    Hi guys, new to the forum! recent convert!

    I'm in desperatly need of a new ipod and am looking for some advice, I sold my ipod classic to buy a touch as the SDK and the 32GB convinced me. However, i've heard apple have cancelled one of the manufacturing companies creating hardware for the ipod touch and nano. Does this mean that the touch will be replaced by a newer model in september - this close to the SDK launch? I guess what i'm asking is 'is it the right thing to do to wait until september for the new touch?, or do you think they won't replace the touch and i should buy one now?

    I'd love to know your thoughts

    Buy it now, there is no reason to wait, 6 months is a long time to be without an iPod, as foolish as that sounds. The only reason i could see waiting would be for a camera like that of the iPhone but that may never come. I bought my iPod Touch 3 weeks ago and love it.
    Take the plunge!

    whats going to be in the new itouch in september? Is it something new for the 32gb that they will be putting someting new in. Or higher capacity on the gb.
    I saw in one website that this person was playing instraments whith his itouch. Can you do that in the 16 or 32gb, or even playing games in them?

    They'll most likely just increase the capacity.

    It'll most likely be a capacity upgrade (16GB moves to $299, 32 to $399, 8 eliminated from product line). That's just my guess, though. As far as hardware revisions go, I can't see them adding more than tactile volume control buttons, but even that seems unlikely.

    What you're saying about the games can be done with any ipod touch there is right now. It's whaty they call "jailbroken." You can google the term and I'm sure you''ll find out if you really want to do it to your ipod touch. I say go ahead and buy it, no point in waiting for a capacity upgrade for months.

    The hardware could easily be updated. Faster processor. More memory, added functions (bluetooth and a small chance for a camera). Now that almost everyone is jumping onto the touchscreen bandwagon, the Touch needs to push ahead some to keep it's lead. Camera would be the sure thing, but least likely. Bluetooth almost seems mandatory given bluetooth in everything else PC-like that Apple makes.
