I'm currently on the fence about purchasing a 32gb touch; that A8 processor is so tempting.

I'm actually thinking about it. It'll be a nice device to beta test on and use as a camera, but I'm not sure if I can justify it at this point. Perhaps in <insert number of months> when Apple has refurbished models I'll get one.

I'll be buying a 32GB Space Gray (probably in August). My 3rd gen is still usable but I want a camera and a newer version of iOS.

Edit: a 64GB model (got confused and specified the size I have now).

Yeah...I wasn't planning on it but that blue is really drawing me in. Ill just get the 16gb...That storage space has always met my needs.

I'll also have to admit, that blue colour, wow it looks so amazing. It makes me want to buy it (although, as I said before, I can't afford it for now). I have planned getting into game development however (iOS included), so I'll still have to buy it eventually.

Seriously considering it. My iPhone 4s that I use to listen to music and YouTube can't keep up with its lack of RAM

I voted NO, not because it is not a great update but only because it does not entirely meet my needs.
It is almost perfect, bar the lack of GPS which would have made it the perfect activity tracker companion.

Also, I noticed how the volume controls are drawn on the right side of the device, rather than the left side.
Good observations! Those are very interesting. I will add that it also has the rounded design of the iPhone 6 when it shouldn't, and that it should have the small square in the home button, just like the iPhone 5c's image in the compare iPhones section.

Oddly enough, the tech specs page shows a wire-frame iPod with iPhone 6 antenna banding:
View attachment 568908
check to see how long before that drawing is replaced as Apple seem to

A - make mistakes with putting things on their web pages

B - do it deliberately to drum up rumours and keep customers from jumping ship to other manufactures

So is a new smaller iPhone model due to be announced in September?

I won't be getting one, but I'm very interested to see the geek bench score on it because it should score higher than the iPhone 6.

I always wait a bit and never get an Apple product when they are first released.

I'm going to get the 128GB Touch 6 probably at the end of August. By then, I'll be able to play with it at the Apple store, see all the initial feedback and if there are any issues, and see a teardown of the Touch 6.

If only the blue had a black front! :(
Anything black and blue sounds painful :D.

No, I have an iPhone 6 so that's just as powerful, and I prefer the bigger screen. Can do all and more, so no need for me to get an ipod touch too.
