    hello.

    I ordered a 16GB touch as my 15GB 3rd gen is currently on the fritz. Soon after, i joined this site and saw the news about the SDK release and possibly a price drop, so i canceled my order, hoping that today would be the day....but it wasn't.

    So i ask you... How probable (when) would the next price drop happen?

    and

    Should i go ahead and buy now or wait for SDK release or price drop?

    THANKS!!!!!

    Theres an announcement on the front page about why it won't happen. It's just speculation, but read it.

    I'd say just get it. If you're always waiting for a price drop/improvement, you will never actually buy it. You should read Complexis' post on why he doesn't think that the price drop will come any time soon.

    Besides, it would have been announced today if there was going to be one, and it wasn't.

    Exactly what i was going to say. There is no point to wait, if you wait your just going to keep waiting because something better will come out all the time.

    I've had my 16gb touch since Dec? and I love it. The new ones don't make me regret it either.

    Hi all. I'm in a similar position, want to get one but can't decide when. If I buy one this week what version of firmware is it likely to come with? I assume 1.1.3, which can be jailbroken fairly easily right?

    I utilized the free engraving, and got

    " iBelong to
    Nelson Mead " (my name)

    Apple says that it should be sent out within a day, then about 5 days shipping. Anyone know if this is an accurate assumption?
