    Do you want Glass like the iPhone?

    Alu like the iPad

    Or chrome like it is now (oooh shiny)

    I used to want nice sleek aluminium, but after handling an iPhone 4 in the Apple Store, I want my new Touch to be like that.

    I was just thinking about making one of these earlier today :D. I personally love the glass back. Unfortunately, that seems less likely to be implemented. I could be happy with aluminum though.

    What — no liquid metal!?

    I think alu would be nice, to match iPod nano.

    I love the sturdy, flat back of the iPhone 4, but if they gave that to the iPod touch their designs would be far too similar (they've always been made of different materials.)

    I kind of want a flat aluminum backing, like the 1st gen, except aluminum instead of chrome, but I expect a curved aluminum backing like the iPad.

    There is a category for other, would be nice,but a bit unlikely xD

    Id love to see the redesign look square like the iPhone, i don't mind what material it is, as long as there is some sort of nice redesign

    Enriched uranium? :D But I don't think that would sell too well...

    I actually like the glass backing of the iPhone 4. I hope they do the same with the touch.
    If not, aluminum is up next.

    Glass like the iPhone 4, definitely. Getting sick of chrome backing all scratched up.

    True. While it may be shiny at first, the overall long-run is just terrible. They got rid of it with the Classic and the Nano. I think it's fair to say it's the iPod touch turn to lose the Chrome.

    Titanium would allow for durability and lightweight efficiency. Though I feel as though this would have a great effect on price since aluminum is far cheaper and readily available. On the flip side, I'd pay a pretty price for a polished tungsten carbide iPod Touch or iPhone. It would stay scratchless considering the long odds I'd ever drop it on a pile of diamonds.

    I like how you think, although titanium wouldn't be cheap. :(

    Isnt Tungsten cheaper than titanium? I think tungsten would be Apple's best bet for a scratch-less backing that also looks great :D

    iPad or iPhone design, it doesn't matter but not the scratchy chrome. :mad:

    It may be, I was just admitting I'd pay a premium for one either way. :)

    If they changed the iTouch to an iPad-like design, the average consumer would think of it as a smaller, cheaper iPad and buy it instead, thus eating into :apple:'s profit margins. And :apple: doesn't like things eating into its profit margins.
