    Here's my theory about what Apple will do, it seems logical to me...


    Rather than just make the 32GB iPod Touch current generation the new low end model for 200$, I think that Apple will release an iPod Touch that has the same design as the current generation iPod Touch with a camera only on the back, along with 16GB of memory.

    The higher end models (32 & 64, maybe more?) would have a new design that incorporates two cameras for facetime, possibly LED flash and of course the new Retina display and gyroscopes.

    To give the low end product users something new as well as giving the new users something new.

    Sounds good in theory, but highly unlikely. We never get that many upgrades.

    All I gotta say is I hope we don't get stuck with a front camera only.

    Then more people would go for the lower end device. I think apple would want people to go for the high end device more.

    How do you figure that? The way he explained it, the higher end models would get more.

    Whenever Apple upgrades their products, they only do it at one piece of hardware at a time. When have they ever released two of the same products with very noticeable upgrades to the higher-end model? I say if they add a camera to a 32gb model, the 8gb will get one too.

    I think they'd do as it's now. A 3rd gen one, the cheapest, and then two 4th gen in both models 32 and 64gb. Both 4th gen with the same hardware.

    They won't make 2 different looking iPods, they'll all have to at least look the same!
