Now we need to make a few more assumptions for the rest. Assuming ~50% circuit density and similar cost, the remaining substrate would cost around $50. That's pretty significant, especially considering that many chips will be significantly smaller than a square inch.

If you want a phone that _just_ works get an Apple.
If you want stuff to work effectively and efficiently, get an Android
If they put the same technology into a larger form factor, it wouldn't be long before the petabyte is reached.

Put some gorilla glass on them and sensors and Wal-Mart could pester us with ads on every step instead of just the few annoying end caps.
