    Go to http://store.apple.com, click on Shop iPod on the left, then click iPod Touch tab that appears in the middle of the screen. Shows a price of $279. Might be a typo...but thought I'd post it anyways.

    IT IS GOING TO DROP VERY VERY SOON. In the australian apple store the ipod nano and classic have just dropped by $40! The ipod touch will be the next to follow.

    Yes, for Australia. But that's because the AUD's value is increasing over the USD.

    Back to $299...

    Oh boy, more complaints from those who had to "buy the iPhone Apps" for it....

    Maybe more apps? Another $20 to update? (actually, yes, I think the update to 2.0 will cost money for Touch users)

    It will. One of the Apple execs was talking about it in the Q&A after the SDK event a few weeks ago. And it still says $279.

    You can buy the 8gb Touch without the January apps for $279 almost everywhere. $299 with apps. At several online stores you'll find the price (not easily) to be something below the $299. I think they'll have to lower the price soon. It's hard to justify the original prices given lower prices on components.

    Apple doesn't like to play the Moore's Law game.

    8 a.m. on Easter Sunday and it still is saying $279. :confused: It would be nice if Apple did drop the price but $20 seems like such an odd number.

    $229 for an Apple TV is an odd number as well. I don't expect the iPod's price to drop, but that pricing point is not unrealistic.

    I guarentee that you could call an Apple rep and buy one for that price. Just say its advertised on the site and send them the link. Done.

    I guess you're right. I just checked and the price is still wrong. I guess we will find out tomorrow since it's a Tuesday. :cool:
