    the dick smith electronics store in town are selling ipod touches with a 25% discount, that pretty hefty. Can only mean they are clearing them before a much more awesome model comes out after WWDC. It was tempting to buy one at that price but then with new ones around the corner i told myself no! new ones will probably double their storage capacity for the same price.

    Your interpretation could be true, but I'd just as likely view it as a store trying to persuade hard-pressed consumers to part with their cash in these recessionary times. Not only is there is credit crunch, and recession, at present, but anything I have read suggests that many businesses are suffering from cash-flow problems, as well.

    Cheers and good luck

    The iPod touch usually gets updated in the fall, along with the other iPods. Not at WWDC.

    I think they'll be updated after Apple has cleared their inventory via back to school promotion as usual.

    Tuesday after promotion is over, bam! 3.0 software, 48 & 64GB's, camera, microSD card - the works.

    Maybe they're also counting on customers purchasing accessories too? Cases, headphones, docks, chargers etc... But yeah, very possible new models sometime soon.

    here in nz we have a apple distributor, which also takes a cut so that ends up in the retailer making almost nothing from apple product sales.

    They will be losing out of these sales if they havnt been able to get these in at a very good price (ie clearance).

    ok i was wrong. i dont mind admitting that. it just seemed very unusual to have any apple product on a decent special in NZ as theres little profit margin on apple products
