Nice thread. Agreed on the iPod touch, but I still think it will stick to 256MB RAM. The iPod nano needs to get 32GB this refresh around, and I think it will happen. I also think a 3MP rear cam is going to be on the back of the touch this year, as well as a gyroscope and a high chance of a retina display and FaceTime camera.

Thanks! :D
I'm saying 512MB RAM because the iPod touch is marketed and thought of by Apple as a gaming device, and increasing the RAM to that of the iPhone 4 would make it function better as a gaming device with loading times and graphics. Plus, it's inexpensive and the RAM of the iPod touch has always been the same as the iPhone (first gen 128, second and third 256). Just my 2¢ though :p

Nice little post Ace! I agree, the RAM will most likely be bumped to 512MB. If it has been 256 for two gens than it must change.

Same here! When using an iPhone 4 demo at my closest AT&T I'm pretty sure my jaw dropped. Such clarity in text, home screen icons and webpages. Haven't seen video or photos, but I'm sure they would also be amazing. I viewed MacRumors and fully zoomed out I could still read all of the text, try THAT on a 320x480 display! :D

P.S. I'd say it would be a hard buy for me as well, but unfortunately I'm currently using a 1st gen touch, so any improvements are extreme ones. :)

ya, I should really to to an apple/AT&T store, and actually hold an iPhone 4 lol. I reguraly read macrumors on my iPod touch, and I don't even have to zoom in. And I'm not even wearing my glasses. You may need to get your eyes checked out or something lol...

I'm a first gen too, and I am sooooo looking forward to this update. It's and improvement on EVERYTHING! this will definately NOT be a hard buy for me.

My predictions for the iPod Touch 4:

A4 and 512MB/RAM because the iPod Touch's have always had the same processor and RAM specs as the iPhone, and having lower specs than the iPhone would mean either the apps wouldn't work as well on the iPod Touch (which Apple doesn't want) or that the apps wouldn't take full advantage of the iPhone 4 specs because the devs want it to be compatible with the 'Touch.

Gyroscope, because its main purpose is for gaming, and that's what the 'Touch is marketed as.

3MP rear-facing camera, because, well, it's going to have a camera, and the 3 gen prototypes had the iPhone 3G (2MP) camera.

Front facing camera with Facetime, because Steve jobs said "millions of Facetime devices by the end of the year" and the email based Facetime thingy.

Retina Display, maybe, since it is a media/gaming device

Microphone? Probably, unless they want to target Facetime to only deaf people :p.

iOS 4.1 with Game Center (is that what it's called?)...

802.11n WiFi, obvious update.

Aluminum back - They haven't update the 'Touch's design in forever, and have always had the chrome back. They love that chrome. But I hope they change it.

I agree with everything about the iPod Touch, but I'm going with the 512MB RAM and the 5MP camera.

I'm also still holding out for 3G. And they better get rid of the annoying chrome. Sure it looks nice, but scratches too easily and look's ugly after awhile.

Yup I'm thinking 512MB RAM as well, and hoping for that awesome 5MP camera, but I know in reality they probably won't give it to us until the 5th generation. I'd advise not holding your breath for 3G, that's a huge distinguishing factor between the iPhone and iPod touch.

Very well said. I'm going with 100% on the Retina Display, out of all the new features that is the one that would improve the iPod touch's gaming capabilities the most! :eek:
Plus, that leaked LCD/digitizer was very similar to the iPhone 4's, meaning it probably had a Retina Display. :)

1) iOS 4 for iPad- they always seed the upcoming update like a month before to developers. i think they will give us a preview and a date.

2) iTunes- they cant do cloud now if you have read articles on this site apple doesn't yet have the support from the music labels. they will probably say that its in the works and yada yada yada.

other than that i think you are spot on :D

The new devices will continue to be hugely hyped up until they are announced on the first.

On that day, Steve will announce something that half lives up to the expectations but doesn't really have everything we were all hoping for.

Following this, everyone will say that it's awful and pointless then when we finally have chance to get our hands on one, it will be another instant hit as you can guarantee it will be brilliant regardless of what it is or isn't.

Just like the iPad :D

Agreed. I'm trying to not set my expectations too high. I'm just hoping for more storage space. Anything else will be gravy. I have a feeling that it will be as similar to the iPhone 4 as possible just without the ability to make phone calls.

It seems like the first few Touch's have been mirror images of the iPhone but again, without the ability to make phone calls.

^ This.

Although I think Apple will do the same thing as last year, in terms of device pricing: $199 for an 8GB (or 16GB, not sure whether Apple wants to go that route) 3rd gen iPod touch, same as the current generation in terms of hardware; and then 32GB and 64GB 4th generation for $299 and $399, respectively.

I wish they threw in a GPS though.... I really want a GPS in my ipod. On another note, ill buy the new ipod when i return from canada on the 5th or so (currently visiting family)... I have the money, so ill buy the 32GB iPod touch 4, then sell my 32GB iPod touch 3, iOS 4.0, good condition. $225 seems fair. Lol, anyone want to buy it? :D SHSH is already backed up, iOS 4.0 and iOS 4.0.2 SHSH saved. Anyways.... I think it'll be:
"retina" AKA HD display
gyro (gaming device, cant leave that out :D)
A4 (doh!)
rear facing camera, maybe 3GS one or 3G one....
maybe front camera for facetime
802.11N (cant WAIT!!!!)

