My question is more, why the fuck did they put a camera in the nano and not the new touches? If I had money, and they came out with a touch with a camera I'd sell this first gen one and get a new onein a heartbeat
another thing that might be the case is maybe they want to update the ipod touch and iphone hardware at the same events. So at this ipod event we get no update to the ipod touch (just capacity and speed) but then when the new iphones come out they will also update the ipod touch and re-brand it (and release the bigger itouch tablet). It would make more sense to have the ipod touch hardware be released with the iphone then with the ipod lineup, it is much more then an ipod.
