Sansa fuse has SD cards. Great sound quality too. Put Rockbox firmware on it.

Archos has a 250GB tablet. You can get it for $257 USD on Amazon.

that's an easy one, that much flash memory in such a small form factor is still a bit pricy to make
just look at flash drives they're still pretty expensive above 64gb

it's about how much the consumer is willing to pay that most companies don't bother making media players with that much storage

but they couldn't at least give us a 120GB device that had one or two card slots?

aside from a very small number, there's not much demand for that kind of thing
if you want that much storage then the iPod Classic is really your only option, and the only reason that's still around is sentimental reasons (as far as i can tell). quite honestly I don't know of any other media player that has that much built in storage let alone expandable up to that amount.
