Will Intel expand
its SiS orders? It looks like it will. Nanya says it's hard
for memory manufacturers to make a profit in the second quarter. Will this $600
Euro Blu-Ray burner be the price benchmark for others?
The price of the BD-M100A is about 10% lower than the planned price of a
Pioneer BD burner model to be launched next quarter as well, the sources indicated.
Since Sony NEC Optiarc and Pioneer are members of the BD Association, their
pricing would be a reference for other members, such as Philips, LG Electronics
and Samsung, to set prices for BD burners, the sources pointed out.
