    What excited me about the iPhone was that it would be a HUGE customer for flash memory (as we saw with shortages initially). Now we have iPod touch and new nano using flash memory as well.

    Now the reason this is good is economies of scale. For the non-economists out there it means that the more you make of something, the cheaper it becomes. Often this means as it gets cheaper, new uses are found for it...increasing it's usage and production making it cheaper e.t.c.

    And here comes my point. If iPod touch is as successful as previous iPods and iPhone, a flash memory computer suddenly comes possible.

    What do we think?

    I agree, we have had rumors and speculation about flash based notebooks so I think this is very plausible in the near future.
