    Have there been any rumors about updates to the iPod Touch line at MWSF?

    If they update the iPhone they will update the iPod Touch.

    will there be any hardware changes? Very unlikely
    software changes? Most likely.
    To support SDK, the iPod along with iPhone will need to be able to deal with the new apps meaning an upgrade would do that. Any major upgrade for iPhone follows up with an upgrade to iPod touch.

    Software updates, yes. Hardware updates, I think not.

    The only hardware updates would be a bigger hard drive, everything else would be a software update. 1.1.3 is rumored for the iPhone and I would expect it for touch as well.

    If not at MWSF then . . .

    If the IPT is not updated at MWSF then when are the next dates of usual new/updated product releases (i.e. WWDC 2008?, etc.). If the IPT is not updated this month, then I may go ahead and bite the bullet and make my purchase, but if an update is expected before July then I can wait. I really don't need one (going to use as a PDA-like device for medical rotations) until I begin rotations in July.

    Apple tends to update their iPod lines in the September/October timeframe.

    yes, a hard drive would certainly make it bigger ;)

    Since the IPT is more like an iphone than the typical ipod wouldn't one think that upgrades to IPT would coincide with iphone updates, which was first announced in the spring and then available in June? Is there a apple event (with usual product announcements) between January and August/September?

    WWDC is in June, but I wouldn't expect updates then. You'll see iPod (all lines, doesn't matter how similar it is to the iPhone) hardware updates around September.

    I think that the iPhone might get 3G at macworld, but how would an update to the iPod touch coincide with that ? It wouldn't. If the iPhone sees a memory upgrade, then I say there's still a low chance of getting one for the iPod touch. Because they'll want new, fresh products for the holidays and it won't be possible by September to get it up to 64GB.

    I'm assuming you mean actual hardware, not firmware updates. It is true that the iPod touch is like an iPhone, but they were released at different times.
