    No I doubt there will be sorry. Apple is dropping the iPod line and will replace it with cheaper, prepaid iPhones.

    /sarcasm (I hope)

    It's against forum rules to correct people on minor spelling/grammar mistakes.

    I think the 5G will be the last iteration before they kill it for a cheaper iPhone.

    I believe we'll see a 5th gen iPod touch. It will be interesting to see the changes between the 4th and 5th gens.

    We sure haven't heard much about it. The last rumor that I saw was that it might have 3G capabilities, but I've seen nothing at all about the cameras or anything else. A less expensive iPhone or something similar as a replacement sounds like a real possibility.

    The introduction of a slightly larger device might be an intelligent move...

    I keep hearing these options what apple will do

    1. release the 5th gen ipod touch
    2. replace ipod touch with cheaper iphone for 5th gen

    I hope that we get 5th gen ipod touch. But if it doesn't and we get option 2.

    I hope that the cheaper iphone has the battery as good as the ipod touch which last a few days without recharging. I heard that the Iphones nowadays don't last long the battery like 1 day or less.

    For me battery life is important, I don't like constantly recharging.

    Also we don't know how much a cheaper iphone will cost.

    With only a few weeks to September and no official word on release of ipod5g can we assume its probably not going to happen?

    there would not be official word before its release, so that is irrelevant. there is a huge market for the ipod, particularly among those of us who loathe data plans. that would include kids, by the way, who would be more likely to receive an ipod than a cheap iphone (i doubt such a product will appear). although demand for the ipod touch is not what it used to be (for various reasons), i think apple will continue releasing new models.

    i think the more important question to ask is whether there is anyone out there who is pushing them to release a new one. without any competitors, they could easily go another year and still dominate the mp3 market. i wouldn't hold your breath.

    That's why an announcement of one this year is questionable in my opinion.

    I'm tending lately to think that it is more likely than not that there will be another version of the Touch but I can't see it being so for next year. I'm willing to buy a 32Gig model and have listed elsewhere what I think it will have. When the low cost world (China) version of the iPhone comes out the Touch will loose a lot of market share and get discontinued..
    But don't worry be happy this year!

    Nope they're renaming it the iPad Nano, then the ipod nano will be called the ipad nano nano.

    That, I think, would be awesome and funny at the same time.

    So what are you.. 12? They are "cheep" because a new model is around the corner. Any true Fanboy will get the latest model as soon as released. Here's a deal I have a 1st Gen in great shape. I only listened to classical music on it. I am willing to sell it cheep. :rolleyes:
