Cleve writes ” The price drops are likely to make some price spacing for the newer 3G iPhones that are expected to drop later this year – perhaps with the tablets.”

As per the website, the new prices are expected to be:

8Gb iPod Touch $199 8Gb iPhone – $299
16Gb iPod Touch $299 16Gb iPhone – $399
32Gb iPod Touch $399

Gmail gets IMAP Support

Gmail has officially released IMAP Support for users. IMAP is a two way communication mechanism unlike POP. Earlier Gmail was only supporting POP. This meant that syncing the read mails was not possible from your favorite email client to Gmail Server. However, from now on, this two way syncing is possible. The list of Gmail’s supported email clients goes as Thunderbird, Eudora, Outlook Express/2003/2007 and Windows Mail, Mail.app as well as the iPhone.

IMAP

Official Gmail Blog states ” As we roll out the feature over the next couple of days, you will be able to use Gmail at work, in your car, or just about anywhere on any device, and actions you take will be automatically synced with Gmail on the web (and remember it works the other way too: anything you do on the Web will be seen on your phone or in your mail client). Just click the “Forwarding and POP/IMAP” tab in your Gmail “Settings” and turn it on. (Psst. If you don’t see the “IMAP” in the “Forwarding and POP/IMAP” tab, then check back soon. We are giving it to users as fast as we can).

With IMAP support coming into Gmail, users can easily

  • Read their Email on Gmail web interface.
  • Using their favorite email client mark a mail as Read
  • Archive it using iPhone and finally
  • View the relevant changes on their Blackberry. 🙂

Isn’t this exciting ?

The below embedded video gives a step by step process of setting up Gmail IMAP on the iPhone in about a minute.
