In light of today's announcement of a new $229 8gb iPod Touch, Apple has cut prices on refurbished iPod Touch models. The 8GB model is $179 (a $20 drop), the 16GB model is $219 (an $80 drop) and the 32GB model is $319 (an $80 drop). This iPod Touch is similar to the first-generation iPhone but without the monthly AT&T bill (and the phone capability). It has the same touchscreen interface, 3.5" widescreen display and wi-fi web browsing plus direct wi-fi downloads from iTunes. It has the YouTube button, calendar and photo application. Shipping is free and sales tax is charged in most states. These refurbished models carry the exact same one-year Apple warranty that new models have.
