Hi.
Apparently, many people think that the next iPod Nano (due out in September 2008) is going to have touch capabilities, like a small version of the iPod Touch.
Anyone else think this? What do you think?
I've got a 1st gen Nano and thinking of getting a new one. Should I get the current Nano or wait?
Thanks :)

I'd be surprised if it were touch screen; its just too small to work well. As I own/use the current iPod touch I can't imagine it working anywhere near as well on a device less than half the size.

As for should you wait? If you wait you'll wait forever, there's always something new around the corner....

Yeah, you're right. The screen is too small for it to be touch - unless they have some knid of combo where you use buttons and touch for a few things.
Who knows? (apart from the chair of Apple) :)

Is it just me that doesn't buy in to the touch screen concept? Give me clicky buttons that I can feel without having to pull the damned thing out of my pocket or fear of accidentally changing some setting in a stupid sub-sub-sub-menu which I'll never be able to find again any day!

lol, I love touch screens - apart from when they get really greasy from fingerprints. Don't you just hate that, people? :)
