iPod touch: What Are You Going to Do?
The Apple event came and went with little more than a memory upgrade for the mid-tier iPod touch. Should I stick with what I've got? Should I buy a refurbished 16 or 32GB 2G iPod touch? Should I pick up a 32GB 3G iPod touch? Or should I keep waiting for the camera I was hoping would have been in the new iPod later down the road?
The day before the Apple event, there was a rumor on the Internet that stated that a run of bad parts (the cameras) would delay the launch of the new 3G iPod touch. Turns out that Apple wasn't going to hold up the new features that they could deliver.
iFixit.com recently posted take apart directions for the 3G iPod touch that reveals that the motherboard does in fact have space for a 5th Gen iPod Nano style camera in it. iFitix also revealed that the Wi-Fi chip inside the new touch is capable of 802.11n, provided that Apple release the driver to take full advantage of the chip.
So, iPod fans, what are we going to do? Since the 32 and 64GB iPod touch models are exactly "cheap", I think I'll be sticking with my 1G iPod touch until my headphone jack stops working or Apple finally gives the iPod touch the features it's price tag demands.
