iPod prices dropped; iPod Photo, no more.

iPod prices dropped; iPod Photo, no more.

ipodsEarly today, Apple has announced that it has (again) reshuffled it’s entire line of iPods. The price of iPod Shuffle 1GB has been slashed by $20, iPod 60GB is down by $50 and the Special Edition 20GB U2 is now $329 ($20 less). I am sure that local prices will follow suit and official iPod stores around the metro will be holding another iPod sale (probably with BPI SIP).


Likewise, Apple has now dropped the word “Photo” altogether making the entire series with color screen and able to view photos. The iPod 30Gb is no more while the old 20GB has been upgraded to color at the same old price. The U2 version has now a color screen and able to view pictures. Related story from iPodLounge.

It’s kinda irritating now that Apple constantly upgrades the iPod generation so quickly. It keeps me wanna buy a new one (now craving for the 20 GB U2). My iPod Photo 40 GB is now 2 generations obsolete and I only bought it last March thru a BPI sale. I already changed iPods 3 times in the last 6 months!

In the Philippines, old generation iPods have actually been on sale and cna be had between Php18,000 to Php20,000. I have also seen iPod nanos selling for about Php12,500 for the 2GB version and around Php15k for the 4GB version. The iPod video is also for sale at around Php19,5000. Check out your iPod dealers.

    Naks, dami pera pambili ng ipod ah! ;) Hehe. I just hope their price adjustments do reflect positively here in Manila. Our iPods are just overpriced!

    Kung puede nga alng i-swap eh. Buti na lang nabenta ko yung mga luma ko kaya ako nakabili ng bago. Yung iPod mo, anong generation?

  3. markku says:

    Yung gamit namin ng kapatid yung 2nd gen na mini, yung 6gb. Ok pa naman. But the colored iPods are surely nice.

  4. yuga says:

    I think kung naging colored lang dati yung iPod mini and able to view photos, it would end up as the best-seller.

    kawawa nmn ng mga singer artist in the future pag ung ipod become cheaper..mawawala na ung cd..tapos ung mga songs can be downloaded over internet for free..i had 40gb ipod..pwede i stored ung lahat ng songs ng isang music store

  6. markku says:

    Cesar, don’t blame the iPod, or at least don’t pass the blame to it entirely. It’s also about people’s desire to respect the work and livelihood of others. Everyone ought to support the artists or music they enjoy and listen to. ;)

    @ cesar

    Besides, these singers and records owners get a cut for every legit downloads from iTunes.

    Even before the iPod was made people were already downloading mp3s, so I don’t think there is a significant contribution there.
