My old 60GB iPod photo has totally given up the ghost now, so I need another. I want either a 32GB or 64GB iPod Touch (no interest in an iPhone).
But should I get one now, or is Apple likely to introduce an updated model this year (so the prices of the old ones would drop)
Also, noticed on ebay lots of sellers selling the 64GB for around £220, as returned units with some warranty left. Apart from the reduced warranty, is there any real reason to be wary of these? Its just a pretty decent discount over Apple's £306
if your fone contract's due you could do what I did and get one free on a contract? I used affordablemobiles.co.uk which meant I didn't have to buy one. Admittedly now I wish I'd got an iphone, but I assumed that a smartphone+ipod touch=iphone, and with my clumsy tendancies at least I don't lose both. But I shall be getting the iphone 4...
Let's face it, it's an Apple product, the price sin't going to drop that much even if they do release a newer model!
You can always wait for "the new model" but at some point you just gotta buy what it is you want.
A collegue bought one in HMV brand new for £220.. so id give those fleabay ones a miss...
In general the iPods are pretty much bullet proof now they have moved away from mechanical storage. I would wait until the iPhone 4 dust settles and see what the new touch is like and decide if its worth stumping up for the new version or stick with a heavily reduced older but identical in almost every way but looks different version.
Did that make sense?
Oh I certainly wont be buying a newer model whatever they put in it, was just hoping it would cause a load of people to upgrade and sell their current ones
I'd be happy to wait a while but till September seems a long time away, I'm missing not having an ipod!
kevbaz - when was that? cheapest i can find on the net is about 270. £290 from HMV online
The iPod touch is probably the only Apple Product I like. I have the 64GB version and have had no problems at all. It just does what it does. I replaced the standard headphones though as the Apple ones are total rubbish.
I think it may have been the 32gb model not sure as hes not in today but it was only last weekend, might have been an instore deal?
alan - bought some sennheisers last week for exactly that reason. Such a difference from the standard ones! (I have a shuffle as well)
kevbaz - ill assume it was a 32 but ill have a check at the weekend anyway. £220 for a 64 would be quality but I wont hold my breath
I got the sennheisers too. The 450s (I think).
I've been looking at this too, but I dont want to pay more than £150 so was looking at the 8GB version. When the new ones come out is there actually going to be any real difference between the newer versions and existing ones? I read somewhere that they will be incorporating a camera into the new ones but to be honest, I dont want/need a camera.
What I'mi after is an MP3 player and something close to a PDA with wireless and thought that the iPod touch seemed like a good choice, anyone got any other recommendations. So how do you guys find the iPod touch? Recommended?
Can anyone say whether it is worth getting the 8GB version now? Will it continue to be supported?

I was reading somewhere else when they were compared to the iPhone and how older versions were no longer supported. Sounded a little bit strange to me, but then I know next to nothing about Apple products as you can see I just wanted to make sure before I purchased anything. ta
