Best Guess on Price Drop?

What is your best guess on the price drop?

When do you think we'll see a price reduction in the DX?

My opinion.. It's going to be quite a while.

Just like the music industry, book publishers are not ready to embrace new technology and until they do, the prices will remain high for ebooks.

Time? Well, the music industry is still fighting digital music and it's been -- 8-10 years?

I think he asked for the hardware not for book prices. Thats why i would guess never.

Talking about the price of the DX itself.

yes, was talking about the Hardware. I thought the Kindle 2 started out a tad more expensive and the price went done.

I wonder when the price of the DX will drop?
