iPod touch (iTouch) - buying from USA?

  stugra 12:44 17 Mar 2008

I am looking at buying an iPod touch when I go to the USA this year. I just wanted to check if there was any good reason not to buy it from the USA? I am thinking of connectivity - wifi - power options etc.

I assume that it will be charged by USB or I can get a USA plug adapter for the mains charger. I am also assuming that the wifi will not be any different over here.

I appreciate any comments if I have missed anything?

Many thanks.

when i got my ipod i thought about doing the same as you but at the airport i found that it was only £10 more at the duty free. good job i bought it at dixons when i got it home it was faulty but local dixons just did an exchange. £10 well spent i think.
it pays to shop around and you have to look at if anything goes wrong with what you have bought

Thanks ^wave^ for your comments.

I will have to contemplate the £30 saving on that one - but assuming the price is worth saving, are there any other issues such as the items in my top post?

my sister bought my ipod from 5th Av New York.
They have international warranty so you should be able to get it repaired anywhere if required.
You don't get a charger....just USB.
The software is downloaded from the net.
