Are they discontinuing the HDD based iPods? or are they simply upping the HD space? Like instead of it being 160GB be 220 GB?

What are the sizes of the new iPod touch?

Yeah i wanted GPS and a Camera, i want those features without selling my soul to a telecom company. (for the iPhone)

that wont happen anytime soon.

why would you need an iphone then? ;) they want to draw a clear line between the two, obviously.

Then they should do it with software developing too considering half the apps want to look for where you are but oops can't no gps in touch.

wow guess won't be buying new touch different back design and extra button.. meh bring on the gps in it already :\

How are they going to do gps... you'd have to preload google maps... or have a link where the maps are updated... hence why its only on a cell phone.

That would be quite a lot of wasted space just to store maps on there. You're better off having a separate GPS device in that case.

both use google maps and if that was the case then they mayaswell just give the flick on all the gps features that attempt to be used under the touch i mean if they are going to do it with the software people don't want half ass'd apps that try use a lacking or very flimsey feature they should just go all or nothing.

both do cache the maps during the session which is the point plus there's obviously plenty of space spare for it.

Yes but my gps doesnt act as a music player,pda , and games player also. The ipod touch would be able to do it all.

PS Isnt that how nav units do it now anyway? they have all the maps on them then you buy sd cards to update the preloaded ones. Why would the ipod touch do it any differently.

It does have wifi... but how many times have you been walking around the street or driving down the road and manage to keep the same wifi connection... if you can even find any... you'd be constantly connecting and reconnecting. Not good

And for preloading... I wonder how much space that'd use... especially on maximum magnification... you'd be better off buying a standalone gps.

Exactly, they can do it, but they wont, probably to keep it cheaper than the iPhone.

If only tho...

2.1 for the iPhone - ""This is a big update, it fixes lots of bugs. Fewer dropped calls, big battery life improvements. No crashes with Apps. Backing up is faster." Nice."

We'll hold you to that. Steve.

EDIT: That seems like 2.1 is just bug fixes. Oh great.
