At Apple's recent press event no information regarding the European launch of the iPhone was forthcoming, other than Pascal Cagni, Apple Vice President of Europe, Middle East and Africa saying "it's coming".

However, the new US price of the iPod touch 16GB ($399) is the same as the iPhone 8GB ($399). The iPod touch 16GB is £269 in the UK. So is this going to be the price of the iPhone?

Because of the different network structures and deals, it's impossible to say for sure. But it certainly sounds like a resonable proposition. It's certainly less than the £349/£399 I was planning to spend.

All Apple needs to do now is get it on the shelves and I'll have one.
