Why the F**k should i have a camera on my Digital Audio Player? I would really prefer support to codecs like Ogg, Flac, Mpc ecc ecc.

Peculiar. Apple typically does not include older versions of their products in their typical line up after a refresh. This makes me wonder if the new versions will just be minor refreshes with a camera, and thats it? Has Apple finally hit the peverbial brick wall with iPod advancements?

Not seeing this reflected anywhere yet... wonder how long it will take Amazon, etc. to ship them for even less...

They're probably trying to grab a little more market share before the Zune HD debuts next week and blows them out of the water.

a camera is so retarded. arguggi is right. its a frigging music player. but a radio receiver on the ipod.

and these price points are retarded. only $30 difference between 16 and 32GB?

Chances are your cell phone that was free and came with a camera will be more useful, convenient, and the cheaper deal. Although the iPhone camera imaging software is pretty cool to mess with. If the touch is anything like it, it may have a following for those that like to tinker and edit pictures and if it has the ability to take/edit movies like the iPhone 3s can.

So the pricing on the NEW Ipod Touch will still be the same as the old pricing, presumably...That seems to indicate a doubling of capacity, as they usualy do either of the two.


I'm still going with the Zune HD.

I am also going with the zune hd.

My old zune worked better with my HTPC than my ipod ever did. I sold my ipod after 2 weeks and bought an archos 5. I will be buying the zune hd as my 3 year old takes over my archos during air travel.

I will never buy another ipod.

They do this every year when they release new iPods. Price down the old ones to clear stock and make room for the new units. And I still can't believe people are bitching about a camera. I guarantee if the Zune HD had a camera it would be a nice feature well worth your time.

I've never owned an ipod, although I've bought them for family and friends. I just dislike Apple immensely and the type of people who buy their stuff.

If the only diff btw. the old touch and new touch is a camera, that's idiotic. Everyone has a camera already on their cell phones.
