    Hey all, I'm a noob I know. Therefore, I have a noob question. I already read the FAQ and at least I am not posting my question there! Anyways, I never bought an iPod before, I always use other MP3 players. But I was very impressed with the iPod Touch. I wanted to buy one but 16GB wasn't enough. Now that 32GB is out, I am getting closer. But I can't see myself spending $500 on it! Then I read that there is going to be a $100 price drop. So I decided to go for it. THEN

    my Apple friend told me that they are going to upgrade the design (Bigger screen?). Is this so? What are some things I should wait for/watch out for when I go to buy my 32GB? Thanks,

    Read Wikipedia, read articles, do research before you buy anything. Don't just ask questions. Read a lot first.

    Bigger screen? No.
    More space? Yes.
    Price Drop? Probably Not anytime soon.

    My advice is to get it after late June once the SDK and Firmware 2.0 arrives so you'll get it pre-installed on you iPod. That's only if you can wait.

    If you can't, just go for it now. A new generation of iPod Touch won't come fast so you'll be fine for hardware purposes. For software, if you buy now and don't care about a couple dollars here or there then you can buy the SDK for a nominal fee (god knows what Appple says by nominal

    Well, before the iPod was really not that different from other products available. The quality was better, but I was always turned off by the fact that the initial cost is high, any accessories will also cost a lot, and it will be obsolete after such a short period of time, even in the digital age. But when the Touch came out, it was quite unique to me. When I saw my friends Touch, I was amazed at all the features and the actual size. When the $100 price break comes (and 2.0 in June) I think it will be worth it. Thanks all for your input and advice.
