Apple Slashes Prices of iPods Ahead of Today's Event

In anticipation of the almost certain introduction of new iPods today, Apple has dropped prices on existing iPod models:
The 8GB iPod touch now costs $189, a $40 discount, while the 16GB model is now $249, a $50 reduction. However, big savings are to be had for the 32GB model, now $279, a whopping $120 price cut. Other iPods saw cuts, too. The 8GB iPod nano has dropped to $129, down from $149, and the 16GB model is now $149, previously $199. The iPod Classic, rumored to be phased out today, is now $229, down from $249.
I'd hold off getting any of these until after the big announcement today. There's a good chance a 64GB iPod Touch with built-in camera will be introduced today.

The event starts at 10 AM PST / 1 PM EST. Here is a roundup of rumors about today's event and you can follow it via liveblogging here and here. Sadly, it increasingly looks like no tablet will be announced today. I hope that's wrong.
