    dammit. I forgot my current 3G Nano has the same backing. I hate having cases. It just doesn't feel right. anyway, invisible shield isn't that bad :s

    as someone who's camera just broke one would have been nice



    solid, safe updates. I think flash and touch prices have to go down before they can increase their product range much more than it is.

    The 'special event' is dead, long live the 'special event'!



    they longer they wait to update to Montevina, the better our chances that a new case design is coming, I think.

    64GB would be at least an $900 Touch. The 32GB chips just came on the market.

    I know but we have no choice. I 'll have to get one too- from day one. I'll check that one out. I had a click shield one and there's one by Contour too- not bad.

    There's probably a lot of us in this boat. The price cuts offer some hope for a mid-2009 64GB Touch. (or not? LOL)

    Okay.



    Generation 1: 4.2 ounces, 22hrs battery life for audio

    Generation 2: 4.0 ounces, 36hrs battery life for audio



    Thinner at the edges; the new one is .5mm bigger at the thickest.



    Same steel back. Same glass front.



    Hi, rapid advances in power usage.

    If you want to look on the bright side ...



    Nothing is doing more to lower the prices of flash than Apple pushing all these flash iPods. It's a snowball that's only just begun to roll.

    Also the iPhone's Tech Specs should be monitored before and after 2.1 launch for battery life changes.

    More demand would increase the prices, not lower them.

    The camera would be a different beast GPS not so much a problem. The thing is it looks like Apple made a decision to go as small (thin) as possible, maybe not a bad idea but it eliminates a lot of possibilities. Frankly I think Apple could have done a bit better with the new Touches feature set but I will refrain from calling it an update failure until I get a hold of the new firmware.

    Yes, they would. Are you saying established and proven economic theory is wrong?



    If you say increased volume will lower prices then you're ignorant of the fact that most flash companies are selling them at a loss or close to it and are producing above demand.

    Still more expensive than an iPhone (under contract, obviously)... So that clinches the deal for me - iPhone it is!

    It's not possible to be cheaper than an iPhone since they are available for free by that logic.

    Nothing on the Apple site shows where the speaker(s) is/are. Ars Technica wrote there are descent sounding "speakers". Does anyone know if it's one or two and where it or they are?!?!? How can such a major new feature not even be explained in this article?!?



    Called Apple. They had to track down an engineer to finally tell me it's one speaker between the headphone jack and the comm/charge slot.

    At least call him Steve Skellington, if you must mock his weight.
