CURIOSITY: miniSD cards for US$ 999.00 "only"?

Okay, miniSD cards are still pretty new and the miniaturization costs its price; also more and more users are in need for miniSD cards since new Windows Mobile devices like the Motorola MPx220, the i-mate SP3 and SP3i as well as many regular mobile phones need miniSD instead of regular SD cards (not to talk about microSD) but US$ 999 for a singe 1GB card?

I've just surfed through the web because I need two more miniSD cards and came across FlashMemoryStore.com who seems to be a good memory card online shop but what's that:

They must be kidding, they ran out of stock or they haven't received them now. ;-) Anyone out there wants to place an order and let me know if the cards are in stock?

Cheers ~ Arne

If you come up with the money I will buy them, and tell me your experience:D

I'm betting there is a . missing there somewhere.  Even at $99.99, they woild still be kind of high (depending on the brand).  With the Sandisk 1GB mini-SD cards recently released, prices should go way down.  I have seen the Sandisk 1GB for $75-$80.

But doesnt it feel like we're re-inventing the wheel here?
I'm getting tired of having to buy the same amount of storage over and over again.

I hate it when they keep changing formats.  Why can't we all stick to just one standard?

It is evolution.  If we stuck to the same format, there wouldn't even be SD or CF.  We would all be using PCMCIA for all mobile storage.  Using mini-SD means the phone can be drastically smaller and sleeker.  I don't mind dropping a little money for improved technology.

Well either they want to be rich in a very short time or they f...d up their database. Even the regular SD cards are extremely overpriced compared to the local price in The Netherlands.
