Samsung (backed by
DataQuest research) still estimates at least a 3.x gap: $2.5/GB for
SSDs vs $0.6/GB for HDDs.
