They would be stupid not to. The retina display is positively gorgeous, and makes every i-LCD screen they've used look pathetic by comparison, including the higher resolution iPad.
This iPod touch really needs to be all of the following, I'm just wondering which Apple will leave out to differentiate (and disappoint)?
-Unibody aluminum design (like a tiny iPad).
-5 megapixel Camera with Flash. HD video recording, of course.
-Apple A4 processor
-512mb of RAM
-16, 32, 64 gb of storage.
-FaceTime camera on the front.
That's literally all Apple needs to do to bring the iPod touch up to par with the iPhone 4. And that's really all it needs. Most people use this one for music and games, so I won't be surprised if there is some small "new" feature related to music that is only for the iPod touch. I also expect Game Center to be released at the same time and be a big part of the demonstration of the new iPod touch.
What they really need to do is have a new iPad with the same exact features, ready to go in September.
