Nope, no chance at all. As others have mentioned, Apple claims that this is because it requires an A5 chip, but I don't quite believe this since the language processing is passed off to the Apple servers (hence the internet connection required). Mostly, I think it's pretty clear that they see this as the big differentiating feature of the 4S and I'd say there's zero chance of Siri coming to the iPod touch for at least several years. Beyond that, who knows, but I suspect they want to keep it on the new iPhone only for a while.

Again, it WILL get Siri. See my post on page 4.

I wouldn't mind a different color iPhone than black or white, maybe something in between.

Also, am I the only person who thinks the white is ugly?
Yes, I have a white iPad 2 and I would not trade it for a black one ever. White to me just looks more mac like where I normally associate black with pc and android and cheap plastic.

Try same here but I do take issue that now Apple is fragmenting their line with A5 and A4 when it comes to games. I would seem that the iPod touch will be regulated to lower spec from now on. It will never come close to the cash cow called iPhone. designer will have to take into consideration for the first time to lower specs on some of apples products.

No A5, lame.
I don't understand the Touch. Apple says it is the most popular hand held game platform in the world - so we did not update it just unlike every other year. Battery could not do it? What was the reason. I am worried they plan to drop it which would be a disaster I think. I really love ours.

The most reasonable explanation that I've seen put forth is that Apple has supply constraints on the A5 chip, so they have deliberately held back any design upgrades.

The A5 actually has a smaller TDP (uses less power) than A4 SoC so battery performance wouldn't be an issue.

I am not concerned about the future of the iPod touch. Apple sells about two iPod touches for every three iPhones, and the two devices have very different demographics (iPod touch 13-24 yr. olds; iPhone 25-49 yr. olds). The iPod touch owners are future iPhone buyers: Steve said it himself that the iPod touch was training wheels for the iPhone.

I have to say, for some reason the white looks much better on the iPod Touch. I think that the white on the front of the iPods looks much better than a completely white iPhone. Maybe it's because the chrome back just makes it looks awesome; almost retro. If you squint... While imagining a Clickwheel... You can almost see the past. Kind of.

I'd without a doubt get a white one if I was in the market for an iPod.

I really strongly recommend that you get that checked out. It's all well and cute until one day you realize it's skipped two beats this time, and then three…

Heading to the Apple store now to see these for myself. Might even pick one up right now if I'm tempted enough.
