I have decided against an iPhone, as it would add too much money to our already $150/month family cell phone plan for an iPhone 3G. Instead, I would like to buy an iPod Touch. However, there have been no recent price drops, and Apple tends to release new iPods after the student promotion is finished. I would like an iPod for a 6 week trip to Japan over the summer, since my old iPod is quickly dying. Should I wait, or should I pray to the Apple gods that my old iPod lives for another little while?
