Hopefully this is true. It is the natural evolution of the touch, which is basically a smaller version of the ipad. It needs to be 4G tho. http://news.cnet.com/8301-27076_3-2...e-next-ipod-touch-will-have-3g/?tag=cnetRiver Dutch blog AppleSpot.nl claims that Apple's next-generation iPod Touch will sport 3G connectivity, giving people a way to access data while out on the go without needing to find a Wi-Fi hotspot, just like they do on the iPhone. A reader translation of the AppleSpot report from a reader on 9to5mac has the source outlet saying it will be identical to what Apple's already made available on the iPad, where you pick the carrier and get going, presumably managing the pre-paid data plan from right on the device.
