Is it a good deal ?

What other options do I have ? Considering that I will be trading my soul to Apple.

It is available on eBay for a lot lesser. Around 13.5k-14k.
If you want another MP3 player, get Cowon J3, if you are looking for only SQ. iPod is no match for J3. I had Touch 4G once, Nano 3G, and Sony A844, but none can be compared to Cowon J3. It is awesome. :D

I bought one IPod 4G 32GB from eBay for Rs. 13,750 in May. And it was a genuine product. You can always check the feedback rating for any seller to confirm that he is selling original items.

yeah the only real "option" for an ipod touch is a next gen ipod touch. I wish the 4th gens came in 8GB versions tho.

Will it be priced @16k ?
It will be priced mostly 20k(32GB), the same price at which the current iPod Touch 4G costs in official Apple stores.

How is iPod classic 160GB ?
With iPod classic you won't get access to the huge iOS App store.
As aniket said if you are more in music then you can have a look at Cowon alternatives.

^^Guess I better wait then. Not liking anything from Cowon.

Well, you should read any audiophile forum, and read the reviews of any Cowon player. Anybody looking for the best audio experience in the consumer range is always suggested Cowon PMPs. The Cowon J3 has a cult following, and is regarded as one of the best audio player out there.

Cowon is yet to release a true successor to the J3. I am waiting for that. :p

@ Faun, do you really want access to the app store and to play games, use apps on the iPod? If you think you can do without that, a lot of people on head-fi.org have said that the latest iPod Classic has pretty good SQ.

Also why aren't you liking anything from Cowon? I mean I didn't get that. Looks wise? Or did you audition a Cowon and did not like it?

Cowon J3 can play a vast array of file formats, something the iPod Touch can't.

16k at this moment is no brainer deal. I got my own iPT4 64GB for 17.7k from USA last October. Ask to buy one for you too if anybody is coming from USA that will be best possible deal and you can get your iPT 32GB for 14k+ or if you can wait then wait for 15days may be Apple is coming up with 5th gen iPod Touches with 3G data facility.

A friend got me the Cowon J3 16GB model from Korea for 8.7k only, and I am simply amazed by it. Coupled with my Klipsch X10i, it is audio nirvana. :)
 
For Music quality there is no match for Cowon J3 . I agree to that .

Add games , Apps and you have Ipod as a better product !

If someone is satisfied with the Audio Quality of iPod Touch, then it is no problem. I was not, so I sold it after using it for 2 weeks to get the J3. Even my Sony A844 sounds better than the iPod. I have been bestowed with pretty good ears, and I can make out small differences between different music outputs. Right now, I own an iPod Nano 3g, Sony Walkman A844 and Cowon J3 mp3 players. And Brainwavz M3, Klipsch S4, Sennheiser CX300II, Sennheiser HD 437, Sennheiser HD 448 and Klipsch X10i earphones and headphones. And Fiio E5 and Fiio E7 Amps. But if you are not that much into the SQ, then you should get the iPod.
