1,2). $400 is way better than $600. I do think they should have sold the remaining 4GBs for $300 and gotten even MORE people!
I'm waiting for Apple to update their website with all the new info.
P.S. Found the 4GB under clearance at $300.

I think they're lowering the price to aggressively target holiday gift shoppers. For the record, though, Dieter has floated the idea that there's a hardware refresh in the works.

ATT is probably pissed as the Touch will probably hurt iPhones sales, and moreover reduce the number of users switching to ATT from other carriers. Now many will get the Touch and stick with their existing carrier.
It bugs me the new iPods still don't have SDHC card slots or removable batteries. 16GB is a lot but with SD slots, you get so much more flexibility.
I'll stick with my Treo that has EVDO, a removable battery, bluetooth, SDHC and plays most any audio/video codec - oh and thousands of 3rd party apps.

I think Apple lowered the iPhone price in order to flood the market with iPhones. All the "early adopters" who wanted one bought one; now it's time to sell to the rest of the market.
I really really hope Apple brings out a 16 GB or 32 GB model by the end of the year. I don't need 3G with municipal wifi, but I really want to be able to download more than one movie at a time.

Possible that the iPhone will release with 3G in Europe in the next couple of months but I have my doubts (see Steve Jobs' comments on bulk and battery life of 3G phones).
