I think this might me a good price for this, I am sure you will tell me as I am not as up to date with these 3rd generation prices but seems cheapest around.

Can't post picture on this.

EDIT; see below, quote; It says free BBC stuff expires on 24th December on the web page (even though showing as options)

Are any of the half price special offers worth having please? (new to this)

As I am new to ipods can anyone tell me if either of the half price offers with this worth having, half price silicone case twin pack or headphones, thanks.

Thanks OP

After trudging round various town centres looking for an instore bargain you find this cracking deal and was in stock at my local STORE!!!!

I was just about to settle for the 8gb as I didnt want to spend over £200, good timing OP

I'm confused by these... 3G suggests mobile connectivity but this isn't a phone, so does this just have a SIM?... what's the running costs of it... do you need a contract for the 3G or is it PAYG (or even free!)

3g is third generation - its not an iphone

So it's not 3G in terms of mobile connectivity?

The 3G you refer to means (in this case) 3rd Generation.In other words its the 3rd version of the iPod Touch.

nope - its just an ipod touch! not a phone

I think 3G in this case is referring to the 3rd generation (latest version).

IPOD touch is more a mini gaming device and has no camera/mobile phone functionality. It however has bluetooth which can be used to connect to wireless networks for internet access

So it's not 3G in terms of mobile connectivity?



No, it's 3G as in Third Generation = The third version of the iPod Touch. :thumbsup:

lucky for me i can get it for £180 as i work with argos and can use my discount :):)

No those deals are still overpriced even at half price, the £199.99 is however, the best price I've seen for the 32gb model.

Got one of these before Christmas for around £204 (after Quidco from Dixons) and it is a great gadget.

If you do go for one or intend to, start getting the '12 days of Christmas' free downloads from ITunes right away.

It was this price before Xmas as well

It can be used as a phone if you download the Skype app and use the microphone head phones which i think you get with it.

Apple iPod touch 32 GB - NEW
3rd generation
Apple's 3rd generation iPod touch puts multimedia at your fingertips and in your pocket with its compact, touch-control design! The new iPod touch features the latest version of the iPod touch 3.1...

£ 200.60 Inc. VAT

IN STOCK

Hummm I think in early 2010 a new Iphone will be announced, and normally that means an update to the ipod touch line, could be discounted to get rid of stocks. I can't find any of these in stock near Peterborough.

3G = 3rd Generation. No mobile connectivity.

i soooo want one of these but no mobile connectivity it the only thing holding me back. Guess Iphone is the only way but my contract still has 11 months left

Also bear in mind this touch is a true 3G variant of the touches
Ie:
Better processor, voice control ect (along the same lines as the 3GS iphone)

The 8gb variant doesnt have these improvments

Heat from me!!

no it wasnt

Either Argos has a lot of stock or they are clearing inventory. Judging by the amount of stores that actually have them in stock, it would seem more likely that they are clearing inventory for a new model or they know of an imminent price cut.

When the iPod Touch was last refreshed in September, I remember reading an article saying that the next refresh might be in January 2010 and have a camera (but that could just be rumour and speculation as Apple is notoriously secretive). The previous models have always been released in September.

It's a great bargain at £199 though - even if a new model does come out.

H+R added.

Yes it was this price for a couple of days before xmas then they put it up again before dropping it, go figure.

But did you get the Bush dock?

its this price now does it really matter what it was last week? heat added

great find, argos also does 3% cashback from topcashback, shame that peterborough store doesnt have one for pick up, availbale only for home delivery

Found that one a USA website for £169, anybody tried international shpping for an Ipod ? here is the link, pls let me know if this is fine to order from USA?

Since you work for Argos, kindly tell us who bought it before Christmas when the mini Alba ipod dock will be available. I would be forever grateful:

Next release of iphone will most likely be that of previous years, which is around june. The ipods are updated every year in september.

Can't wait for my ipod touch to arrive. Bought it from very for £187 with £15 cashback.

Just a warning that today's freebie on the 12 days of Xmas is a Robbie Williams video. You might want to delay buying one of these until tomorrow....

excuse my ignorance but what does it mean by free BBC downloads. I thought you could download progrmas from iplayer for free anyhow.

Yeah you can..

Great price for this.. and this is the newer 3rd gen model there isn't a newer model out until september next year.

This uses Wifi not bluetooth to connect to the internet which was mentioned in an earlier post..

You can use Truephone or skype to talk to people via the Touch's headphones and built in mic, to other skype users when you are in the vicinity of wifi networks, which nowadays is almost everywhere, Mcdonalds, Pubs, Shopping precints, Cafe's..

Superb games machine with a raft of new games being brought out for the newer Ipod touch, this makes a damn good media player too, with my Blurays converted onto the touch, Transformers looks amazing. Surfing the net is a very good experience on the touch and is far better than your standard mobile phone..

Couple of brilliant little games I'm playing at the moment are

Gold miner
traffic rush
cows in space
GTI Racing
Assasins Creed
All available on iTunes

Apple have an 'event' at the end of January which could mean new kit and updates to existing lines. However if you buy the Touch today its still a great device with only a camera, battery life and brightness the likely upgrades. Judging by most devices that have a camera added to them this will only be an 'extra' not a replacement for any existing camera you have.
So safe to buy even with a possible upgrade coming.

I think they'd dedicate the event to the islate.
