    ^ As the title says. ^
    I expect apple just to add just the A4, gyro, and retina display, for 'gaming." No FaceTime, no back camera, no microphone, no new design.
    Anyone else expecting a disappointing update too?

    They said they expect to sell 10 million FaceTime devices by the end of the year, and so far only ~3m iPhone 4s have sold. Doubt their going to pull off 7 million sales in 4 months.

    Also, Apple has developed a tick-tock pattern when releasing iDevices; a major upgrade, then the next year, a speedier revision.

    iPod touch, iPod touch 2G, 3G, 4G.
    iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G, 3Gs, iPhone 4.

    I think an overhaul isn't too far out of the question.

    retina display is great, a4 is awesome (because my ipod touch 2g sux) and the design should be new, like the iphone 4... yes there is microphone, the third gen already has a mic...

    The ones in bold are the speedier ones then? I though the ipod touch 3g IS the speedier one to the 2g.

    Ok that's what I thought. I was about to say.

    Anyway I hope the dual cam and a mic. Omg this is the 'magical' part Steve was talking about.

    I'm fairly sure it's going to have a front-facing camera for Facetime because of the ability to enter the persons e-mail address instead of his/her phone number.

    i agree with you i doubt there will be any cameras at all or a built in mic i hate to sound so pessimistic but every year we all get our hopes up about all the features we want and then when it comes out we get disappointed so i figure if i keep my expectations low i wont be disappointed and if im wrong ill have something to be excited about
