    And kudos to the rumor mill for being spot on this year. This Touch is a dream come true!

    You have to admit that it was pretty predictable. They didn't introduce anything groundbreaking.
  3. macrumors member

    Grand slam would have included 3G.

    no, but kudos to apple for including all of the features a majority of us wanted.

    Nothing so great to make me replace my 64GB Touch. When it breaks, if they haven't released the iPhone 4 for T-Mobile, sure.

    What else could they have done? You want it to turn into a jet pack and fly you to the moon or something?
  8. macrumors 6502a

    GPS would of been nice, i'll still have to jailbreak it and use a bluetooth GPS.

    have to agree. Tempted to ditch my iphone 3gs for this baby. The thinness, speed, retina display, front camera and flat back.
  10. macrumors 6502

    it's 99% of what the iphone 4 has minus the phone
  11. macrumors 6502a


    It has the same speed, display, and front camera. That isn't 99%.
  12. macrumors 65816


    The camera is of a lower quality than the one in the iPhone 4.

    It's good but predictable. They could have made something magical and backed off. they hit it up to the fence but it should have gone over.

    I would have loved 3G, the same camera, and the same design as iPhone 4, but I still bought a 32GB model.
  15. macrumors 6502

    ^ yes this.
    even a lower quality then the origional iphone or even 4 year old basic phones they give out free...smh

    From all the speculation, this is as about as good as we could have expected for the 4G iPod Touch. I am satisfied with the new features and am looking forward to purchasing my iPod Touch, very soon.

    There is no way Apple is going to put 3G into the iPod Touch. There would be little difference between it and the iPhone.
  18. macrumors 6502

    If they had taken the phone part out of the IP4 and released it as the new 4G Ipod touch, now THAT would have been a grand slam. I grade this as a triple, MAYBE a one run home run.
  19. macrumors 65816


    A recent study released showed that the owners of smart phones used them a lot for data and not so much for making calls.
  20. macrumors 68020

    I'm impressed for the most part, but believe there is still plenty of room for improvement. Mainly that iOS could use a rethink. Still having to leave an app to go into Settings for related options is archaic.
  21. macrumors 65816


    Wow. If the aliens land tomorrow and read this thread, their conclusion will be that, except for one guy, everyone hates the abomination that is the iPod Touch. Wait - make it two guys. I think it's a grand slam, too.
  22. macrumors member

    Your fanboy status is noted.
  23. macrumors 68020

    I couldn't agree more. Still waiting for jailbreak just to get SBSettings. (and Bluetooth tethering)
  24. macrumors 65816


    I'm really impressed with the iPod touch, a huge improvement, but I wonder why they didn't put GPS.
  25. macrumors 6502

    GPS minus 3G is of limited use at best. You'd have to buy one of the offline mapping/direction packages to make use of it when you'd really need it.
