Seems to make the Touch appear somewhat of an 'interim' model, destined for the 'mpc fly' and element recycle bin. Perhaps this is why they have used the same top chassis design for the Live?
Or of course, that could suggest that the MPC Live is going to cost more than $900. If it were $1500, I can't see too many people buying it. In the UK that would be nearly £1500 inc VAT, three times the price of a Touch.
They won't put it back up, either discontinue it or keep the price at $599.