It's funny though, my father is retired but he knows a *****LOAD of crap about the tech industry. He's spoken at WWDC (years ago). He told me that iPad was always known as "project cr@pper" (steve wanted a small computer for the toilet :D). He tried to explain the concept of a iPod touch/iPhone to me a few years before it came out. He had prototype photos of the iPad in his office at work. He met steve, but said that he was a bit of a character (and a bit of an @ss). Funny times.... Well, its fun having this kind of parent.... lol.

I personally don't see an overwhelming appeal to FaceTime, I think a lot of people will end up never using it, but I may be wrong. :)

I completely agree with #1, that's why in my post I said:
"Beta release today to developers
Public release in late October"

As for #2, I don't really have that much confidence with cloud-integration coming to iTunes, but I think they may offer an option to stream our iTunes libraries from any computer. We'll see soon! :D

229, 299, 399 prices.
Well, Apple already said that $199 was really a magical price point where many people could afford it, so I don't they will raise the price back to $229. I'm saying $199 16GB 3rd gen, $299 32GB 4th gen and $399 64GB 4th gen.

...but the back gets scratched and smudged with finger prints no matter what you do to it.

The way I see it the Retina Display and gyro are necessary to make the iPod touch a better gaming device, which is what Apple's main focus of the iPod touch is. So those two are guaranteed. I'm really hoping for the same rear cam as the iPhone 4, but I know it'll probably just be the same one as the 3GS. :(

if you have been following engadget, there have been leaks of a front assemly that includes a front facing camera, cases with a hole for a rear facing camera and flash, and the screen was recorded to be almost exactly the same as the iPhone 4's (although not exactly the same, which is interesting). I think for sure we'll see at least a near-retina display, and the two cameras are just about a definite. Apple wants your iPod touch to replace your Flip.
edit: and since this is marketed as a gaming device, gyro is definite.

Yup, I love Engadget! I think the screen size on the leaked digitizer was the same as the iPhone 4, but the actual faceplate was a little bit thinner and shorter. I don't think there's a possibility of a "near-Retina" display for three reasons:

They wouldn't be able to advertise it as having the same Retina Display that the iPhone 4 has
If it went under 300ppi they wouldn't be able to call it a Retina Display, and it's already hugging the edge at 326ppi
They won't introduce another new iOS screen resolution because they want App Store fragmentation at a minimum

My 2¢ once again. :D

It really depends on what the prices will be. I want the fastest one but I don't need a lot of memory. I can make do with 16GB but I would love a 32GB version. It would be nice if I could buy a 16GB for $199 with the fastest speed over the whole line of iPod touches but I don't really want to be spending more than that.

My predictions:

Better battery life and wifi
Gyroscope

I'm think the rear camera will be as such since it would require lesser space and still set it apart from the iPhone

Well I think it'll be 3MP, but I think it'll have photo-taking capabilities as well. I don't think they would put the limited, video-only capability in the iPod touch.

3G for data and you're SOLD !!
Me too! I could see a 3G Touch becoming the iPad Nano with a yet to be announced 7" iPad mini in the works.
Apple would have a line that would pretty much own the tablet market
That's why they would do it- it's called vision and strategic planning.

It's funny though, my father is retired but he knows a *****LOAD of crap about the tech industry. He's spoken at WWDC (years ago). He told me that iPad was always known as "project cr@pper" (steve wanted a small computer for the toilet :D). He tried to explain the concept of a iPod touch/iPhone to me a few years before it came out. He had prototype photos of the iPad in his office at work. He met steve, but said that he was a bit of a character (and a bit of an @ss). Funny times.... Well, its fun having this kind of parent.... lol.

Wow, it's been tough but my son turned 10 in May. Told me he wanted to put his birthday $ toward an iPod Touch and be like his friends who already have them.. I had to walk him through a few threads on this board and the buying guide to get him convinced that it may not be such a great idea to run out and get one, seeing a few months from then there could be a newer version..

He stayed plugged in to the iPhone 4 release and I explained that the Touch has typically followed iPhone's lead with features et al.. He was convinced it'll be worth the wait.

I'm sure we won't be disappointed, would be happy with whatever updates that will be announced. Ordering it as soon as they are accepting orders!

Unfortunately, because of cost reasons & the precedent they set with the iPhone 3GS & iPhone 4, you can probably expect the $199 model to be a 16GB 3rd generation.

I agree with everything except the more expensive part, Apple is not one to raise the price of their products. I can't even think of a situation off the top of my head where they have done so.

How can the iPod Touch be upgraded with a gyroscope but denied a compass? It would be a waste to fit it with only one of these things. (Although, at the moment, less of a waste if it lacked a gyroscope since there aren't many gyroscopic applications yet.)

