Last year I checked prices and it was about £50 for a third generation model and £100 brand new for a new 4th gen via ebay. Now 1st gen are £50, second gen about £70 and third as high as £125 but that's crazy there's a new model due the old models like 2nd gen wont get IOS5 either. I'm looking for it as a gift but the prices are crazy. How come it's went so high in the last year yet a new model is due very soon? (Those prices are for the 8GB models) MOD NOTE: Reminder from the moderators: This thread is for price advice.
