    This has probably been asked lots before but I am new here. Any word/rumors on when an iPod Touch with a greater capacity than 16GB might be available? I have held out on buying one for probably as long as I can now and I think that the hard drive on my old 40GB iPod Photo is about to crash (lots of clicking noises and trouble syncing).

    Should I go ahead and get the 16GB or is there any chance of something larger coming out in the next six months????

    There's a good chance that 32GB will come within 6 months in my opinion, but thats a long time, and there's always something new around the corner...

    Yes, there's a chance, as always. It's inevitable that there will be a 32GB version, but we don't know when it'll be out. Probably before Xmas. Maybe before fall. Possibly in a few weeks.

    But probably not until summer or later.

    Exactly! If I got one today, they would announce the new one tomorrow. That is the joy of technology!

    I disagree with the others here. I think that we will see a 32GB iPod touch before summer, perhaps April some time.

    Come on man, you think Apple would sleep that long while creative rolls out their 32Gb?

    Yeah, so iPT is Multi-Touch and all that, but Creative's selling their crappy player for 329$, thats almost as much as the 8 Gb iPT. I am expecting Apple to discontinue iPT 8 Gb, set iPT 16 Gb price to 300$, introduce the iPT 32 Gb for 400$ which i believe is a good deal, in the next 2-3 months.

    Of course the rest of the line might see some storage updates.

    Don't you think that if apple discontinues the 8GB iPod Touch and comes out with a 32GB iPT this soon there will be a lot of angry people like it happened with the iPhone when they lowered the price?

    Like they did when i bought my Macbook Pro? I bought the 1.83 Ghz, week later pop goes the 2.0 Ghz (and a better HDD or superdrive (dun remember)) for a tad bit less then what i gave for mine. That was simply great. And i've been checking the MRBG i've noticed that it has happened before, iPod revs in September and in February of the year after.

    And note that i have not said they will do that this month, it could well be around the release of the SDK. Or are you expecting Apple to stay with ( Gb and 16 Gb eternally just so everyone is happy that their product is still being sold by Apple.

    Apple normally introduces improved or new lines of iPod's in September so I don't expect to see any new ones till then.

    I'm not saying that Apple should stay with 8GB and 16GB forever but I would be mad if they released the 32GB this soon and the price was what I payed for my 16GB. Just like what happened with the iPhone price drop.

    Seconded.
    Yup. Apple has never once been concerned about keeping up with other companies specs. Other companies are concerned about keeping up with Apple. Creative has to offer more capacity to give them any sort of competitive advantage over Apple. Apple can rely on the quality of their device and services to bring in a higher margin.

    Exactly. It'll be about a week after the back to school rebates end, just like every other iPod update.

    I'm happy with my 8 gig iPod Touch. If they release a 32 gig version and drop the 16 gig to 300$ in couple months I won't be mad. Happens every time you buy something, a new and bigger version always comes out a few months later.

    I would at least wait until MWSF, its only 9 days away. As the other posters have said, they typically roll out new updates in Sept., but it can't hurt waiting only a little over a week to see what Apple has up their sleeve. Then at least you'll know you didn't buy a touch to find out a week later they double the size or something.

    I'd wait for Mac Expo in 9 days. I want a new desktop. Nine days won't kill me, even if I was desperate for a new computer.
