iPod prices in Bangkok will, like most electrical goods in Thailand, vary slightly depending on where you go to buy them and how well you can bargain the price if buying from a stall in a mall such as MBK or even Pantip Plaza which is probably the best know IT and gadgets mall in Bangkok, if not the whole of Thailand
As with most new electrical items going on sale in Thailand, iPod prices in Bangkok will be at a premium (but then again, most apple products are). The only thing you can expect is maybe a slight reduction in cost when buying from privately owned stalls. Prices at Apple stores, iStudio stores and malls will all be fixed price.
An 8gb 4th generation iPod touch from a Thai website called To Home (www.tohome.com) is selling - as of the 24th January, 20100 - for 7,900 Baht and includes VAT.

Obviously, the amount of space / memory you go for will depend on the depth of your pockets but 13,900 Baht for a 64 Gb unit is expensive. In the UK, the 64 Gb version retails at around £334 which is the cost of a decent entry level laptop and would be considered a decent amplifier of a hi-fi system.
With the iPhone, iTouch and iPad all getting very close to each other, we'd be surprised if there was much of a market for something so expensive that can do what the iPhone can do, or most smart phones for that matter.
Anyway, when you come to Bangkok, or Thailand and you want to pick up the iPod Touch, then rest assured, you can.
There are a few fakes doing the rounds but no-one will try to sell you a fake iPod Touch as an original. The "fakes" carry a different name, sell at a much lower price but look very similar.
We've not tested any of the "fakes" but we're sure they do a decent job of playing music. You just won't get the quality screen, battery life or the smooth operating system that comes with the iTouch.
