    Wait. The new one will most probably be released this September.

    buy one! it'll be worth it in the long run as apple clamps down on jailbreak exploits! ipt5g will be the same except it will have internal systems to ensure no third party apps over ride it!

    I'd say waiting is a good idea to be honest. But that's because I've never jailbroken a product. If you do want to jailbreak it, then I'd probably follow the above advice saying get 1 now. For the afore said reasons. You can't be certain Apple won't stop the jail breaking of their next iPod touch.

    However, it is of course possible that Apple will keep selling the iPod touch 4G 8GB version and only offer an iPod touch 5G with 32GB and 64GB memory.

    if you need it now and you absolutely cant wait until september then buy it now..its a great product and it will support iOS 5 which is a big deal..If you are not in such a hurry then i would say that you wait for another month..A new ipod touch is always better and it will support some new features..I guess in the end it depends on your current needs:rolleyes:

    would the price of the ipod 5g 8 gig increase if they do a refresh like 3g where the 8 gig model was the same as the previous generation?
