    There is only one other thread on the front page

    5" screen
    better camera
    3g/4g cellular access

    These options are quite bland and features like 3g of course will not happen.

    About only thing it doesn't do that would be handy is if it could do the dishes and laundry

    Otherwise it is fine just the way it is now...

    What about the Camera?

    The two things you mentioned and the camera HAS to be in the next generation.
    A 0.7 megapixel camera is unacceptable when a standard smartphone has at least 3 megapixels nowadays.

    Even though I hope it has a better camera I wouldn't bet on it.

    Why is GPS chip not even on the list?

    Is it that important to have phone connection- to download maps- for the GPS apps?

    Is it not technically possible?

    Is there just very little interest? (not from me!)

    What else is there to improve? Don't tell me the 4 inch or 3D cause that won't happen.

    Camera is guaranteed (99.9%) to improve

    Sadly GPS and 3G are features that the itouch will never receive so i decided against putting it on the list.

    How about two freakin seek buttons, I've been waiting for that since the 1st generation and apparently apple can't figure out that this would convert a bunch of the click wheel lovers to the touch because they could operate it without looking. There is plenty of room by the home button.

    but no, they stick two volume buttons on the side. whoopity do!

    128GB would be nice, then you could carry a decent library of movies with you.

    Though seeing as they haven't upped the nano capacity in 3 years, the classic in 4, and downgraded the shuffle to 2GB..I really doubt we will even see the iPod touch at 128GB if apple is to push a stupid cloud service obviously capacity updates are going to be a thing of the past.

    I just hope my iPhone has all of those things and more.

    I hope you're right about the camera, it would be a great upgrade to the Ipod touch.

    Physical buttons like iphone 4 would be nice, it is absurd there are rumors saying a touch-activated home button.
    That would be a huge turn off for the itouch.
    The more the better, since it will be the number 5, lets hope Apple does have some moderately big upgrades :)
    I can't see what else they can really improve on, it teams they intentionally put in a 0.7 MP camera so that they could improve it for the 5th gen.

    The better question is whether the 5 gen itouch would have iphone 4's camera or would have a 3MP camera.

    LED flash and auto focus would also be welcoming, I'm hoping Apple adds that too/

    I'm hoping the greatest capacity will be 128 GB, but I don't think it is likely that it will happen.

    a 128 GB one will render the classic useless and Jobs has said the classic would not been eliminated- further proof a 128 gb one wouldnt come out.

    I have less than 3GB of music, 128 GB is basically a computer hard drive in a mobile device, i doubt that most people will even need 64 gb let alone 128 gb
    The chrome color has no reason to change unless the back does change but Apple will still separate the iphone and itouch so i'm thinking same chrome color with same chrome back for the 5g.

    This is also interesting.
    It could be the low quality camera used in the Touch was that was all that could be fit in the thinner format but if a 5MP thinner camera module is available perhaps we will see it..

    Yep could be, I just read that on the front page, the bigger question would be if Apple were willing to take on the cost of the new cameras. I'm sure they won't raise the price of the itouch but unless Apple suddenly turns giddy ,something won't be added(that was supposed to be added) price increase at the expense of the newer better camera.

    Crossfade in the iPod app. That's all I ask. Some Apple programmer could knock that out before lunch.

    Megapixels = Happyness?

    I would be satisfied if battery life and RAM are increased.

    I can live with the cameras. More megapixels does not automagically mean better pictures. In this application, it's arugable. But a point-and-shoot? Questionable.
