    Just heard that up to 2 terabyte memory sticks were announced to be in development. Does anyone know of the compatibility of these memory cards with the creative zii?

    Although 2TB is in fact very excessive, it would be nice to not have to worry about space at all and just put whatever you want on a hand held device.

    Keep in mind that this new memory stick format can hold at maximum 2TB, so there are smaller size capacities in development too. If these are compatible with the creative zii, that's a big plus in my book.

    Thoughts?

    From what I've read around on the internet, people are estimating $400 for the 2TB, which will steadily decrease after a year.

    I personally have no idea how memory sticks are priced, but they will most likely be somewhat affordable...

    Keep in mind that they will probably release smaller capacity memory sticks (I would guess around 1 terabyte and 500gb) for cheaper

    I really have no idea if the $400 estimate is legit though. Could be much higher...guess we'll just have to wait and see.

    well, this new technology won't be very expensive for long... think of it as the blu-ray of flash memory.

    The general population doesn't even have 2TB on their computer, probably not even 500GB/1TB. Some people do, most don't.
