    I don't think that the 2nd gen touch and the 4th gen nano will be discontinued. I think that they will bump the prices of those devices down and introduce the new devices with the cameras alongside the current ones, similar to the new iPhone. Anyone else see this happening?

    very much. it seems (since im a nintendo fan) thats the way nintendo would usually go when they introduce new hardware. so i expect apple will do the same

    If they got the words nano or ipod touch in them the old ipod touch and Nano WILL be dis****inued. Its how it is new device comes in old one are dropped until they run out of them. Although they will continue to sell at a lower price until they run out.

    Only way they can keep manucfactering the old one is if like you said put new ones in a different catagory, but the camera alone isn't enough. Least what i think.

    Unless the camera is like a real camera ~ 7mp 5x optical zoom or something like that

    Ya but the most it can be is 3mp since the 3gs is 3mp. Also that would increase the price on the touch and nano by a good amount.

    I realize that they would not put any camera better than a 3mp

    but in order to make 2 separate lines of devices, this would have to happen- a large price difference

    If it does happen it will happen in the future cause if they did it now the ipod would be almost double the price. Would be nice to have a camera in and ipod with that great of quality drop the need of a camera think it will only happen though if Apple get into the camera business

    yer i agrree, it will be like.... pay a little bit more to get a built in camera

    if you are not going to use/need a camera... and just want a music player, then you pay the normal price for one with no added amount to get a camera

    For me, there is no need for a camera on the iPod touch... Which is why I'll still stick to my 2G and maintain the SonyE for camera and video...
