I'm a big iPod lover. I've owned a 2nd gen nano, a 6th gen classic, then a 5th gen nano, then a 4th gen touch. The touch was stolen, I sold the classic and the 5th gen nano a while ago, and now I have the 2nd gen nano and was on the market for a new nano, but decided eventually to buy a 16GB 5th gen nano again. I love the click wheel. And I think multi-touch should be exclusive to iOS devices. To, me, the 5th gen nano was the last really great iPod (touch aside), that's why I came back to it. The click wheel is what makes the iPod nano and classic likeable, and by that i mean the only people who buy the new nano are probably the ones who can't afford an iPod touch. I don't see any other reason. The classic is off to an everlasting limbo. If and when they kill it off, the click wheel is gone, and so is the iconic, revolutionary iPod UI and shape that redefined the 2000's. I know this probably reads more like a ******, philosophical blog post than an actual thread, but the bottom line is simple, and I'd like to hear your thoughts: What do you think about the extinction of the click wheel? - Is it really a necessary evolutionary step, or does Apple think it's time to move on, focus on iOS and stick on the nano (now a stripped-down touch) as a 'budget' player? - Do you think there will come the time when they can pack a 128GB ssd on the nano, kill off the classic and the nano will have both a 16GB and a 128GB model?
