SSD prices to fall below $1 per GB in 2012

angry tapir writes "The price for solid-state drives is expected to fall below US$1 per gigabyte during the second half of 2012, further boosting adoption according to analysts at IDG. In 2011, the price per gigabyte was about $1.56. The increasing use of flash storage in enterprise solutions; the explosive growth of mobile client devices; and lower pricing will help propel the popularity of the technology in the coming years, according to IDC. In the short term, the popularity of SSDs will also get a boost from a shortage of traditional hard drives, as result of the floods in Thailand."
