UK iPod pricing


UK iPod pricing

because nobody mentions it at the events and I'm sad enough to go around the UK store doing sums


The main iPod that anyone wants (I assume) is the touch; the 8GB version is £199 and the 16GB is £269


Looking at the ex-VAT prices that's a 20% or so markup on the pre-sales-tax dollar price, which is fairly high, but about in line with other electronics, from what I recall.


The fat Nano starts at £99 (for the 4GB model; the 8GB is £129) and the shuffle's down to £49 (actually, that may have happened already, but it seems cheap).


The classic models come in at £159 for 80GB and £229 for 160GB.


I'd love to mention iPhone pricing, but there's still no announcment on European carriers, despite the gathering of European journalists in the BBC for a keynote simulcast thing.




We hate you all. Yes, especially you. Sod off and DIE
