    Somebody please explain to me why the ipod touch price hasn't dropped with the Iphone. If I go to Apple, they will charge me $100 dollars more for the same sized ipod touch as compared with a similar iphone despite having less capability. I don't get it.

    Well, if you buy an iPhone you have to have a 2 year contract. So it's not like everyone is buying iPhones instead of Touches, just because they are cheaper.

    Apple will update the iPod touch line and likely drop the price of the older model at the iPod refresh in September. I'm sorry that this is such a pain for you.

    Edit: Also, as alokg95 said, Apple can reap the benefits of a ridiculous monthly pricing plan, while keeping the base price attractive.
