iPod touch – $199 8GB, $299 32GB & $399 64GB (No Camera)

iPod touch The iPod touch did receive some attention today at Apple’s “It’s only rock and roll, but we like it.” event however, it might not have been what everyone was expecting.

Of course Apple gave all the statistics on how the iPod (including the touch) is blowing all other devices out the water and how they have sold over 20 million already. They also spent quite a bit of time demoing games on the device such as; sequel to Assassin’s Creed, Riddim Ribbon (a new game by Tapulous – developers of Tap Tap Revenge), Nova (new game by Gameloft) and Madden NFL 2010 (a new game by EA Games). They went on to say that there are 607 titles on PSP, 3680 on DS, and 21,178 on iPhone OS… not too bad (and much cheaper!). [Read more…]

$199 too good to be true?

So, what’s the catch? It sounds like there is a catch and if you’re planning on unlocking, it’s a big catch. AT&T is saying there will be in store activation only, and there may be a penalty for not activating your iPhone 3G within 30 days of purchase. You also have to sign a 2 year contract whether you have an existing iPhone and/or account. They are also dropping the GoPhone plans and raising the data plan to $30 a month from $20 due to 3G. This shouldn’t effect me since I’m already with AT&T. We’ll probably move our numbers to the new iPhones and unlock our old ones for testing purposes. $10 more a month x2 for 3G is ok I guess (once they get it in our area).
