It’s still more expensive than in the US. £100 pounds (1GB iPod Nano) converted is $184.99, while the same nano is $149.00 on the Apple store website.

I think VAT at 17.5% in the UK makes quite a difference in any comparison to US pricing. Any price cut should be welcomed! Although I’ve got a Nano because of it’s handy size, I still find the best price/performance comes from the 30Gb 5G iPod - £195 from Amazon UK. Makes a 4Gb Nano ridiculously expensive.

I’ve noticed that German prices have also been cut. Further investigation may show that it happened in most European countries where Apple Computers is the distributor (not Apple IMC, like in most CE countries, e.g. Poland).

Price cuts on products are usually done to start to purge stock prior to a new model release.

I wonder if this indicates Apple is about to come out with a new Nano.

Personally, I am waiting for them to release a larger capacity Nano before I buy one.  I would like at least 10gb, or larger.
