    Hi from Scotland in the UK!
    about to get my touch and I'm a bit confused with the versions being sold at Amazon and elsewhere.

    We have THIS:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Apple-touch-without-Software-Updates/dp/B000VBI0EG

    16GB without software updates..£214.99

    and THIS: (on the american site)
    http://www.amazon.com/Apple-iPod-touch-Software-Upgrade/dp/B0012JCZYM

    16GB with updates...

    and in the UK (where I am...THIS:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0013K4ZZM/km-21/ref=nosim

    and THIS:
    http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/5136869/Trail/searchtext>IPOD.htm

    =====================================

    My question is....

    This "software update".....is it just the firmware 2.0 upgrade and the 5 extra apps?
    If so, wouldn't it be the best thing to get the Ipod WITHOUT the updates......and use Apple.com (or wherever) to get the 2.0 update and app..

    *AT A MUCH REDUCED PRICE" ????

    The editions on sale make no sense to me, is there something I'm missing or can I upodate the "non updated" version no problem once I've bought it.

    **My guess is that these stores are trying to get rid of old "non upgraded" stock at a reduced price and if so, it means being able to get a 16GB rather than an 8gb.

    Thanks for any replies.

    I think it's the January upgrade pack. Just get the less expensive one.

    The one's on Amazon do not have 2.0. They only have the Jan. stuff like the other person says. I got mine from there and I had to buy 2.0. Get the cheaper one

    apple dont sell their iPods with 2.0. they have 1.1.5 (thats what im told, i may be wrong) but the update for 2.0 is only £5.99 so you might as well get the cheapest and get the 2.0 upgrade. btw, welcome to the forums
