Would It Be Redundant To Buy The iPod Touch 4?

Hello everybody!
I'm looking to purchase a new iPod. I've used an iPod Nano Second Generation since I got it in 2006-2007 sometime. I love that little iPod, and never had an issue with it - but unfortunately it was stolen along with my bag a month ago

I'm not super duper heavy into having the latest technology. Heck, I only realized that I needed to upgrade software when trying to download iTunes 11 last week (unfortunately I need to go from Leopard - Mountain Lion so I just sent away for Snow Leopard a few days ago, d'oh!) however I do enjoy having cool features to play with.

I'm not a fan of the new generation of iPod nano's in the least, and it would be an absolute waste for me to go with an iPod classic, because I'd never fill it, so I thought I'd give the iPod Touch a go. I've always wanted an iPhone so it would kinda fill two "wants" in my life.

My only issue is that $299 price tag. In addition, I would need to purchase an adapter for that new Lighting connector, case for the iPod, and another $20 to upgrade to Mountain Lion. So quite a few expenses.

I was considering going with the 16GB 4th Generation. The $100 difference would really be a nice bonus, and the 30 pin connector would fit my current docking station perfectly. My only concern would be purchasing something which is going to become obsolete too quickly. Because the 5G has so many additional features such as the extra inch of screen space and the new lighting adapter, is Apple going to be gearing all their new apps and equipment to fit these specifications and leave the 4G completely out of the loop?

What are everybody's thoughts?
