    There will be cheaper soon enough, I recently bought a 64GB card for less than my first 256mb SD card many years ago.

    Capacity Price

    I just bought an SDXC off of Amazon, cost me about £30 for 128GB. Hopefully this SanDisk announcement will drive others to go for similar capacities - in which case I think my SD-upgraded iPod is going to get a capacity boost.

    That price is crazy!

    Literally worth considerably more than its weight in gold...

    No iPod has ever been able to be upgraded using any form of SD Card?

    Yes, lots of tiny devices like Raspberry Pi and media players could really use this one. In time the price will become much lower, I'm sure, and lots of the same tiny devices don't support SD cards of such capaticies yet anyway. This is like SSD for tablets, smartphones, tiny computers and media players.

    I can't justify that cost, but I wonder if it'll make 256GB more affordable. The capacity is handy for HDR timelapse videos which I have been playing with.

    That's exactly the mod I just did (although I need to reopen my eBay'd iPod to reseat the LCD connector I think), removed 30GB HDD and slotted in an iFlash and a 128GB Qumox SDXC card. Once I'd got it back together, a quick firmware download and I'd got a 128GB iPod Video.

    There's also two iPod Mini's in the house that got the Compact Flash upgrade from 8GB to 32GB - although to be honest I found that a good deal easier to do than the iPod Video mod.

    Just wish there was a way to do something similar with the iPod Touch - but that seems to be a strictly "use and throw away" device.
