    THIS IS NOT THE REAL DEAL -- IT'S A PREDICTION ON WHAT WILL BE EXPECTED TO BE RELEASED COME SEPTEMBER 2009. PLEASE LEAVE FEEDBACK AS IT TOOK SOME EFFORT CREATING THE SPLASH PAGE.

    Okay guys, I was a bit bored, but I decided to think that there could be a chance that the next iPod touch will most likely be called iPod touch S (Speed) thanks to it's big brother, the 3G S. I was assuming Apple would call it the iPod touch 3G, but I'm sure this would cause confusion and people would mistaken it as a phone (there's people who aren't very bright...). The name iPod touch would fit right in with the "S" family. So, here's what I put up together. Screenshot isn't real, but it could be reality come September.

    As you can see below, I added a camera on the back, and added the same speed that the iPhone 3G S has. Knowing Apple, they would take this route because they like taking baby-steps when releasing their products. They tend to add a few new features and continue to add stuff in the coming years.

    Remember that a lot of people buy the iPhone because they don't feel like carrying around 2 different devices. Lazy bastards......

    Why did you put Wireless N? It's useless. It's been useless since 2002, when it first came out. Barely any people have Wireless N routers (From then AND now). Most access points use b/g. Wireless N is ONLY good for home theaters so you can wirelessly stream HD (Pref 1080p) stuff to your little Computers plugged into the Television when you don't want to use Ethernet cables.

    Also, Why get an iPhone.
