    (in case some of you aren't familiar with Apples pricing policy)

    You can buy any Apple product for the exact same price anywhere you go. There are no discounts, not black friday sales, no nothing. An iPod is an iPod is an iPod. Whether it be Best Buy or the Apple Store.

    I wonder if there is anything unique about these wal-mart ones. If not, I am certainly surprised to see them being sold for 2 dollars cheaper then the standard price.

    here ya go!

    I lol'd.

    I think it is an asian knockoff. The Slide part is completely different, saying Slide to Lock and silliness.
    The home button also features a circle, as oppose to the square.

    I mean, it'd be shocking if it were true, and I'm not gonna make any allegations here, but it just looks straight up too silly to be real.

    I can't help but think of that 'Japanese girls love tiny things' skit from Family Guy.

    Secondly, I would think that apple would have Nano-ized the iPod Touch with that kind of technology instead of its latest iteration.

    Lastly, the phone lacks apple's love of aethetics. The "Slide to Lock" bar is in block letters, and downright ugly. And a slide to LOCK? There wouldn't be that large a difference between the iPhone and an iPhone mini for the mini to have a completely different OS function like that, especially with the rather recent release of 2.2

    I wonder if they will require the usual 2-yr contract?

    I find it hard to believe that apple would manufacture a specific model ($99 4 gig model) for a specific retailer and not for its brick and motor retail stores, that is, unless they plan on stocking this model in Apple stores as well. I also wouldn't think that apple would want to re-release a storage capacity that it has already discontinued over a year ago now but who knows.

    @ boe_dye, if you go into any costco or sams club, you will find apple products such as the ipod touch for a few bucks cheaper then what apple demands it to be sold at. Im not sure if said retailer eats the difference.
