Simple question to you.  When does the $3120 go in two years?  Only people poor in math think their smartphones are subsidized without thinking how much money they paid the telephone company in two years. 
 Most people upgrade after the two year plan.  The phone company already has this factored in the price. 
The word subsidized really is a marketing gimmick.  You are paying back with the two year plan.  For exmaple, the AT&T $130/month two smartphones plan will cost you $3120 in two years.  Compare this to the $50 to $75 price of your wish. 
You can connect to internet via a smartphone which acts as a hotspot.  You do not need the cellular built in iPod because you need a smartphone anyway. 
How many iPod Touch Apple sold last quarter/year?  Apple could turn around the iPod business with todays changes.  I have been preaching Apple to start iPad model with 32GB for a long time. 
All these 'features' by Lyric/Nest can be easily done by programming.  Yet they hype it so they can charge premiums.  This is unapple.  Apple always bring new features to the masses with very reasonable prices.
According to this article Apple is planning to build iPad in US. 下一代iPad已經確定拉回美國生產 http://autos.udn.com/topic/car/news/article.jsp?type=article&f_SUB_ID=46&f_ART_ID=21613
How about the LeapPads by LeapFrog?  Are they tablets? 
It is becoming interesting and more interesting.  Google is most valuable that it can sell a glass that costs $75-$150 to make for $1500.  Yet all the Apple copycat companies in the world including Samsung dare not to make a cheaper knockoffs.  Why?   The reason is interesting.  Google is a tyrant  internet content provider.  Google will simply refuse to deliver content to any copycat glass wear.  The world has changed a lot.  I am afraid no one in Apple is able to deal...
How about the existing hundreds of millions of iPhone users?  I don't think Apple will like to alienate these users or force them to upgrade the phone.  Incorporating NFC Apple helps billions of Android users and hurt its own base.
