    So does that mean the new ipod touch, possibly the new ipod nano, will not play in the BOSE sound dock that I currently have? ...Because I spent 110$ to update the the connector to be able to charge my ipod touch 2g ...

    I would think the connector would stay the same. Makes no sense to change it again so quickly.

    I actually believe all of this but there's always room to crack a joke on the "According to people familiar with the matter" opening. ;)

    Here's hoping for a stellar iPod Touch as a soon to be Droid X owner I may want a Touch after all.

    they won't change the connector but it may not fit if they drastically change the dimensions on the ipod touch

    So was the 3rd gen iPod touch named the iPod2,2? I fail to see the logic behind this. I do think there is going to be some kind of redesign, but this isn't proof of it.

    Well, the 3rd generation iPod touch also got a version # bump, 2,1 to 3,1 even though it was a very crappy update with no external changes. Nonetheless, I expect the 4th gen to be amazing, but I just don't see this as any valid proof.

    I don't think that that proves there is going to be a redesign, but it proves there is a new iPod touch coming. There is a super high chance of a redesign coming though.

    Exactly. A new number proves a new model.... doesn't mean a redesign

    It definitely proves a new one is coming (aka there is 100% chance of a new touch of some sort at least before Christmas, but I don't think it will be that late), however, what it will look like and what specs it will have is up in the air.

    We will know when the event is coming about a week before it actually happens when Apple sends out the invites.

    Sorry guys, I should have done a bit more fact-checking before posting this


    I'm just excited about the new iPod touch. A lot of good things have happened in my life recently so I feel like splurging on something nice :)

    Facetime is over Wi Fi, and every version of the iPod touch has supported Wi Fi. No need to sign up for any kind of contract as it doesn't involve a cellular service.

    have you thought about a dock extender?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/M33-SendStation.../320548685113?pt=Other_MP3_Player_Accessories

    or there are now extension cables. just check ebay. they are $1. don't know if they work but I ordered one for 1 cent plus $3.99 shipping. so I will find out in a few weeks. i ordered it because if the cable works I can connect an iPad to my bose.

    Look at apples history, they're not going to stay with a design for more than two years. (computers don't count) the touch is overdue for a redesign
