Just Snagged a 1G MS Pro Duo. :) Bigger = Better ?
I managed to snag a Sony High-Speed 1G Memory Stick Pro Duo yesterday after putting in an order for some 512mbs for a m8. I assumed it would have arrived a bit sooner then that, but this is early enough for me. It's not a shocker that this 1G pricing is super inflated though. I only managed to get one at a little less then 140 GBP, so Sony will be making a killing on it until competing manufacturers start to release them. It does save the convenience of having to purchase several 512mbs though which at this point I already have 4 of including (35) 128mb MSDs. However, I'm not quite sure what this means in terms of utilization. I'm still waiting for software developers to take advantage of the expanded memory potential of the P910.
With that said, I wonder what lies in store for the P910. Being that I've already maxed out its capacity I wonder if SE will leave larger media capacity potential to is successor. I'm guessing by the time a 2G + MS Pro Duo gets released (more likely Q2-Q3 of 2005) it will be right in time for the P910 successor to start making waves in mobile news.
On the other hand, those spare MSDs (128mb - 512mb) laying around the house will come in handy for a soon to be released Sony toy... I'm expecting to grab my MSD PRO compatible Sony PSP in exactly 3 1/2 weeks. It's amazing that Sony is only packaging it with a 32 MSD, but that shouldn't pose an issue for most Pxxx owners that more likely already have a few around. So keep those MSDs around for keeps sakes. I'm sure you'll find good uses for them as I will in my case.
