That is not a good point. This story is a rumor. And it's not happening.
If you guys took some time to look at your empty arguments you'd realize the nonsense your were talking. The whole point of the iPod touch is that it fits in your pocket. The web, iTunes, the App Store, your e-mail, your music, your games, FaceTime - all in your pocket! There wont be a 6" iPod touch. Any larger than 4" and it's no longer pocketable, and more expensive to produce. If you want a large iPod touch the iPad is it, and more.
This message is not lost on Apple. That's why there's a big gap between the products - to make the purchasing decision easy. Do you want the Internet and all your music in your pocket, or do you want a tablet computer. It's a clear message.
Next iPod touch will be 4" max. Next iPad will be $399, possibly. If Apple can drive the price of the iPad down to $399, they will.
