    i saw the new 3g iphone for 199

    i was wondering if i should wait for the 8gb to drop down to 199

    im looking to buy the ipod touch this summer
    there is a used one on craigslist for 200 that seems to be in decent condition

    i was wondering should i wait to see if there is a price drop this summer
    or should i just buy the decent one on craiglist

    Doubt it'll drop. For the iPhone, your forced into a contract. That's how they make their money.

    the prices are not expected to drop b/c then all the other ipod prices would drop and apple doesnt want that so, dont expect the price for an ipod touch to drop anytime soon. I would say buy the used one

    why would he buy a used one when he can wait a little bit and get a brand new one for most likely the same price i really dont see any logic in that

    what makes u so sure apple is going to drop prices of the iPod Touch?
    do you have any proof?
    if theyre gonna drop prices, it'll probably be in Sept-Dec time.

    I was excited when I finally purchased my iPod Touch (happy people?!??!?!? i didnt call it the iTouch).

    Anyways, since the 3g iphones will come out pretty soon, I say hang in there to see if there's any price drops in July. Apple always surprise us with the price drops so your guess is as good as anyone elses.
    Oh yeah, and you will have people wanting to get rid of their iPod Touch or the iPhone (first generation) to get the new 3g iPhone.
    Another month, and you can make a more informed decision.

    Cheers.
