Well obviously it would be expensive now... but not in a few years, even if it is a SSD...

I use my iPhone for most of my music playing now and even the iPad Mini is quickly becoming my main car music player. It's small enough to carry now and with the Bluetooth in my car I don't even have to take the mini out of my backpack. I bought a new nano when they first came out and returned it a few weeks ago. I didn't use it at all.
Maybe you find it fine but there are many of us for whom this does not represent a great solution

e.g. That's great unless you have a big music collection and like listening to mp3 at 320kBps or flac/Apple Lossless. Also if you make and take a lot of calls and use your phone for e-mail and browsing the web the battery isn't up to the combined job of calls + music + other duties.

Would have to be quite a while away to be the price of the classic. It's not just an SSD either, has to be flash memory that will fit in a touch, otherwise you'll just have a classic with an SSD

Love my classic, it currently hold alllll my music and stays connected to the home stereo (basically replaced the CD player). I also take it with me to work from time to time when I get board with the goto power playlist in my phone. If I ever hear confirmed news that they are killing them off I will go and get a second one as a back up, as I think they are the perfect music servers/ storage devices. I've had many external drives (back ups to the back ups) fry and crash on me and in the end through all that my music has always been safe in the classic.

Oh yeah I have an old maxed out 60gig that is permently attached to the car stereo.

Are they (ipod classic as we know it) doomed in time yes.

I love my nano with a watch strap, great for snowboarding
I'd rather use that than risk killing my expensive iPhone
