    The title of the January 27th Media Event by Apple is "Come see our latest creation"

    Is it possible that Apple may have created a NEW ipod touch with camera?
    Is it possible that Apple may add multi-color ipod touches in several colors?
    Is it possible that Apple may not even show none of this? and the whole show is for the main introduction of the rumored "apple tablet"?:confused:

    For sure Apple is going to introduce something "new" but the question is what? :p

    Will the ipod touch see any changes for the media event? (i.e color, camera, memory, RAM, performance, new apps)

    Personally i really think the camera idea is very doubtful.

    Colors may be likely, still very unlikely. (I got this idea from the paint and the apple sign that apple created in their invitations. last time i saw paint in an apple ad, was the ipod nano's being introduced in MANY COLORS!)

    I have created a POLL too....so vote!!!!! i wanna see statistics. :)

    How about updates to software? but not hardware.

    I do not think there will be anything new for the Touch due to sales still doing well. I think we aren't getting the iPod Touch with camera till next September. Another side of me, is thinking we may never get a camera now. If Apple & Verizon spit out an iPhone in June - there is an even lesser chance of Apple putting in a camera. It is all about sales for them.

    I can explain more if anyone doesn't get my gist.

    By Apple referring to their new 'creation', I'm guessing it's the Mac Tablet that has been rumoured for a while. It's probably going to be pretty revolutionary from the sounds of it.

    Though I initially believed that the camera-equipped touch would be introduced at this event, I'm having doubts now that we've seen the invitation. If there is a new touch, it will be released silently.

    Both the touch and the iphone design are getting dated. I expect a fresh case (body) design for both, with perhaps an OLED screen. For those who don't think they are bright enough outside, don't be surprised if LG showed Apple how to put a membrane backlight behind for when it's needed. The iLet will lead the way with a similar body.

    As for the colorful invite, it makes me think there will be a great painter's app on board and the touchscreen will be pressure sensitive.

    I count eight colors in the invitation, all of which pertain to existing iPod Nano colors. The border of the invitation is shaped lie a tablet. Latest creation? They aren't creating anything by adding a camera to a Touch, they aren't creating anything by painting existing hardware.

    An iPod touch is not their latest creation.

    I find this to be highly unlikely.

    no one cares about colors for ipod touches. most people would buy a new ipod touch with a camera though, regardless of whether they already have one or not. at least that's what i've been holding off for.

    Me too. Imagining the future is fun though. Much of what we know as true today was first imagined by science fiction writers.

    iPod Touch in 8 or more colors is the logical next step. The Zune HD comes in a variety of colors. Apple has already learned they can expand the market for a Shuffle or Nano by simply making it available in fashionable colors.

    Don't get your hopes up. The traditional product cycle for iPod hardware updates is September. And I haven't seen any news or rumors to suggest this year will be any different. The most you can hope for would be a capacity bump on the high end for the touch, but even that's fairly unlikely.

    And four months is way too soon to be updating the hardware on the iPod line.

    Could you please post some evidence supporting this statement or edit your post to start with "In my opinion".

    I am his evidence. There are plenty of others like me who put off updating their 2G Touch when the 3G came out without a camera and would pick one up in a flash if a camera was added.

    @Plutonius: does it really make a difference if he starts with "In my opinion"? This thread is about speculation, after all. Most everyone speaks that way, and I can't fathom why could that get you worked up. In my opinion, don't worry too much about it ;)

    @tadad1: you are most people? :eek: Time to go see a shrink for some serious multiple personality disorder treatment

    My guess is the most we will see is a software update.

    iPods are traditionally updated for the fall. I don't see that changing.
