    Was wondering about this, has anyone attempted it? it would be really cool to have a 120 gig ipod touch!

    It would be cheaper to buy a new iPod Touch than to put in a new Flash Drive. And do you know how much a 120 GB SSD is?

    It wouldn't be practical also.

    shame on Apple for not, AT THE VERY LEAST, integrating an expansion slot -_-

    You'd be left with epic proportions of failure

    i think they could redesign the ipod (make it a bit thicker) and allow 160GB easy

    thicker? you mean reshape the entire device you dont realise how big 160 gigs would be. the smallest nand flash chip is 32 gigs. you would need a biiig board to fit 5 nand chips on. the current ipod/iphone supports a single chip, now add 4 more. they might not be big chips, but remember you have to make more room on the mainboard to fit the extra 4 chips, plus the hardware to recognize and use the extra 4 nands. So it only being thicker would not work the device might be about 2-5x the same. and you guys were talking about SSD drives, they are standard 5.25 size like a PC HDD you cannot fit one in a ipod touch, unless you are making it huge.

    WHYYY?????

    Its not possible that you can have more than 32gb worth of stuff you need access to at one time, and IF you actually even have more than 32gb of stuff in your library it shouldnt matter cuz you can just rotate your things on and off your ipod, sorta like i do for my dvd's on my 8gb touch

    160gb is NOT necessary, and thats prolly why they only go up to 32gb

    Well, also anything over 64GB would be lucrously expensive. Who wants a $600 iPod. They wouldn't sell any, so there is no point.
