    So yet again, the UK is being ripped off. 32Gb iPod touch is $400 (which is about £225 on the worst exchange rates) and the actually store price is £279. Oh no, that's too cheap, we'd better put it up - £289. All in the space of a few hours.

    I don't even know why I'm surprised any more. :mad:

    $400 + 17.5% VAT = $470 = approx £267, so not really alot in it IMHO.

    The US price does not include sales tax as this varies from state to state. Granted the sales tax is lower there, but thats not Apple's fault. It also is more expensive to do business here.

    How much was the price drop for the 32GB touch in £?

    I know it is £289 now, but what was it before?
