Jan. 19, 2012 - PRLog -- More inexpensive flash memory prices and low priced USB flash drives will probably help push Android cell phone and MID sales says   wholesale firm iSourceChina.

USB flash memory end user prices have tumbled since the year 2000. It would cost thirty three US dollars for a 128MB drive in 2003 but in 2010 the same amount of money got you a further 15.8GB.

Johnathan Walker, PR Manager for China electronics wholesale firm iSourceChina, predicted that it would help Android tablet and mobile phone makers, who have already cut into Apple's territory.

Search ad network Chitika announced in early January that Android had replaced iOS in North America as the largest mobile operating system.

Then, at CES 2012, Sony put out four new Android smartphone models with Motorola and LG also releasing phones.

“People getting smart phones to the first time will probably choose Android now,” said Mr Walker. “Especially when the external memory costs less than $30 for 16GB,”

The Android OS relies on external micro SD cards for most of its data storage requirements and the high cost of mini SD cards meant that Android mobile phone prices were on par with the iPhone.  

This was further complicated by the shortage of high capacity mini SD cards up to December 2007.

“16GB of flash memory now costs 25 US dollars or less at the wholesale level,” said Mr Walker. “It is entirely possible for people to own an Android phone that outperforms the iPhone in every way for a fraction of the cost.”

The   wholesale firm, iSourceChina, has just launched a line of flash  cards, USB flash sticks and novelty USB  sticks, to meet customer demand.

“Tablets and Smartphones are more than just communication and entertainment devices these days,” said Mr Walker. “They are mobile command centers and people need serious memory capacity to get the most out of them.”

iSourceChina has been able to source USB  sticks and SD cards for prices that added up to $1.02 USD per gigabite.

“The cost of flash memory is almost cheaper than the cost of a phone call now.”
