The iPod touch will cost S$278 including GST.

"With big advancements like the A8 chip and the 8 megapixel iSight camera, customers can experience next-level gameplay, take even more beautiful photos and enjoy their favourite music, TV shows and movies," said Greg Joswiak, Apple's vice president of iPhone, iPod and iOS Product Marketing.
