I think the new Nano is fine. Only issue is that capacity; I was thrilled when I found out about video playback, but 16GB won't store much.

Agreed, as I have already posted in another iphone5/ipod touch 5g thread, I believe that new ipad mini will replace the ipad 2, and seeing that the ipod touch is already $299, and that Apple does not want to compete among its own products, the ipad mini will be priced in the $349.99-$399.99 range.

I personally was waiting to get the nexus 7 until I read rumors of the ipad mini coming out to COMPETE with the new sub $200 tablets such as the Nexus 7, well, so much for competition now since the ipad mini will cost nearly as much as a full ipad. Now its between a Nexus 7 and an ipod touch, meh tough choice. I would be utterly shocked if the ipad mini was released at $299, it would be nice, but since it's Apple, I highly doubt that will happen.

You're absolutely right, and add a 2005 iPhone prototype to the mix. I should have edited my post.

Agreed!. The design team ought to be ashamed of such a design!. A knockoff looking product that is not as portable as the previous model. Putting video is plainly stupid and those round icons ?!. Yuck!.:confused

If their marketing people think this way then they are way more stupid than anybody thinks. Buyers are not this stupid, they have choices in the market and can make those choices fairly well themselves maybe a mistake or two here and there but they learn very quickly. The upsell concept does not work unless there are strong discount incentives for buying a few units (eg for kids). This Apple has NOT done and never will. They felt they do not need to, arrogance here!.

If you feel that the device is a great fit for your needs and you can live with the limitations, then buy it or else go somewhere else (it tends to offer more for less).

Apple missed an opportunity with the new nano

I think Tim Cook and Apple missed a huge opportunity with the design of the nano and their iPod line. If they were going to go with a widescreen design like that. Why not just reintroduce the iPod mini with that widescreen design and rework the internals of the nano with the new lighting connector faster processor and more colors. That would give apple a more robust iPod line. I think a lot of people are going to miss the old nano and apple is missing a huge opportunity to expand the iPod line.

Gotta add them on your own (they're handled via script, not HTML). $450 extra for non-contract.
So, the iPhone 5 that is the same price as the iPod Touch 5 doesn't exist.

I really wish people would stop comparing the huge price of an iPhone to that of an iPod Touch.

Yeah, design is not good. But it's a small device which means it's very portable... Compare it to Classic ( brick ).

I think users will get used to round icons


Anyone knows the correct date when ipod Touch will be available in the shops ? October 12 - 15 ?

Thumbs down Disappointed & Mad!

Apple has not focused on the fact that this is a device that should be centered around the music factor.

CONS (for me!): Still NO FM Recording and AM tuning (critical for listening to AM broadcasts of games at stadiums!), over priced (considering the prices of some tablets in the market), ugly colors, 'Lightning connector' will NOT allow "me" to sit properly the device on a micro sound system that already had a nice dock for the previous connector type, maximum capacity still too low (I was expecting AT LEAST 80gb w/the size & price of Flash Memory cards these days!!!), ear pods are UGLY, etc.

This is a device clearly targeted at silly teenagers, who as far as I know, don't need a device w/a 5MP camera when their phones can take better pictures! This is not for AUDIO FILES. I will NOT buy. I'm looking into a COWON for my music needs.

Definitely agree, with this.

I've never been an active iPod user, carrying the extra device did not work for me, even before my Mobile was able to play music.
The previous gen Nano finally nailed it for me - I replaced my watch with an iPod, and It's been fabulous. It even got me into podcasts and audiobooks - something the iPhone was never really suited for.

Am disappointed, and can't frankly see the point.