Honestly, everytime a new iPod Touch may be released, the words "camera" and "iPod Touch" are associated. I think the only thing that might come out of this is more RAM, an A4 processor, a new body disign and more battery life.

I'm hoping for the iPhone 4 design. After getting a good feel of it at an Apple Store a week ago, I definitely love the design. If they don't want to give it the glass back, then fine, but I just love the feel of it.

I'm thinking it'll take the iPhone 4's processor, RAM, Retina Display, built-in mic, two cameras (I'm really hoping for a 5MP camera, and thus making the unit thicker, but if it doesn't happen it won't be terrible), no 3G, iOS 4.1 (maybe), gyroscope+accelerometer, and probably what has become standard which is only the 32 and 64Gb versions, with a new 3rd gen 8Gb or 16Gb. I think prices will stay the same.

I don't see why, if iOS 4 is available for, and full functional on the iPod touch 3g, that GameCenter won't also be available for it. Not to mention the entry level iPod touch this year will probably be a 16GB 3g model. I can't see them running different software. Hardware difference, yes, but not software.

I think prices will stay the same.

I doubt that that entire list (maybe not even half) will come true. I think the only thing holding Apple back from giving all of that (aside from them doing very incremental upgrades) is the cost of parts, since they want profit over all else. They are a company that looks out for itself first, then the customers. We can always hope for all that though.

Never doubt that Apple can do something, or at the same time won't do something. Why can't a 2G Ipod touch get a background screen? How hard can that be? I think that they will keep that for the 4G. I don't care since my 1G is 95% dead, so an upgrade is a must.

It's something that's needed on there. It's a personal music player sure, but it's also much more than that. With all the apps, and social features it has, such as Twitter and Facebook, it would make sense to add a camera. It's something almost everyone wants on their iPod wants, plus the nano has one....If the nano can have one why can't the iPod Touch, a more high class and upper level product in their iPod line?

I would willing to sacrifice thickness and have a good 3 to 5MP camera. After holding the iPhone 4, I loved the weight of that thing. It was still extremely thin, and had a 5MP. Why can't we get that on an iPod.

Another thing I really need to for them to get rid of the Chrome. Make it look like the iPhone 4 or something close to it. The Chrome just pisses me off because it looks like **** soon after you get it.

As for prices, I wouldn't be surprised if they lowered the prices alittle. They for the most part have always lowered their prices of their IPODS (re: IPODS), since it's release. Even if they keep their prices of last year, putting the 16GB has $199 would be a safe bet. I sadly would have to go with a 32GB since I already past 16GB of music. (16.2 GB)

A drop in price for the 32GB wouldn't surprise me, since they always find ways to lower the price by costing the cost of production.

I guess we will see on Wednesday

Agreed. Technology is going new places. Back in the day, phones didn't have cameras. They also couldn't text. Everything gains new features over time; like how refrigerators now have screens and advanced settings. Ipods are no different. They too must grow and add on new items. But, I highly doubt that any prices will drop below last years. Technology gets cheaper to make over time, but adding too many features (camera(s), A4, 512RAM, more GB, Retina, new design) gets expensive very quickly.

If the iPod Touch 4G doesn't have Retina Display, A4 chip, Two cameras, 512 MB RAM, Better Battery Life, and Design change (no ****ing chrome back!), then I'm pretty sure Macrumors are going to be full of hatred for Apple, Brian Tong giving Bad Apple, Google news filled with critics and disappointment, etc etc. You know what happens.
Oh, and maybe iPod Touch 4 Hitler Parody?????:D

C'MON APPLE!!!! I'VE BEEN USING LISA AND MAC FROM THAT POINT ON! IT CAN'T TAKE MORE THAN 3 YEARS TO INCLUDE A CAMERA!

So is it going to be crushing waves of cheers or the internet going ablaze again? Personally, I think I'm going to enjoy today since regardless of what is/isn't included, I still win. Go 1G users! We have made it a long time (in technology standards).

I heard elsewhere that the ipod touch will not be available for sale for about a week. I thought that it was usually available on the same day as the reveal.

A fellow 1G user. Apple is forcing us to upgrade because of our inadequete RAM. I'm getting a Droid X if they don't loose that chrome back (UGLY) and give me at least two of the other fancy features that that guy listed.

Droid X's have an awesome feeling in the hand, I wish the new touch got a soft touch finish.

Call me a fanboy, but I will stick with Apple. I know that Droid is a worthy competitor and they have impressive features too. And I know Apple does things that defy reason from time to time. There is just something about it that works for me. Also, I like the smaller screens more than the big ones. I saw someone yesterday with a touchscreen phone (not sure which one). The screen was massive. I like the how the touch sits in my hand, and in the end, that's all that matters.

Two things.

1) Awesome multi smile effect. :D

2) After just getting off the phone with my local Apple store, according to what I was told (we don't know about any new products being announced at this time), is this their canned message? There is no way they could have a new product sitting in the back without knowing it. There are days where I curse their secrecy. Unfortunately, I'm aware that I'm playing right into their hands since the secrecy makes me even more interested.
