To flash or not to flash?
Alleged Apple Flash iPod 'partner' signs with Rio
SigmaTel has now announced a two-year deal to supply Rio with controller chips for both Flash- and hard drive-based music products. This makes it somewhat less likely that Apple should have plans to release a flashbased product with SigmaTel as reported last week.
Pace Pfaum's "numerous sources in Asia", it seems likely that if Apple was pondering a Flash-based iPod, it would stick with its established partner. But is a Flash iPod likely? Again, it's not beyond the bounds of possibility, but Apple's focus on hard drive players - which the market as a whole is tending too - particularly given the big price-per-megabyte advantage they offer over Flash, makes such a move seem unlikely. Indeed, Mini is specifically offered as a better value alternative to Flash-based players.Then again, some of us don't need to always carry gigabytes of music and actually like tiny players.
