There's another post discussing the possibility of an iPod Touch price drop in the near future, did you all miss the actual price drop? It's right here. Supply and demand, the worldwide market is determined by lots of factors, and in case you haven't noticed, even the MSRP on apple.com doesn't determine what a brand new unopened iPod Touch costs online. So if Apple hopes to sell any ipods at MSRP, they better start matching the market, and they will - whether that means they will upgrade the current one somehow, or drop the price, or make a combination of both, it is unevitable that it will happen. But the -real- price already has dropped.
