    Well, no camera on the touch.

    Only on the Nanos. Obviously an attempt to keep the original nano/mini line alive...

    Personally i'm glad I didn't sell my 16GB 2nd Gen Touch last week to buy the new one...

    What about you?

    Your thoughts on the new Touch?

    :cool:

    Probably didn't want to add too much iphone functionality to the ipod touch. I'm happy with it! i'll be buying as soon as I have 300 extra dollars.

    So is there a new iPod Touch or not? I'm confused. So now I can maybe get the iPod Touch at a cheaper price? Doesn't sound like anything new on the Touch?

    How many times has it been said that Apple probably won't cannibalize their line by making the only difference between a touch and a phone ... well a phone? It sucks many sold their Touches and probably took a nice loss.

    I have to admit, I wasnt looking forward to this because i already have an iphone, but even I am dissapointed. No camera for the Itouch? im sure there are a lot of dissapointed people lol. Do people even still buy nanos? (Sarcasm)-for those less intelligent.

    Should not have sold my 8GB :(. Think I will just find a 16GB on Ebay. 32GB is a bit too big for me. Don't have that much music and don't use it for movies.

    It's a YES for me. I never gave a crap's arss about this cam gimmick anyway. I hardly use my cellphone cam as it is (5megapixel with Xenon).It's all about faster engines for me :D. I'm happy to hear it has the ver 2.0 OpenGL which means graphics and games would be kickass. Now I just want confirmation that this has the ARM Cortex A8 600 MHz processor as well as the 256 MB RAM. Then it's a go. Otherwise, if the processor or RAM is the same, the 3GS would be a better device for gaming.

    As for those itching for a cam, wait a bit for more news. It's not totally confirmed yet due to that "production problem" rumor. :)

    I don't think I would have raised an eyebrow if neither the touch or nano had been upgraded with a camera, but putting one in the nano without the touch doesn't make sense. There are more than a few apps that take advantage of the iPhone's camera, and those apps still are limited in market size.

    Yes, there may have been some cannibalization, but I don't think the only difference between the phone and iPod are the phone and camera. Are they?

    No camera, no new Touch for me. Pretty simple. This was a mistake on their part.

    you guys are acting as if the camera is even that good. It's definitely not a replacement for a real camera, it's VGA cellphone quality. Definitely doesn't stop me from buying a new iPod, mainly because I need to anyways, the price drop is welcome, 300 dollars for 32 GB makes me happy enough.

    That's a dealbreaker, ladies!
    All I wanted was a built-in mic for Skype. No way I'm buying a Touch now.

    I don't have one yet but I have been wanting to get one. I waited to see what was going to happen with the key note. the camera thing really was not a deal breaker for me. the price cut is nice I'll probably get the 32 gig one.

    for me its not 2 much about the camera, but the fact that i would have to downgrade from 16 gb to 8 and pay for a touch thats slower that the others for 199. i payed for my first gen itouch for 400, 1 month or so before 2cd gen was release. have really regreted paying so much 2 apple and will be wary of them in the future.

    also if i'm correct, the speed increase is just a gimmic to drive sales to 32 and 64, and make money off 8 gigs

    So nothing changed in the 8gb model at all? And the 32/64gb ones got the faster processor. Why did they get rid of the 16gb?

    Apple really dropped the ball here, and I mean like SONY levels of **** up.

    The 8GB touch is really a joke with year old hardware at that price tag, $199 would be compelling at 16GB and up to date hardware.

    The lack of a camera is a real bitch, especially since the nano got one.

    I really need a new Touch since I still have a 1st gen, but what Apple released is really sub-par.

    Well, at this point I'm not really sure. I was hoping that there would be a 16GB at around $250 to go with but that isn't the case. It just feels like an underwhelming update with the exception of the speed bump . I'll wait to see the concrete specs of the device before making a decision but right now I'm not sure.
