New Ipods are coming!

Sorry if this has been posted up already.

Apple has announced their new ipods.

Regular Ipod and Nano both got facelifts.

Ipod Nano now does video

Regular Ipod now comes in 80gb and 160gb

New Product: Ipod Touch, 8gb and 16gb flavors, basically an iphone without the phone part.

Iphone price has been dropped to $399 (of course, right after I buy one!! )

Itunes will now offer ringtones for the iphone.

Itunes will also be usable on the ipod touch and the iphone

Oh yeah...the price change for the iphone is effective immediately, the new ipod/nano should be out in a few days, the ipod touch should be out sometime this month, and the Itunes changes should happen in a few days. Bestbuy.com already has the ipod/nano available for pre-order.

Life isn't fair. All you can do is try to make it unfair in your favor.

I just want to know what genius made the Ipod Touch with a max of 16gb. I would have bought one had it been offered in the 80 or 160

I actually predicted back in january that the ipod touch would come out. I was like "they'll wait a few months to let the iphone sell, then drop a new one just like it without the phone right before the christmas sale season with a much larger storage capacity"....too bad I got the last part wrong. . .

whelp, now you can stop holding out.

I'll probably get a 160gb classic, myself. Can't see getting an Ipod Touch just because it's got 8gb more storage space than my iphone. . .

internal I think it's 4gb, but I store all my mp3's and video's on a 4 gig SD card...even at that you will never store that much on the card, so these 160 gig ipods are worthless b/c you'd have to scroll thru all the crap to find a song or vid you are looking for.

I have the Blackberry World Edition, does everything also. But I use the Creative ZEN MircoPhoto when I'm on the bike. i've dropped that down a flight of stairs and it's fallen out of my pocket at 80mph+ and it's still going. I went through five iPods when I started riding, they suck!

However, I did hear on the news that the iPhone went down $200.00 in price now and people are pissed that it went down and they want the credit for it!

Hey, I knew that, you knew that, and anyone with common sense and a brain would know that. Its the same thing that happened with PS2, PS3, XBOX, XBOX360, and the PSP, they all went down within 6 months. And the PSP is now selling for like $150 at WalMart rather than the $300 that it came out for initially.

I think a major reason why it went down is due to the fact that it can only be used on the AT&T network. If they made it available for like Verizon, Sprint, and others, they'd have more sales and stuff.

However, people asking for a refund for the difference after two / three months of it being out is NOT going to happen.
