    Five dollars is probably going to be the most likely price tag. How can Apple expect people to purchase apps if they don't even want to spend the money to gain the ability to purchase apps? I think the whole "nominal fee" thing is stupid since iPod owners spent just as much money on their devices and having them to pay more is ridiculous. Anyways, let's continue to make bets on how much this is going to cost us. Discuss.

    Couldn't this have been posted in one of the many AppStore/2.0 threads?

    that is exactly what i think. the appstore is useless exept for buying apps. and buying apps isnt exactly enntertaining like games or something. so the appstore is actually a base app so it cant be any more than $7-10

    Now see, your logic is flawed. Games are created for entertainment yes. But not everyone is entertained by Games or plays games. You have to remember that people use the iPhone AND iPod Touch for more than just basic media. You have to also take into effect Businesses, Social Networking, Day to Day activities.

    The iPhone and iPod Touch are whole new platforms. NOT JUST FOR GAMING.

    People have to really get that through their skulls. Stop thinking about games and think about the new Paradigm.

    Actually, your point was that the AppStore was useless because it was only for buying Apps.... What else is is it supposed to do? Play Music?

    Your opinion was that it was only to add more entertainment to the device that provides entertainment.

    I agree that it should have been posted in one of the various threads that already talk about the AppStore, but how is it spam?

    not really, your post was just sh*t.

    I mean, when the appstore is available, i willbe happy to pay for any app that improves my ipods functioality. I think it will be great because there will be polished apps. Will apple tell us before they release 2.0? or will they spring it on us like 1.1.4?

    well if the appstore is the only thing that we need to pay for in 2.0 then ill be more than happy to upgrade to it since i have no plans on getting the appstore since online apple store has no power in mexico... meaning that here i cant even get podcasts directly with itunes..... or buy music.... so why would i wat to pay for it... anyways.... i think that the app store should be very cheap since its only the app that stays in the middle between you and the other apps (which u have to pay for anyways) so it shouldnt go over 10-15 bucks.....

    they didnt spring it on us .... they said there was a new update and if u wanted to upgrade to it
