    Why would they? What would be the purpose? Apple wants control, and they aren't going to do it.

    I really hope they do. It would be totally awesome. It would be like adding extra memory to the iPod.

    I really don't think they are going to add any new HARDWARE because they are trying to get the iPods and iPhones thinner. They might add it to the iPhone. But not the iPod.

    99.9% notta chance.

    Why? You just transfer in and out from a computer. No need for a card. The iPT is the lowest-end Apple mobile iOS device: they won't add anything that will put it in front of any other iOS device.

    They wouldn't but it in front of any other iDevice but it would not be I front of the other iDevice if they added it to the iPhone and iPad.

    SD card? I think it's impossible and I don't like it also.

    SD Card? Did you even see how slim iPod touch is? It's going to get even slimmer every two years or three years.

    64GB is not enough storage? Good lord...

    If they ever put a card slot, it would be for Micro SD card slot and it won't be SD card slot.

    :)confused: This is the third time I'm typing this, don't know why it got rejected 2x, sorry if ends up with 3 similar posts)

    First, What you (Grant1210) plan to use a SD card reader for?

    I think it's unlikely.

    • Physically: No room; or at least the space inside the slim iPod touch can be better used to continue to improve battery, camera, screen, or possibly 3Gdata/GPS/antennae (rumored today). Adding a reader isn't just the size of a card, it's all the frames and electronics needed to make it work. I'd hope they improve the 0.7 MP camera rather than put in a SD reader. :D

    • Strategically: Apple has good deals with Flash RAM manufacturers; I dont see Apple relinquish that advantage and go to SD cards. Also, allowing music/movies/books/apps to be transferred via SD card would open up a can of worms in terms of copyright issues. And Apple's media partners would not like that at all.

    • Functionally: Apple's a minimalist, less is more. I don't see how carrying extra SD cards around fits in that. In terms of media transfer, you can already transfer all you media amongst your computer/iPhone/iPod/iPad via iTunes. And with iOS5/iCloud coming soon, you'll have all your media accessible from all your devices. I think Apple would like you to use the wireless iCloud over an SD card.
    Most people would use an SD card with a camera. Apple sells a reader for the current iPad. I could see them putting in a reader for a high end iPad HD (rumored). I doubt they'd put one into the iPod touch.

    Cheers! (hope this goes thru this time. if not, I give up. :p)
    (Oh and I don't know any more than everyone else here who reads rumors. :D)

    In a short answer, No. Apple makes a majority of their profit from flash memory in their mobile devices, so when someone purchases a 32GB over an 8GB touch - that's a $70 difference with 16GB of memory which is about $25-35 for an SD Card - they will never support SD media on their portable devices in my opinion.

    The mechanisms needed for sd slots would take up space designed for battery and whatnot. I prefer longer lasting battery vs. more memory. Nand memory will get cheaper every year so I'm sure Apple will up the space.

    As I suggested a few weeks ago, why not choose one thread as the thread to discuss the 5G iPod Touch and attach a sticky to it?

    There are various point of views to discuss iPod Touch 5g.
    One thread is not sufficient to contain all discussions, therefore multiple threads are needed.

    However this thread is very similar to previous threads and does not provide new viewpoints on iPod Touch 5g so this thread should not have been made.

    Seriously, use the other two iPod touch 5 threads that already have pages of posts on them and stop spamming this forum with redundant threads.

    --

    Besides, get an app like TuneIn Radio and you can listen to any station you want when you have WiFi.
