    We should have a camera. It is a slap in our face to give the nano one but not the touch.

    Exactly! And the iPod touch has more uses for a camera. Apple is losing all the sales from potential upgraders.

    Exactly.
    Sending video through email, upload to youtube, etc.
    I was planning on laying down $400 for the upgrade to 64gb today.
    Not anymore.

    No we dont. Trust me.
    Oh, and if you think Apple will be affected by your grand total of 5 boycotts, you're mistaken. But yeah, they'll totally change their mind if you send feedback.

    CRAP!
    MACRUMORS WANTS A CAMERA ON THE IPOD TOUCH WE HAVENT RELEASED, NEVER SAID WE WILL RELEASE, AND NEVER PROMISED.

    Keep at it guys, you'll wear 'em down. :rolleyes:

    Why do you feel like you are entitled to a camera in an iPod touch? If you don't like it, you don't have to buy it. But don't feel like they owe you anything.

    Was going for a 16GB touch, which they don't have, so I would have jumped the gun for the 32GB. Not saying the touch sucks, but the iPod nano is looking so great, and so much less $$. FM Radio, with RDS, Pause, Rewind, and iTunes tagging?! Awesome IMHO! Yay!! I <3 107.7 The End :D

    Sold 8GB iPod touch 2nd Gen in anticipation of $300 32GB iPod touch w/ video camera. Will be ordering a 16GB iPod nano w/ video camera from Amazon and buying a Verizon iPhone next Summer when they are (hopefully) released.

    The new iPod nano is impressive; Nike+, Pedometer, Mic, FM Tuner and Video Camera, not to mention the extremely compact design. A winner all around!

    No we don't. Yes it's a kick in the teeth giving the smallest screen iPod all these fancy features and not adding anything new to the iPod Touch. But what the hell. Just don't buy it. We all know it's the next addition to the iPod Touch whenever that may be so wait until then.

    I bet by boycotting the touch, Apple's share will tumble at LEAST 50% by the end of trading today! :rolleyes:

    I really don't understand why people set themselves up for these expecatations and when its not met, they cry boycott. I think Apple would be thrilled at NOT taking your money. And I'm the last person on earth to praise Apple.

    +1 by me.The exact same thoughts.

    You're right. I remember people saying the same stuff when the 3GS went out. Now,everyone has a 3GS...

    Frustrated

    Apple, you are the company that BRAGS that you don't need to do market research.

    APPLE, DO YOUR MARKET RESEARCH.

    IF you don't know that Touch users were clammering for a camera, you don't know your customer base.

    If you're simply scared that iPod Touch users won't buy an iPhone if they've got a camera, then STOP SELLING THE FRICKIN TOUCH AND MOVE ON.

    Either way, STOP TREATING YOUR CUSTOMERS WITH DISRESPECT.

    Back to School

    I passed up the Back to School free ipod touch deal bc I thought that the new ones would have cameras. Oh well, maybe I'll get a 16GB Nano in a couple of months.

    I must be the lucky one then, Apple have saved me some money today.
    I would have upgraded my touch if the new one had some great new features but now I will take comfort in the fact that I do not need to give any more to Apple for now.

    I never understood the cannibalizing sales thing. People are going to buy what they perceive is the best thing is over time. So just make something as functional as you want and over time it'll win you more repeat customers, grow your market share, just as well as over analyzing everything and intentionally leaving out features here and there, etc.

    They should be fully invested in making the touch/iphone as great as they can. That is the price of success. Everyone's a critic, esp. me. But the days of Apple being an underdog in anything are long gone. They can't play that card in my book anymore. Even in their core business, computers, they are not underdogs by any means. Have you seen a college campus? A full 40% of computers are mac, and that's 40% of laptops going to one company. Windows is maybe 60%, but that's split among hp, dell, lenovo, etc.

    I'm assuming its related to the product malfunction rumor they had and will just be delayed.

    I doubt Apple reads these forums. Which means they barely listen to customers.
