    Let me get this straight... It does 1280x720 at 30 fps but can't even take a photo at that resolution!??!

    Nah, looks like they kept it as is.

    So, not as good as the iPhone camera. Hopefully it at least takes sharp photos.

    Yeah. I remember squirting songs to my friends all the time with my Zune. Till I realized nobody had one. 160 million iTunes accounts. 15 Zune owners. How is that catch-up?

    Update: The iPod Classic is still alive an well (at least for another generation), with zero changes.

    Technologically... It's definitely playing 'catch up'.

    If you want GPS, then buy an iPhone. I'm frankly surprised they are coming this close to the iPhone with these latest models. The only thing separating them now is the GPS and a cell phone chip.

    Nope, still listed on the apple website. Just no update.

    is the deal breaker for me. Would like to get a couple so my wife and I can face time each other, but Trader Joe's doesn't have WiFi, so far as I know.



    And 64 gig max is another deal breaker - not nearly enough for very much video storage. (I am a TED freak.)



    Oh well, I can still get a 160 gig Classic for $223 from Amazon (and not have to pay shipping or the confiscatory 8% CA sales tax).

    No, it is to thin. The iPhone 4 camera takes up a bit of space depth wise.

    This really sucks. That means it takes 0.7 MP pictures in back...

    I can't really find anything to knock. These are a fantastic upgrade to the Touch line. I just ordered one for my son for his birthday. He's going to be one seriously happy guy (and he'll stop asking to use my iPhone so I win too...).

    And a slight difference in weight and thickness.

    Definitely nothing to sneeze at. I guess there will always be complainers. No 5mp camera, GPS, 3G... Come on people. This is the biggest change the iPod Touch has seen in years.



    Edit: Plus they added HDR to probably help out the iPod Touch camera, a bit.

    The only two "gripes" here are at least a 2MP camera in back, and a new backing (material). Everything else is awesome. I just don't take HD video as much as I would take pics. Even 1280x800 photos would be better than 960 x 720.

    Steve said "all new designs for every model". Is the classic not considered an iPod?

    Can someone confirm this? I looked all over the apple site and it would appear that the new iPod Nano has lost its video playing AND TAKING capabilities. Seems like a step backward since it was the first iPod to be able to take video!

    I wanted an answer to that as well.
