touchscreen and clickwheel ? i dont think so. one or another. if have touchscreen why clickwheel ? you steel need to look to it to do anything.I don't think I'll be getting the next iPod, I think that I can live with my iPhone alone. But both the click wheel and the touch screen have their pros and cons. A touch screen iPod would be cool, but then like the iPhone you have to look at it to operate it. You loose the ability to use it in your pocket. I think that a combination of the click wheel and the touch screen would be cool if Apple could pull it off.
its been confirmed that video is for the NANO, so hopefuly we see a touchscreen ipodi think the videos confirmed it'll be clickwheel...whether a touchscreen clickwheel which was patented ages ago is another question
I only want an iPod if it's video - that's my main attraction, for commuting + flights. If Apple falls down in that department, I might even (shudder!) consider a PSP. Paying $599 for an iPhone, unlocking it less the phone capacity, and still only having 8GB of memory is not what I want.
Brainstorm: couldn't they just put the click-wheel on the back? If everybody's so big on "it's tactile, you do it by touch," wouldn't it then be irrelevant if it's on the front or the back? Recess it a little so you don't bump it.
yes! or even giving the corners a desirable function to play, FF, RW or w/e you need to dohaving a click wheel and a touch screen is redundant. You can do what the other dude said or have simple touch actions that can be placed anywhere on the screen that would execute a function.... ex. one tap of the screen = skip to the next track
