Flash Memory Drops In Price, Possible 32GB iPhone?

There sadly hasn't been a 32GB iPhone to date due to the extremely high price of SSD flash memory, but it won't stay that way for much longer. According to Yahoo, the price of flash memory is plummeting, meaning the end products are getting more affordable. That means Apple might eventually be able to put more into the iPhone.In the last 5 months, flash memory has dropped 75% in price. 1GB chipsets are selling for as low as $2.23, and 4GB for $12.30. Why does this matter? Because if the price drops low enough, Apple may chose to shove a whole 32GB into an iPhone, making them an alternative to an iPod Classic for those who need more than 8GB or16GB.
