    Does anyone have any idea will the new IPOD toucch 4G work or be compatable with current docking systems.

    I was thinking of buying the Gear 4 House Party4. It says on their website compatable with IPOD touch 2nd and 3rd Gen.

    here's what I would guess: Apple will continue to use the 30-pin dock connector (quite obviously) but the body design of the 4G touch may change. this does not mean it won't fit in docking systems given that Apple has been using the Universal Dock approach when it comes to docking ports and many iPod clock radio device companies have followed suit, therefore Apple need only include a newly shaped dock adapter for the new design and it will fit perfectly fine into any current docking device that supports the iPod dock adapters.

    as long as its not wider than it is now it will fit in the universal docking systems for ipods and iphones. whatyou wanna make sure is that it will be compatible with 3rd gen which according to your post the one your loooking at is, because apple changed the way their newer producst charge. i thought it applied to the 2nd gen aswell but i took my sisters and put it onto my old ihome and it charged and played perfectly so idk.

    you're probably better off just holding off until its released and then double check with the company on the compatibility of the new one.

    Does the iPhone 4 work in older docking systems?! If it does then so will the iPod Touch 4.

    From my experience all the docking stuff is actually OS based. For example when 3.0 came out my old iHome would play my Touch 1G, but lost all other functionality like use of the remote control, use as an alarm setting, and charging, but it had full functionality with a 2G Touch on 2.1.

    That's just my experience, not 100% positive though.
