    Will my white 64GB iPod Touch become obsolete if a new model's announced today? :(

    Um... no... it will still work just fine. It's okay if you don't own the very latest of everything.

    But Gen 3 are moving closer to obsolescence by not being upgradable to iOS6

    So is Siri an iOS 6 feature across everything that can install it or is 5g Touch / iPhone 4s/5 only?

    Yes. Everyone else is lying. Your iPod Touch is no good. In fact it should stop working pretty soon. Probably by midnight Apple will remotely shut it down. :rolleyes:


    ;)

    I'm pretty sure iOS 6 will bring siri to the iPad 3 too. But I may be mistaken.

    I think Apple said at WWDC that Siri is coming to the new iPad with iOS6.

    Here's a question for Siri: "Where the heck is the 128GB Touch?" :D

    Yes, as soon as the new models start shipping your iPod touch will stop working. Might as well throw it out now

    Oh I know, right? I was hoping they'd keep the same thickness and give it 128. 64 is just not enough these days. :-/

    Given Apple's pricing scheme, $499 for a 128GB model would've been a commercial dud. They needed to restructure the pricing in order to add a 128GB option. And they certainly didn't want to do that and cut into their profit margin.

    I will not downsize my 64GB 4G iPod Touch. At the same time...

    ...when I can buy 32GB microSD cards for under $10, I've been leaning towards devices that offer microSD card slots. Although I own 1/2 dozen iOS devices, I also own a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and having a card slot is more useful and convenient than I originally thought it would be.

    Having said all that, I'm really torn between a 64GB 5G Touch and a Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0.

    I found my 5th generation iPod the other day (The first one that could play video). I instantly plugged it into itunes, restored it, loaded all my music back onto it and have began using it on my hifi seperates system instead of my iPhone and it works like a gem.

    Moral of the story: If you can still get good use out of the product and it satisfies your needs, then it is far from obsolete...
