24-port Gigabit + two 10Gb uplinks

It looks like 24*1Gb + 2*10Gb switches will be showing up soon:

Sandburst and Accton are offering a white-box/OEM 24 port switch with two 10Gb uplinks...
"The resulting system could sell for around $20,000, Sandburst officials say."

Certainly not as cheap as a 2950 with two Gb ports, but this is the start of an entirely new generation of edge switches. Does anyone want to hazard a guess as how long it will be before 24+10Gb switches are selling for $1,500?
3 years?
