Good news for iPhone app developers: Apple (AAPL) is again giving away a free iPod touch (after rebate) to students who buy a new Mac.
While this won’t help Apple’s margins, it means there’s going to be a bigger iPod touch install base to buy more iPhone and iPod touch apps.
Apple sold about 3 million iPod touches last quarter. It’s sold 16 million all-time through the end of March — a huge sleeper hit, considering all the praise Apple’s gotten for selling 21 million iPhones.
