iPod Touch 32GB £249 + Apples average rise for cellular radio £130 = £379
iPhone 32GB = £599
Would slim down the amount of users who would bother with the iPhone. You could get the 64GB iPod touch with Cellular for £430 and still save yourself money. get Skype credit say £10 a month and off you go.

Apple needs to stick to one design. Have the iPod and the iPhone have the same exact hardware. Just rip the cell hardware out and call it a touch.

No doubt, as Apple intended, I automatically factor in the cost of a smart cover when it comes to the iPad mini, so there is a bit more of a price difference to distinguish the two.
The only way the iPod touch is going anywhere is if they merge it with the nano or go back in the Shuffle direction with the nano and fill the void with the mini-touch successor.

Apparently I'm the odd man out but I don't see why this would be so unrealistic...
Nano for portability; iPad Mini for music, semi-portability, data, reading, gaming, etc, etc. Except for portability, I think the iPad Mini could definitely make Apple wonder if they really need to keep the iPT around.
The pricing is lower than an iPT and there are so many used iPhones and iPTs in the market that teenagers can get an iDevice w/out signing up for cell service. Granted, the latter wont make Apple money but if they did start thinking of phasing out a product, the iPT makes sense to eliminate....

Apple wants to be sure you only own Apple (as any company). Getting rid of the Touch will mean you buy a 32 or 64G iPhone to store your music on. You thoughts will be, "I can pay more for the higher gig iPhone because I won't buy an iPod or this is a 'two for one' deal". Apple makes more off the higher gig phones.

I say keep the iTouch as it fills a void. It is the best touch mp3 player out there..and obviously much more. Not sure why it has to start at 32GB now and raise the cost by $100. I say apple goes back to making 16GB devices and drop the price..that will fix the price point and buyers complaining about the Mini/Touch being so close in price.

I've lost my iPod Touch yesterday and I'll get a neu one today just for portability. There's wi-fi ervery where and it's cool, for phone calls and messages i use my Blackberry 9900.

i was surprised enough when they introduced the 5th gen with siri, new design and all. That either means their keeping it, or this is it's last run...
