    Yes, but it is impressive that they included 8gb for only $99.

    Right on brother really impressive they included a A4 SoC, 256MB RAM, 8GB nand flash for only $99. Either Apple is selling it at a loss to gain money with software/rentals or the iPod Touch is really profitable for them and overpriced
