    Seeing that it is becoming more and more likely that new ipods are going to be released this week, I would like to see how many of us here are going to jump right in and buy one.

    If it is touchscreen, I will try to get my parent's to buy me one for my birthday in about a month, otherwise I'll probably pick up a 5.5G for cheap.

    I work not far from an Apple store, and I'll be there as soon as they have some available. I'm hoping for boosted storage but honestly, I'll live with it. I don't even care about WiFi — what I do care about is whether I'll be able to turn it off. I prefer a decent battery life :D

    As for waiting out potential problems, well, that's what AppleCare is for. I suppose I would wait for a while normally, but in my case my long standing 20GB gave up the ghost a while back and I've been using a first gen shuffle since, which is great but I much prefer having my whole library on me. Of course, I haven't been able to do that for a while, but a lot is better than nothing at all. My library is 57GB now, so 120GB futureproofs me for a good while!

    Yup, if it has Safari then I can go on Meebo and use MSN,GTalk etc. on my iPod:) and also send free text messages (my school has WiFi all over). Also with the mic accessories (if not built in) I'm sure there will be a way to use Skype Out on it.

    No, all my money is tied into buying new lenses for my camera and I have a perfectly good iPhone that I use as my iPod.

    If there's a touch screen then I can use it as a PDA (limited at the moment) so I will be buying that - unless its too expensive.

    WiFi will bump up the amount I am willing to spend a fair bit.

    If the Touch iPod has a HDD not flash I might hesitate and buy a flash ipod and wait for the iPhone to come to Oz.

    It's gotta have OS X, a touch screen, and wifi for me to consider it. I know that's sorta demanding, but I wouldn't use it much for just music. My collection isn't even 2gb...

    I will be getting one as soon as I sell my current 5.5g iPod if they are all that they are hyped up to be, touchscreen etc. I have been waiting 2 years for a touch screen iPod. Lol I have even been saving all my money for this aswell :)

    I will most likely buy if it has wifi, but if it doesnt... My old photo ipod is still chugging along just fine.

    iPhone-schmiphone. It's very cool, but my priority well and above a phone is music. 8GB is just nowhere near enough for the whole phone/music combo to be a sensible get.

    We're talking about the next iPod, not the iPhone :) So far, we do not know what the 6G's storage numbers will be (it will most likely not be 4 and 8 GB)

    It really depends on what it is. For a while I was desperate to upgrade my 3G, but then I got a new battery and now I have around 20hours battery life, and I don't really want video. If it has WiFi, then its very likely I'll get it.

    Bah, I forgot to quote the previous post to mine. If the 6G iPod only comes with 8GB, I might have to reconsider my vote, haha.

    I'll probably buy a fat nano if they upped the storage to 16G.

    Not in the immediate future. I need a new one since my current one is full (I've got about 20 more gigs of music I'd like to store on there). But, I don't use it often and I'm trying to save money so an iPod isn't really a necessity right now.

    And I won't buy anything that doesn't have at least 100 gigs of storage. So even if I had money, if these new iPods max out at 80, I won't buy one. My music library is 78 gigs (so it won't fit on an 80 gig since it's more like 75 formatted).
