Apple Drops iPod Touch and Nano Prices

In what's probably an attempt to sell off the old and make room for the new, Apple has cut the price of the iPod Touch, the iPod Nano and the iPod Classic. The 32 GB iPod Touch has gone from $400 to just $280, while the 16 GB and 8 GB versions have dropped to $250 and $190 (down from $300 and $230) respectively.

The 16 GB Nano has gone from $200 to $150 while the 8 GB model is now $130, down from $150. The iPod Classic has gone from $250 to $230.

The price cuts come on the same day that Apple is expected to announce a new camera-equipped iPod Touch and Nano. However, if the reaction in the comments is anything to go by, not too many of you are keen on the idea of an MP3 player with a camera, at least when it comes to the Nano. Given the choice, which would you purchase? Let us know in the comments below!

    Why the F**k should i have a camera on my Digital Audio Player? I would really prefer support to codecs like Ogg, Flac, Mpc ecc ecc.
  • backbydemand
    Good point, please support more audio codecs

    Only bother with a camera if you are going to put an optical zoom on it

    Peculiar. Apple typically does not include older versions of their products in their typical line up after a refresh. This makes me wonder if the new versions will just be minor refreshes with a camera, and thats it? Has Apple finally hit the peverbial brick wall with iPod advancements?

    Wow for $30 more you can go from the 16 to 32 gig itouch. You would be stupid to get the 16 gig now.
  • doomtomb
    Lol, don't wait for the camera just get the cheaper one!
  • The Dark Wall
    Hmm... still not sure that an iGrenade is worth $280. Still needs work before I get my hands on one.
  • Not seeing this reflected anywhere yet... wonder how long it will take Amazon, etc. to ship them for even less...

    They're probably trying to grab a little more market share before the Zune HD debuts next week and blows them out of the water.
  • bigalfantasy2004
    Given a choice I would purchase the new Zune HD.

    a camera is so retarded. arguggi is right. its a frigging music player. but a radio receiver on the ipod.

    and these price points are retarded. only $30 difference between 16 and 32GB?
