    Will it be the way it is currently? I'm personally hoping for a matte finish similar to the current Nano, for the 3rd gen touch.

    Thoughts?

    Is it me or...

    Does it seem Apple wants to streamline things?

    I can DEFINITELY see the entire backing of the iPod touch being anodized aluminum just like the nano and the front-face of the classic.

    It's a possibility... However, IF it were to happen, I doubt the colors would be black and white. Maybe the black and silver of the iPod Classic... colors? Not till later if it happens.

    It's funny how in the iPhone forum we all want them to go back to the aluminum back and here you guys want the polycarbonate backs.

    The rumors say that the back will be changed to match the one from the iPhone in black or white.

    Just rumors. So, satisfaction is not guaranteed and no money back. ;)

    I fail to see how polycarbonate:

    Is the same stuff as anodized aluminum:

    I don't think the poster sees them as the same thing. He/She is only mentioning that it seems that each forum seems to want the opposite of what they currently have (iPhone users wanting a back of aluminum while Touch users mention wanting a black/white back.) BTW, Polycarbonate is much more than drink bottles.

    I disagree. Most iPod touch users don't seem to want a plastic back but an anodized aluminum that won't scratch as easily...

    And I understand that Polycarbonate is more than water bottles. I used the watter bottle, however, as an exaggeration. Compress/ do whatever you want with it, it will never be aluminum.

    True. I'm completely happy with the aluminum back on mine. I'm more interested in what's inside the new model. :)
