i personally dont think any apple products will go on- theres rarely any deals on apple in general it seems to sell itself-the cheapest i can find an ipod touch new was 99 for a 4th gen...

Apple pretty much sets its own prices, so you'll never find a new line discounted much, if any.
It depends what you want from your player, if its a games machine you want, then both will do that, depends whether you want android apps or apple apps, and your budget. Also with the apple device you're pretty much tied to iTunes....which is showing its age, and can be difficult to use/move about/ change.
But that said, they are lovely, usable machines.
If you have a phone that does that anyway, and you want a portable music player, then there are loads of much better, much cheaper devices with expandable memory, sandisk do cheaper, expandable devises, which sound better than the above makes. Look up "best mpv players"

Remember though that there are far less than there used to be - android phones are cheap and starting to come with lots of memory now- potentially you cold get 128gig with a memory card nowadays on a phone, so people are moving away from two devices, and you can pick up a 3GS iPhone for not much now.

basically was looking for an mp3 player with the dual camera thing, that can skype, what's app..if the samsung can do that then I'm definitely gonna get it.....looked at the ipod touch because of the face time, and italk features as additions...

I know what's app and skype are available in the google play store,i use both on a s2 phone. If the galaxy mp3 has full access to the play store, then yes it will. Sometimes devices control the content. Easily checked though.
facetime is good though, but the other person had to have an apple machine.

the ipod touch was on ebay - new for 99 i mean it was from a shop not a random seller- i will try and find a link for you- the samsung looks good though- personally i like to have all my products the same so i dont have to learn something new ;-)

thanks..thing is it has to be on Amazon as it's a gift certificate I'm using....

I'm really trying to weigh the pros and cons.....but I think I've missed out on the Samsung..time expired....hopefully something else along those lines come up....not sure if I read somewhere that they bring back the missed deals in about a week.....

Yep, this sounds defeatist, but apple set their price that they sell to everyone, and do not do special deals for anyone buying in bulk. That means if someone is selling one for 40 less than everyone else, they will be losing 40 per item, which they just won't do. Hey also do not need to do mad clearances of old stuff, because Apple products are in massive demand (3GS still on sale? That's older than the first Adroid phones!)
With other manufacturers, they might do a deal with a bulk buyer, or be clearing out old stock, so it could be genuine, but apple simply do not do this.
So, if you see an apple product more than a fiver cheaper that it is elsewhere, be extraordinarily careful....

I've heard that with ref to the Apple products...

I guess I'll wait and see if the Samsung becomes available again...

it's only the first day, so something else may come up..perhaps even a newer samsung version.....

If you scroll through the deals on there is a new 7th Gen Nano, a 4th Gen Touch and the new 5th Gen Touch... I have no idea if Amazon UK would give the same deals, but it's a possiblility I guess? ...It will be interesting to see what sort of discount they give.

Wonder if anyone can help me with this query about ipod touch. Looking for 4th generation model for my son, have found some 2nd hand models.

For the same generation (4th) ,and both 8gb, what is difference between models A and C, (25 difference in price) ?

Miss C says:
a and c?? is that graded as in the condition?
in reply to OP last year they repeated anything that didnt sell out- so im 80% sure the samsung will be repeated...just keep an eye out x

Just listed like this.
Apple iPod Touch 8GB 4th Gen, C
Apple iPod Touch 8GB 4th Gen, A

Maybe is condition, hadn't thought of that. Thought it was just some techno babble I didn't understand !

Miss C says:
i would take that as condition- only because i use ebay alot most of the techie bits and bobs tend to be graded- c is usually battered so bear that in mind..make sure you get to see it or get to see a good pic of the item x
