    So recently, I bought a 2g for my Brother, and now I'm anticipating my own touch. Should I just get one now or wait till september? I don't really know if I want to wait with nothing all summer break lol. All I have is a broken nano....

    16gb Touch, or wait for the new one?

    I would wait for the new one. That's what I'm doing, although I have a 1G to hold me off until then.

    Hold off, you'll probably be able to get a 64GB for the current price of the 32GB if Apple holds to their usual pattern.

    It's so tempting to just go buy one and start using it... MUST RESTRAIN! The wait will be worth it, but the wait is killing me...

    If you don't have a monthly income, I would wait. Well, I can't say that. I just got an 8g 2g on sunday and I don't have monthly income. But time september comes, I'll probably get the new if there is. Because I'll be working by July.

    But in all, you should wait.

    yeh I'm with everyone else I have a 1g and I am tempted to upgrade especially with the new 3.0 as it doesn't add much more to the 1g so was thinking 2g purchase but then it's like well 3 months time there will be a new touch so I am going to just sit back and relax with my 1g till a 3rd gen is released I thinks and even then I may wait longer to see if the wonderful dev team can jailbreak it.

    I think they will take like half a year to jailbreak it.. considering how long they took for 2g.. Anyway, I'm not gonna jailbreak anymore. I regretted jbking my ipod touch which I suspected, is responsible for it's lagginess as well as random shut downs and lack of responsiveness..

    Tricky. I've been waiting for months anyway, and can't wait til Sept - a whole summer with no music player. Will be going for a 32gb. They will have a fairly high eBay resale value anyway in Sept still, so estimating that the cost of ownership for next 3 months likely to be around £70.

    There is a new iTouch coming? So it would not be good to spend $399 for a 32GB now? What is due in September?

    Lol, No. Unless you have vast amounts of money to buy stuff with.

    Though, Like I said in an earlier post, I bought an 8gb 2g to hold me off until september. I'll be buying 3rd gen in september though. And with the way apple prices things after something comes out, who knows, a 64gb could be the price of the 32gb or cheaper.

    The thing is, I don't have an Mp3 player at the moment. I'm also going on a few trips over this summer... AGH I can't decide!

    Apple's pattern is something like this for most iPods.

    iPod Touch 2nd Generation
    $259 for 8GB
    $329 for 16GB
    $429 for 32GB

    iPod Touch 3rd Generation
    $259 for 16GB
    $329 for 32GB
    $429 for 64GB

    This is the same for the iPhone 3G S

    iPhone 3Gs was just announced, and that will be 16/32 gigs. iPod touch has always had double the gigs of the iPhone, so it's expected that this year's touch will be 32/64 gigs.

    Well, those people were idiots. 32GB chips didn't exist back then, so it was impossible.

    Now it isn't impossible in the slightest.

    Exactly. The iPhone has one memory slot, the iPod touch has two. So based on a 32GB iPhone, then a 64GB touch is highly likely.

    I really think Apple is ready to kill the classic as soon as the get enough storage on the touch and I think 64GB might be the point where they say goodbye to the classic.

    Plus they want to make sure they stay two-three steps ahead of the Zune HD.

    Samsung and Archos have all announced new devices this week to rival the iPod Touch. Many other manufacturers are trying to chase the same market with very similar products - some of which are quite a bit cheaper than the equivalent iPod Touch.

    So it's quite possible Apple will use the next refresh to update the storage capacity, perhaps add one or two new features and then bundle the Touch with OS 3.0.

    I would not be at all surprised to see a 64GB version. In fact they might be talking about even greater storage capacity if they are trying to phase out the iPod Classic.
