    I think this October Apple might release a new iPod Touch that is also the classic combined
    So it might have the screen of the ipod nano mini sized
    but with the controls of the ipod classic...
    And of course the monstrous storage space
    the advantage is that by now it should be able to store a terabyte of space.
    Like maybe with Siri in it as well so it can use imessage and stuff like that

    But yep it's an awesome idea I Mean think of it this way
    an iPod Touch Classic also acting as a Wireless hard drive connected to the iphone or other devices that CAN be used as a back up source or storing pictures on it as well the advantage of that ipod is the big storage..but yeah
    I hope this is a wonderful idea.....SOMEONE PLEASE STEAL MY IDEA :'(

    Congratulations, you are now an analyst.
    But no, I don't think it's going to happen.

    An absolute nonsense but everyone is entitled to their opinion.

    What the heck are you doing that requires a whole terabyte of disk space? I am very skeptical that you have 1TB of music that you always listen to...

    ITunes Match eliminated the necessity of carrying your entire library with you at all times. Download the music you want to listen to from anywhere. I don't even use half of my 32gb anymore. A TB of space would be useless.

    The earlier you stop resisting and adapt to cloud services, the more prepared you'll be when physical storage eventually becomes an antiquated technology for computer and mobile devices.

    In response to various points:

    Apple specifically points out that iTunes match is not a backup service and you should retain a copy of all your music.

    Physical storage is not going away that fast. Besides if it goes away, here is the data on the cloud kept?

    An iPod Touch would need to be near a WiFi network you could use to download from iTunes Match. This is not always possible.

    Due to data usage limitations that many phone plans in the US has, there will be many people who will restrict music downloads to WiFi only. Again reducing the usefulness of iTunes Match.

    And then there are still some issues with iTunes match discussed elsewhere that make the service not useable for some people.
