Many people have speculated that the classic is dead, or on it's way out. Although I can not argue with the decline of it's popularity due mostly to newer iOS device(iPhone/iTouch) but in my opinion not only does the classic still have potential there can be vast improvements herere some improvements which I think could not only keep the classic going but also make it more desirable. -bigger screen: maybe similar to the design of the zune, there is a lot of unused real estate on all the iPod models. You could easily increase the screen size with out bulking up the device -More or less disk space:. More for the people that need it but less to keep cost down for the people who don't. -iOS light:, ability to run some applications like pandora, shazaam etc -wifi/3g:, sure this is not a smart phone, but why not stream media -touch screen+ click wheel: If they can make a touch screen work on a nano they surely can make it work on a 2 inch screen. I like both touch and click wheel. When I am driving I find it easier to navigate on a touch, however it's nice to skip the song with out having to turn on my ipod touch and double tap on the home button to skip to a track -iPod touch icons:eh why not -blue tooth: I doubt we will ever see these changes, I believe that Apple is really trying to push iPhone's more than anything. I really don't want to see the classic go, or even stay stagnant.
