I'm confused. Why didn't the Touch get a camera? I mean the Nano update is pretty slick but why would the Touch be left out?

Yeah i agree, with 20 million touches sold world wide, only topped by the 30 million iPhones you think they would of give one of there top 3 products a major upgrade to really stay ahead of the competition. No Oled screen either =[.

Yawn.

I'm happy that the Classic still lives and at higher capacity, though. And that the touch didn't get a camera - what a yucky idea that was.

It's down to a Zune HD or iPod Nano now for me. I can't justify the price of that iPod touch for so little added.

The app store is nice, but I don't need another gaming device.

Skype on "new" iPod Touches

So, the "new" 32G and 64G iPod Touches feature "Earphones with Remote and Mic".

Could that mean the high end touches could run the Skype app???

Glad I returned my 16GB Nano not one month ago. I would imagine folks who purchased last gen Nanos' over the last few weeks would feel a little 'hard done by'.

Wow. I guess I would much rather have a 32GB nano than a video camera...

Looks like I'm $400 richer for a while. Next update when I can get GPS and 64GB, and the Touch didn't cross the bar. Figure I'll buy in again next year when either the iPhone grows, or the Touch adds GPS.

No, we don't. I don't carry a phone around with me. I have a cell phone that often gets lost for a couple weeks before I find it again.

Yup. My brother runs skype on his 2Gen Touch with a microphone/speaker unit.

Current (now known as last gen) Touches run Skype.

nano = nice update!

classic = yippee, it lives on! Of course they had a 160gb version two years ago, so nothing new here...

touch = meh. At least it is higher capacity and faster. Cool if you are a gamer. I think no camera (yet) because they don't want to cannibalize iphone sales.

shuffle = gosh I hate that thing. Put the controls back on the unit please! I don't care how many crappy third party headphones with controls come out for it.

itunes = more bloat to make it even slower! Can we please get a de-featured no store, music only itunes lite please?

Am I the only one who still loves a Classic?

Love em, love em, love em. I have a Classic for "normal" use, a 1G nano for the gym and a 3G iPhone for ... a phone. I'm thrilled with that lineup.

I like Apple.

ps: I won't be buying anything introduced today. No need.

I think that the iPod Touch was definitely due a camera. They must have withdrawn it at the last moment. Its makes no sense otherwise.

Apple blew it

This is a HUGE disappointment for us ipod touch 2G users. How lame is it to offer video camera and built-in mic for the nano, and nothing for the touch. The storage upgrades (to 64GB) are practically worthless -- who is going to shell out the dough just for memory increase, especially if you aren't even able to shoot video (a reason extra storage might even be useful).

Oh, but we get a firmware upgrade --- BFD.

Seriously, ipod touch users are getting the shaft yet again (a microphone should have been built into the first one to begin with, and there isn't even voice command support if you plug a mic in).

The "no camera/mic" news is a complete deal-breaker on this one, and very aggravating to boot.

Truly lame Apple.

Wow Apple, really? I was stoked for the camera. And then the NANO gets a camera and the touch doesnt. Come on.
Now im just waiting for the 2G vs 3G speed test to see if I should get a refurb

Im really disappointed to see the nano gets an FM Tunner, a Pedometer and a Videocamera with mic, and the Touch gets nothing but an unsurprising capacity bump, Im still buying an iTouch, but the FM Tunner and camara would made this a truly significant upgrade... Im looking to replace my 2 years old cybershot and my recently dead 5Gen iPod and a single devide for both would been awesome....
