I know nothing is announced for Lion.
The upgrade for Snow Leopard is currently 26 on the UK store. I'm just wondering if it's typically around this price at launch, or if they launch at a high price then drop?

There really is no upgrade price with Apple, Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger and Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard each cost 129 USD, regardless of what previous OS you have. Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard was just 29 USD as it was more of a "Service Pack", as most of the changes have been under the hood and not the fancy schmancy one expects from a new OS.
Therefore it is safe to assume that Mac OS X 10.7 Lion will cost more than 29 USD, it even might cost less than 129 USD and be around 70 to 80 USD.
