Prices on flash storage never remain consistent anymore thanks to the growing demand for mobile devices. If Apple laid out cash to buy up millions of chips for a new device tomorrow prices would likely rise. And so many new Android devices are coming in the next couple months which is no doubt going to have a big impact on the market.
But isn't SD the more popular format? SD cards seem to be vastly more plentiful, not to mention cheaper for equivalent size/speed, than CF cards. I would imagine these new devices would use SD cards before they used CF cards. I think even Canon recognizes the trend towards the SD format, by virtue of the fact that the 5DIII takes CF as well as SD cards. Maybe that means that CF prices will stabilize due to a well defined market. I'm not really in the market for any though, as I have 4 16gb and 2 8gb 400x cards, and they meet my current (and foreseeable future) needs.
