    Killing the Touch would be a mistake. Too much potential.

    Get back to original scenario : "The iPhone without the phone".

    - same specs... & much more --> push the enveloppe

    It's unique for those who don't want/need a plan.


    Now, let's have some fun

    iPod Touch --> joins the iPhone family --> smartTouch

    your turn...

    That's not where apple is going. The iphone is what they would rather sell you.

    Kill it and add more storage to the iPod Nano. Keep it and give it more storage, a better DAC, two speaker grills, and still give us the regular home button.

    And move manufacturing to the same place they're doing the Mac Pros.

    That is a flawed idea though. The iPod Touch was not competition to the iPhone as they served different purposes. People are now buying either different brand smart phones, or second hand iPhones instead of iPod Touches - meaning Apple is not making money where it used to. The iPod Touch was great also as a starting point to get into the ecosystem, especially for teenagers.

    Personally I think it will be updated and rebadged the iPad Nano.....

    Nah, they'll still call it iPod Touch.

    And the iPhone is what I'd rather NOT buy. My first one was a IpT3. Then an IpT4. I was content with that, but decided to reward myself due to a life milestone with the IpT5 (glad I did :cool:... the extra pluses were put to good use).

    If it's going to be the end of the line for the IpT, then I'll consider buying another IpT5, or just stick with my Ipad Air 1 for games, and end up playing much less games since I won't be able to carry that around as much as I do with my IpT5.

    I don't care what they call it. For me, my next one, I want something with a 4.7" or 5.5" screen, and enough processor and system memory resources to last a "decent" amount of time that can run newer versions of iOS and games. If I want to listen to music, I still have my 80GB Ipod Classic.

    Again, this may not happen, but it'd be time to get off the handheld Apple device train then.
