    It only makes sense... the reason the iPhone wasn't available in 32GB capacity was because one of the spots the iPod uses for storage was occupied by the phone radio and now there is a 32GB iPhone...

    I'm also thinking the 8GB iPod may go away and you'll get the 16GB for $200, 32GB for $300 and the 64GB for $400 (but that may not happen until next year).

    What do you guys think?

    Seeing as we have absolutely no idea and cannot know,

    Yes, that makes sense, since 32GB chips exist.

    64 GB for iPT in september is a safe assumption. But a simple memory increase will be a very lame update. You`d probably see the addition of a camera and gps in the Touch along with the new 600Mhz proc and 256 MB RAM. And may be a mic too for voip calls:eek:. But it`d be really hard to put all these in the touch without compromising on its size.

    The only way a 64 GB iPod Touch ISN'T coming is if they decide to stop making them or they call them something else.

    Yes, it IS coming, though possibly not in September and possibly not the same exact name/product. Jeeze...

    48 isn't possible, but 1TB is; let's see...

    64, 128, 256, 512, 1024...

    1TB iPod touch in 2013.

    you cant see my point? I mean people were adamant the 2nd gen would be 64gb look what happend there ;) so I still stand by saying no1 can say there will be a 64gb iPod Touch unless apple officially say so ;)

    Haha, of course I see your point.

    The OP was asking for opinions; by this reasoning we should get onto every poster who doesn't use the phrase "I think.." before their statements. I always infer these statements are what people "think" or "believe" given the nature of this site. :)

    So OP, I BELIEVE we'll see a 64GB iPod Touch. But, keep in mind that because Apple hasn't officially said ANYTHING, we cannot assume they will make any new product of any type ever again... ;)

    You are correct - we cannot say with certainty.

    However, 32 GB chips are common now and apple has begun using them in the iphone. The touch uses two of them. So...

    Makes sense knowing 32GB nand chips are now being used.

    Yes any comments about 64-GB iPT should be preferaced with the statement that it's technically feasible to offer a 64-GB model but we really don't know.

    I expect a camera to be added and the same video features offered as in the iPhone.

    It'll be faster hardware to match the iPhone. They may add some tweaks here and there but I doubt it'll change much because with the iPhone and iPod Touch combo they get maximum economy of scale from using the same parts.

    Camer and mic make sense, but GPS?

    Lost in the wilderness, trying to find your way home, but you have WiFi?

    Also, you can use google maps to find your location down to a block or two, so what's the point?

    On board maps. Like the TomTom coming for the iphone. Forget wifi or data dependency...

    One can dream cant he. BTW why would wifi be required for GPS to work? Atleast not if you have maps saved in your iPod. Not many people would use GPS but still it`ll be a welcome addition if they do it. Apple might shy away from it though, in order to cut costs and keep the ipod as thin as possible.

    i highly doubt the iPod touch will have a camera. In one way or another, that would have to hurt iPhone sales

    OK? It may hurt iPhone sales, but Apple still gets their money.

    How would that be? No one is buying an iPhone only for its camera. It's an added extra that people like to have, but not a necessity, and surely not the reason people buy an iPhone. The quality of the camera in the iphone is not in the same league as the typical P&S camera.

    I think that a 64GB iPod Touch with a camera is certainly a strong possibility. Although not probable, I'd like to see the new iPod Touch with 3G access. This would create a new profit center for Apple and/or any phone company that hosts the service. You could charge $15-$20 a month for the service, and coupled with Apple's browsing capabilities, would be a windfall for new iPod sales. And no, it would not cut into iPhone sales. It is a phone after all, and the primary reason people buy the iPhone. The iPod is just that, an iPod, and does not have the hardware to be anything else.
