New iPods

Nano-nano (8GB $149 and 16GB $199)

Gray, Black, Purple, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, Red, Pink
(Why no dark blue?)

It is thinner, it has a wide screen and built-in accelerometer. That means you can rotate it sideways for that pretty album cover flow and shake it to shuffle to the next song. I pity joggers.

iPod Classic in one flavor 120GB $250, two colors.

iPod Touch 2 Thinner and integrated Nike+. (8GB $229 - 16GB $299 - 32GB $399)

Any of you upgrading or buying for the first time?

hahaha. funny thing is... my little cheap, came with the cell phone plan, korean phone is 3G... and i got it almost two years ago.

i bought the 16gig touch when it first came out. it's great. i've used it a lot to show my photographs. i still wish the battery life was better, but hey, it is an improvement over the 5th generation ipod videos (which is what i had before the touch). i also really appreciate the slim look... and now it's slimmer???? wow!!! p.s. there are actually a few good games for it too.

Yes the U.S. is really behind when it comes to internet and cell phone speeds. This country is so in debt with old technology its a little scary. The telephone and internet companies have their claws dug into the legal system that competition is rare. If it wasn't for the fact that Television broadcasters stand to make profit they wouldn't be forcing anyone to go to HD.

i wish these things would drop in prices even more. i mean like walkmans back in my day were $100 to start off, and then i remember them costing about $20. for those of us that like music, but damn, these prices are just too high. I wish I could get a new ipod for $100 or less. otherwise its still tuning in the radio for the same old playlists over and over for me.

There are the Shuffle's which are under $100.

If you want to go under $100 and you want the ability to see pictures and album art then you're going to have to look elsewhere. Creative Labs and SanDisk make some great, cheaper Mp3 players that do more than most iPods do. They can usually record, and play radio or even sometimes have the ability to upgrade with flash memory which isn't anything we will EVER see on an iPOD.
