How low can MP3 player prices go?

Delstar has a 1GB model for $30.

Chip Chick

Just yesterday we were discussing the race toward commoditization among low-end MP3 players , and this is one item that provides positive proof of the trend. While the Delstar DS2209 isn't exactly on the verge of unseating the iPod, it certainly can hold its own in competitive pricing at $30. The compact player has 1GB of built-in storage and can an SD slot for more, as well as an FM tuner and voice recorder. It's definitely not what you'd call a fully loaded device but, as Chip Chick rightly notes, the price makes it practically disposable anyway.
