Hi can anyone please tell me the difference between these two models of IPT. I am looking to buy one for my son and as we are going oversease, I have looked on the Duty Free website and the MA627ZP/A is $384aud and the MA627ZP/B is $453aud. They are both 16gb. Please help

    the difference between A and B is the software update comes with B.

    Thanks heaps for that. Would you suggest buying the A version and waiting for the July upgrade. My son is only 10 and will only really use it for the music and video components.

    Welcome to the Forums!

    In that case, definitely get version /A. Sounds like you don't need the apps pack, and if you change your mind, worst case scenario is you'd need to buy the apps in addition to the US$10 July Upgrade (it may be included, may not be, there's no official word yet). Even in that worst case scenario, it would be US$30 ($20 for the apps pack, $10 for the v2.0 upgrade) more, which is less than the difference between the /A and /B in your first post. But you likely would not need even those.

    Hope this helps...

    Only for music and video. What a waste of money. for $100 less you can get an iPod Nano 8GB or for $50.00 less you can get and 80GB Classic.

    I bought mine for use as a PDA and for the internet.
