This has no effect on the limited supply that's available outside of Korea, unfortunately, but if you're in Korea and have been holding off on buying the WinCE-based mintpass mintpad multimedia network handheld for whatever reason, then your patience is being rewarded. The white mintpad and black mintpad DMB have both received a 30,000 KRW price cut, bringing their respective costs down to 169,000 KRW (~$131) and 209,000 KRW (~$163).
Whether these new prices will be reflected in the currently undetermined official US price or they indicate that progress is being made on the mintpad 2.0, the reduction is great news, especially considering how much the tiny device can actually do.
