UK Amazon offloading 5.5g iPods?

Does Amazon know something we don't about a new iPod launch?

80GB iPod -

UK Apple store price: 259.00
UK Amazon store price: 229.99

Is this a stock clearance exercise, or is it perfectly normal?

Ooh nice find. I don't think Amazon know anything we don't...as far as I know the public and retails find out about new releases at the same time, am I correct in saying that?

Spoze they must have some inside information to help them manage their stocks?

This is an 11.5% discount. Never really noticed this sort of discrepancy before...

Someone tell me it's just normal for Amazon to undercut Apple store like this, before I get all excited.

Normal enough. They've been known to do it quite a bit as far as I can tell.

I picked up two 8GB nanos for 136 each over the weekend, through Amazon (pix_mania were the sellers).

Been that price since before Christmas. Went as low as 210 at one time.

Still, great price though.
