    This might make me sell my iPod touch and get an iPhone

    O2 has slashed £100 off the price of the iPhone in an attempt to drive sales on speculation that the mobile phone from Apple has performed badly in the tough UK market - and a new 3G model is incoming.
    The operator has announced a special offer on the 8GB iPhone which can now be purchased for just £169 until the 1 June 2008.

    The offer is available from tomorrow (Wednesday 16th) across all O2 iPhone tariffs, which start from £35 a month. The recently introduced 16GB iPhone keeps its £329 price tag.
    Heres the best bit for people not wanting a contract:

    What might interest many consumers put off by the phone's previous £269 price tag is that the way the iPhone is sold in the UK (bought first, then contract selected via iTunes) means anyone can now pick up the cheaper model during the promotion - without committing to a contract - and unlock it.
    Maybe some cash back for earlier buyers:
    We would imagine that O2, Apple and Carphone Warehouse will offer a money-back deal to those who have purchased the phone at the previous £269 price in the last 30 days, as is Apple's usual policy.
    And speculation is arising about a new 3g enabled iphone2 being released:

    These price cuts are fueling speculation, already rife in the blogosphere, that Apple is planning to introduce the next-gen, 3G iPhone 2 as soon as June (when the promo runs out, incidentally) and this is a stock clearing exercise.
    I reckon i could get £169 for my ipod touch if i stick it on ebay, plus ive been needing a new phone. This works out great

    Lol, yeah. Unfortunately it isnt available in the US. but if it was the price tag would be $340 (£169) which is still quite steep.
    Ive decided im going to sell my iTouch and get this, my birthday is coming up so i might even get this as a present. And id definetly jailbreak it to unlock the sim, (i have an o2 sim card anyway) but i dont want to pay a contract.

    There is most likely a 3G iPhone coming out anyway.

    And this already happened in Germany, they dropped it to 99 euros

    No problem. Those are the two main sites. Id say jailbreaking an ipod touch is easier than putting cfw onto a PSP.
    One cool app for it is the new notes add on, cant remember its name sorry but its handwriting recognition so you just write the letters with your finger and it types them in for you. ive been playing with it in class all day

    3G iPhone was announced on monday, and can be bought at an Apple store.
    I dont know, i personally would rather just save money and buy the old one. I dont really use 3G services a lot...

    because it is ub3r c00l!!!

    Once an iphone is hacked its basically a small computer. It can do lots, and its handy for picking up wifi points and going on AIM/MSN etc... Using the Appolo IM app.

    Its a ultra portable mini computer multimedia device
