    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).

    Pixmania is a legitimate company as well as amazon anyway.

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

    Still, great price though.

    Costco was doing the same thing. All iPods 20 dollars off. Steve, Amazon, and Costco and in cahoots!
