Dunnersfella: I'm not surprised that the new iPod Touch is more expensive, the current model has been around for 2 generations now, meaning it has become more cost effective to manufacture.
I'm surprised no one has got on the 'Why have they killed the Classic' bandwagon though...
Not that I want one whatsoever, but, well, I'm just a little taken back that no one has decided to whinge about it on here ;-)
I agree, but in the USA they are selling the new ipod touch for the same pricing as the previous one. The previous NZ pricing was struck when the NZ/US dollar was around 60-70 cents. Today it is at 82 cents so they must be making a big margin from the exchange rate.
The ipod classic is probably still there because it is their iconic product and the only one still with the click wheel. Altough I thought their older video nano with the click wheel was a better product. Don't know who is buying them, but perhaps they have a large amount of stock to get through. They are still good devices but technology has moved on. Although it is still the only product with over 100GB of storage. Put 160GB of flash storage on an ipod touch and I'll buy one.
