Apple has announced a small price cut for its video iPod range in the UK. The 30GB model, previously priced at £189, is now available for £179 while the top-end 80GB video iPod has had it’s price cut from £259 to £189. Prices for Apple’s iPod nano and iPod shuffle ranges remain the same.

Macworld UK says that as iPod industry watchers don’t expect Apple to launch new models until the summer, the price cuts are likely to be a reflection of the gradual strengthening of UK currency against the US dollar.
