    Gizmodo is at the live coverage of the keynote where Jobs has just announced the new features of the iPod Touch.

    Except you won't have the Nike+ receiver, and 2.1 is only free if you already have 2.0.

    Man, I'm glad I got my Touch when the dollar was at $2 to the pound - these "updates" are feeble, at best.

    An external volume that you'll hardly ever use (battery drain with a tinny speaker) and something for joggers that most people will never use more than twice (plus you have to pay extra for a receiver to get the thing to work).

    No GPS, no camera, no bluetooth, no case redesign, no memory increase.

    As we've all said before - if you want something better, get an iPhone.

    The receiver is builtin to the new ipod touch models, apple has you covered on that part. I love the price drop, time to get a 32GB model now ^_^

    Pretty dissappointing, they really didn't do much with it aside from the speaker and thinner design. Anyways...when is the ipod touch 2.1 firmware supposed to be released? Is it today or friday with the iphone update.

    I was about to post that as well coming from Apple.com, I can't find them as well. Darn it, I might have to go in store and try out before I buy. Sound quality might be low if its not visible :mad:

    Hmmm well they show that the speaker is down at the bottom where the dock and headphone jack is at. Maybe the sounds will come out from the dock connector? Just weird, why not make it like the iPhone speakers. Oh well, just have to wait and see.

    New iPod Touch Has No GPS, No Mic, No 64GB, No Good Price Drop! It's also official!

    seriously tho... the speaker is good.... but honestly why do we even need a spot in the event if all we get is a new design, a (probably bad) speaker, and stupid Nike+?

    Apple should have waited til January and released more updates for it or released it now and lowered the price by 150-200 instead of 100.

    Very disappointing, but:

    I'll stick with my first gen touch. Might as well just get an iPhone.
