Still pining for an iPod? Maybe you’ve enjoyed the fruits of Apple before. Maybe your current device doesn’t have WiFi, has a cracked screen, or is waterlogged from a wild ride in the toilet (it happens!). Well, today may be your lucky day.
Today’s Hot Deal is the Apple iPod touch. Best Buy has the 8GB model in black or white for just $174.99. This is the current model, which typically sells for $25 more. As a nice little bonus, that discounted price also includes free shipping.
Perfect for anyone without an iPhone, this popular portable features WiFi support, HD video recording, the FaceTime camera, and that familiar multi-touch interface. Promising up to 40 hours of playback (7 if you’re doing video), the 8GB model can store about 1,750 songs, 10,000 photos or 10 hours of video. Of course, you can also stuff it with apps and enjoy gaming, streaming AV or just a little home control, from anywhere with a WiFi connection.
If you miss out on the Best Buy deal, the same price is also available at Amazon (with free shipping). Apple products don’t drop in price too often, so this may be a good chance to start some early holiday shopping or even treat yourself.
