    Question Apple Event in September, Cheaper iPod touch with more capacity?
    MediaMemo via 'various' music industry sources reports that Apple is planning an event in the second week of September. These September events are usually reserved for launch of new iPod devices, refresh of the current ones or some iTunes related stuff. From the previous experience, it's probably going to be on Tuesday - September 8th.


    Release of the next-gen iPod touch and iPod nano are quite a possibility. These might sport the new and much rumored in-built camera and microphone and maybe some other unmentioned stuff. And as per a recent rumor by Daring Fireball, the iPod touch could even get a new memory option of 64GB followed by the removal of existing 8GB because iPod touch has two NAND slots in comparison to iPhone's one . . . Apple could even lower the price on this one to stay one step ahead of Microsoft's Zune HD.

    Another announcement could be for iTunes 9 with the rumored 'Social' features such as Last.fm integration as leaked in the images. Last but not the least, it could be the most anticipated Apple Tablet.

    Who knows what might be coming but we'll keep you informed!

    I dont understand. Some people seem to expect completely new revolutionary products every year. Of course thats not going to happen. The iPod Touch & iPhone will NOT get major changes/redesigns/overhauls anytime soon. All your really gonna see over the next few years are memory increases.
    Spoiler Alert, the next iPod Touch will have 64GB memory.....and the next one after that....128GB

    Hmm well they would only upgrade the memory on the iPod if they were adding something new. Maybe a camera?

    Pretty sure the new iPod touches will come with a camera and oled screen. Wouldn't expect apple to release "game changers" every year as most companies don't. This update will probably be more significant than last years refresh so I don't understand the fuss. Let's be fair there isn't really mch innovation with the zune HD either. Sure it looks sharp but it's simple their version of the iPod touch. At this point what else can really be done with an iPod anyways besides overhauling the OS which I bet comes with 4.0. /rant.

    Apple is just going to make there money off of what they can while they can. If that just means improving and offering more options to the iTouch than that's what they'll do. As soon as the market for them thins out they will dazzle us with something new and shiny.

    Under what strange law? There have been size upgrades without much change at all. Hell the last few generations of ipod classic had nothing new other than a slight case change and more storage space.

    i think it would be great if they got rid of the shiny back on the ipod touch and replaced it with something more scratch-resistant. the bacl on the current 2g just scratches way too easily.
