Flashing consumers with iPod

Rumors are abound that Apple is working on a flash RAM-based iPod to round out its product offering in the sub $200 category. Apple seems encouraged by falling prices of flash RAM and the need to expand into Asia, a market rife with flash RAM-based digital music players.

The move would, however, contradict statements from Apple’s CEO, Steve Jobs, that flash RAM-based music players are a thing of the past.
