Hey every1,
I was browsing the Apple Store online, and i clicked on the 20GB iPod and saw something interesting...
When you pull up the page on the 20 gigger, the "compare this to other iPods" bar shows a 30GB 4G, holding 7500 songs and costing $299.

Any thoughts? I hope its as thin as the current 20GB 4G!

Er.. wouldn't this just be the older 30GB model that they have discontinued and now sell via the Apple "Sale" page?

Doesnt seem so. The 30GB 4G that is on the Sale page is selling for $349 with a $20 off, so $329. The one on the bottom of the screen is advertised for $299.

Hmm good point... so maybe it's just a typo on Apple.com's part? Maybe they just didn't change the tiny icon to reflect the same 20GB as in the larger image?

It's has to be an old image...the 1GB shuffle is at it's old price ($149).

EDIT: Wait, all the comparison charts still list the 1GB shuffle at $149! :confused:

Was the past 30GB iPod $299 as well?

I still see it, but only on the iPod (photo/color) info page in the store.

Its gone again. I guess Apple caught it and fixed it. Just an error or maybe a hint as to whats next? :confused:

You could probably go to an Apple Retail Store and they might have some 30GB leftover. I've seen them being sold recently here in Florida. I guess they are there for whoever asks for them.
