You are comparing apples and oranges and you know it. The Sansa has a tiny 1.8" TFT display and no touch capabilities.yacoub said:Considering Sandisk's new Sansa media player with 16GB will be priced at $199, I would guess $299 or $399 for a 32GB model before the end of the year would be an appropriate price.
And considering Apple has neutered the PDA functionality, they really have little reason to charge TWICE as much.
And no wifi.
And no Safari (or any other) web browser.
The cost of the memory in a device is only part of the overall cost. The cost of the display/motion sensors, etc, in the Touch probably cost as much as the flash memory.
