They better fix the scratchable screen before they releases something like this.

They better fix the scratchable screen before they releases something like this.Even if they produce something totally scratch-proof, the problem you're still going to have with a touchscreen for videos is dirty great finger marks all over the screen. A nice idea, but not very practical.

Just a fan mock-up, nothing more.

That is what a stylus is for, eliminates finger contact.

If you get a touchscreen, you're going to have to treat that thing with kid gloves. I don't think it will be very durable or rugged compared to the current or past iPods. I mean who is anyone kidding...would you take a touchscreen PDA and throw it in a backpack without a cover and expect it to not get scratched, let alone broken?

Fingerprints don't bother me so much. I se the value in your feedback, but I really don't think it would hurt sales too much. The mock up is exactly what I'd like to own! Sign me up!

Apple will NOT use a stylus. Why? Two reasons:

1. It's too much trouble for the user. Every time they want to pause a song they have to get out a stylus?

2. Everyone looses them within the first week.

It's just not practical.

I'd hate to lose a stylus that shook loose.

Am I the only one who thinks it's relatively easy to make a screen that won't show fingerprints? Something with a matte finish that's more durable than a laptop screen, a little rougher perhaps?

You should have put "Mock-up" in your thread title. I was actually expecting real ones.

It needs a stylus. And I can only hope it would come with some sort of extra protection for the screen.

hold on guys. ARE YOU SERIOUS?:eek: do you really think Apple would use a stylus?! :eek:

How silly would that look?

I know these are speculations but putting a stylus in the fray is pretty disturbing.

Would love one of these things and i won't let it get hurt!

But i'm not sure if it should become the main iPod model

(and how would you 'click' on the click wheel

I don't think it would be that hard. If anyone could do it it would be Apple. Also, I think Apple to be one of the more "professional" companies who would make sure it wouldn't show finger prints just to keep their image up. If Apple could jump to touch screen for the next iPods it would show how much they are above the rest of the competition.

Man, if they could pull off something like that it would be frickin' sweet.

I like the discussion this rumour has caused. It's just resounding everywhere.

This could be the ultimate player. Whatever Apple release next, I pray they do something about the outer plastic. It would be terrible owning something like this but worrying about scratching the hell out of it.

If it is touch sensitive, they are limited to what protection they can use on the outer surface? Something like mobile phone screens would be great. I fear it'd be a flimsy, PDA style screen. :(

I agree. I like it, but it is totally impractical.

Exactly! It gives Apple a lot more money when people turn up at the Apple Store to buy replacements. Look at the caps for the iPod shuffle. I think the Apple Store in the UK sells them for around 8, but you get three, should you lose them again. The same idea with the Dock adapter needed for the iPod universal dock, if you need another one, you have to pay 6 for 3 instead of 2 for one.

They make a lot of money on little things that you need... ;)

Wowzers.

The second set looks much more pleasing. I'd do one.

Not really sure how good a touch screen would be in everyday use, but if Sir Ive and the SJ RDF can combine to make it so. . . I'll buy it. Until then, I'll keep my Gen 4 (I think, its a B&W screen, 12 hour, 20Gb model) happly. :cool:
