Now that the 64Gb cards are somewhat affordable, I don't see any need for multiple slots on a portable player. Everything in my collection that I would want to listen to fits on my 80GB 5.5G iPod.
Of course, I don't bother with lossless on a portable player either....
My lossy collection is well over 200GB
Prolly 8. However, They could easily put 500GB of flash memory inside of a player, with room for a sd card slot or two and it would fit in your shirt pocket. Flash memory is small and relatively cheap.
Heck, Sandisk -makes- memory.. *shakes head*
