iPod Classic Sells For A Hefty Price On Amazon
The 160GB iPod Classic is on offer for $495 from sellers Amazon, for instance, nearly double its original retail price of $260. More than 3,000 iPod Classic units are said to have been sold on eBay since October, while nearly 2,000 are currently listed for sale. The 160GB iPod Classic remains the highest capacity portable device Apple has ever produced. The current generation iPod touch maxes out at 64GB, while the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and the newer iPad's max out at 128GB. At the time it was pulled from shelves, the iPod Classic had gone 5 years without an update. Apple CEO Tim Cook said that the company was no longer able to source parts to build the device, and its sales numbers were not worth re-engineering with new components.
