    No new iPod Touch then...

    Then again, the new Nano is now basically an "iTouch" and I kinda like it. Might get that.

    Oh, and

    Can the new Nano use apps? There's no mention of it, so I'm guessing no... [​IMG] I guess it'll have to get jailbroken for that then [​IMG] (obv I don't mean regular iPhone apps, I mean ones made specially for the Nano)

    Things I'm interested in:

    iOS 4.1 (HDR photos, Game center)
    Epic's new game
    iPod Nano (sexay!)

    Not bad, I hope I'll be able to put iOS 4.1 on my iPhone 4 soon.
    Woah, that new game looks sexay! I wonder how it will play. Might buy it, especially if it supports multiplayer.
    ...And I wouldn't ever have thought it, but after getting used to iTunes, I might even consider an iPod Nano, even if it kinda goes against my already having an iPhone 4 [​IMG] But it still seems nice, especially for running.

    Oh man... Apple, please don't drop your support for the 2g iPod touch ;_;
    You released my model a year ago, you CAN'T DROP SUPPORT! Please!
    :/
    But if the support stays [​IMG]
    I would love to see the gamecenter ^,^

    The iPod nano looks kinda cool, but... xD
    Really apple? xD

    iPod shuffle = 1st gen iPod shuffle but a bit smaller, and the battery lasts less...
    (Once, I had lost my shuffle, half a year later, I found it. Happy I was, it seemed it was still turned on...
    I plugged-in my earbuds, and I heard music XD HALF A YEAR! A BATTERY o.O)

    New iPod touch is err... Like always, a generation further :/
    A bit slimmer, 'better' battery, better performance.
    But they have added cameras, didn't expect that [​IMG]
    Oh, and retina
    Newest iPhone to iPod touch = iPhone - gps, light censor, phone, and 3g...
    xD

    Myeah, my opinion [​IMG]

    AppleTV: Streaming's gonna be the gotcha for me. If it'll play my xvids and such, then cool. I'm thinking it probably won't.

    Whoa. I don't really care for Apple products aside from their asthetics, capacity, and functionality. I'm more of appreciative of whoever Apple's product designer and marketer is, I've been a non-Apple user for a while now, just looking in from outside, until recently...

    I just upgraded my Zune80(GB) to an iPod Classic 160GB a few weeks ago. I did it mainly for the capacity upgrade and to finally own an iPod and see if I like it. Well, aside from the GUI/interface of the actual iPod/iTunes, it's pretty good (I LOVED the Zune GUI and it;s software's GUI as well). I even dropped it on a hard cement surface while walking home, it bounced a couple feet away, and it still works, just a few paint dings!

    So, I think the Shuffle and Nano redesigns are... UGGO. But I haven't had the chance to hold it in my hands, so I'm just talking out of my ass. A little too small this time, Apple. At least they'll cash in on people who lose 'em like pennies and want to buy back another one. The $50 price tag on the Shuffle is reallllly gonna make Apple bank. I know a ton of people who want to pick up an MP3 player still in this day and age, but always complain about pricetags and complications. There's no longer and excuse with this new Shuffle out.

    All in all, I don't personally care about any of these announcements. [​IMG] *Pats iPod Classic*

    this is what i've been waiting for, i'm seriously considering buying an Itouch now. The 3g wasn't worth the money, but this is. damn it's nice. Hopefully it'll be on sale soon here in europe.

    I really want that iPod Touch 4. I can't believe that I bought my ipod touch 8gb 2g(MC model) for $200 last years November when I could have bought this this year for the 30 dollars more. Now I need to sell my iPod Touch 2G ASAP.

    Woah, your post made me think about I might be selling my iPod for the new 4g [​IMG]
    I got the same model as you btw

    Together with my old ds, with original r4, I might be selling them for the new one [​IMG]
    I would get about 150 euro's for those (including the service of jailbreaking for free, and the r4 for ds, including installing random wanted stuff on iPod touch, and instructions for roms homebrew on ds [​IMG])
    Might even be a bit more [​IMG]
    Oh, and don't worry, I've got a DSi with ak2i ^^

    That would be awesome [​IMG]
    I'm seriously considering this...
    I have never ever sold anything of my own older properties xD

    Yes, I was a bit skeptical about that statement by Steve Jobs, but while Apple love to flash their products, they aren't liars. It might not have the best GAMES, but it has the most sales. Apple is becoming a serious contender in this handheld market and neither competitor seem to care.

    iPod Nano is now officially useless. A tiny touchscreen?! Really? Its not practical. Sure I reckon your UI is very usable Apple but its not gonna be practical for scrolling through albums (due to the small size of the screen). You've had to enlarge the fonts etc. to make it usable meaning there's a lot less room on the screen for anything else. This is by far the worst looking Apple product I have ever seen.

    God, this again? Why is everyone bitching about the Nano when the only real downfall is the price? Apart from that, you don't NEED a camera on a Nano, there is iPhone and iPod touch for that. It looks much better now, and the GUI is great.
