Taiwan MP3 prices

Vendors of non-brand name flash-based MP3 players have by 10 to 20 percent for 512MB models and 20 35 percent for 1GB models in the Taiwan market, according to DigiTimes. These vendors have slashed prices in reaction to the launch of Apple's highly competitive iPod nano. An industry source points out that these prices indicate that the iPod nano will have a large competitive impact on the Taiwan market, putting heavy pressure on non-brand name 512MB and 1GB MP3 players. Additionally, about 200 small and medium-size makers of MP3 players in Guangdong, China have been forced to close operations during the first half of this year due to tough competition, according to China-based on-line media SINA.com.
