I love the iPod touch, but if its not mentioned at all during the Oct 16th event I'm afraid they will just keep the current out for awhile then quietly kill it off like the iPod classic.
when you consider they have a 5.5 iPhone, 7.9 iPad mini and a watch out or coming soon, i think they would rather just kill off iPod touch so it doesn't cannibalize those other products. there is already reports the iPad mini isn't selling as well as they hoped, so coming out with a larger iPod touch sure won't help that.
personally, i've used an iPod touch for the last 3 years, but i was planning to finally upgrade to something much larger. so in my case a new iPod touch that is still the same size wouldn't appeal to me
I don't have a smartphone. Don't need one. Don't want one. I travel a lot, and hate being locked into expensive long term contracts. I refuse to spend $100 plus a month to the telecoms for limited data. I've been making & receiving calls on my iPod touch & iPad mini for over 4 yrs now. Works great.
Anyway...I really don't think Apple will let the iPod touch die. Oct 16th should be interesting.
what is your preferred app on the the iPod touch to make & receive calls?
Apple would like you to buy an iphone 6 or 6s in order to use iOS, i hope to be wrong but i don't think new ipod touch it's comming on 16th.
I used to use yahoo messenger until they got rid of their VoIP feature. I now use google voice & google hangouts. Works great. If I miss a call, it goes to voicemail and google even transcribes what the caller said in an email. I use it for texting as well. But I also use iMessage for that. FaceTime & Skype every now and then. I have some other apps like txt now that I use less and less. But I do try to keep current with new VoIP apps out there. What do you use?
