TiPb Asks: What do you want in the next generation iPod touch?
We've been talking so much about the iPhone 5 lately that it feels as if the iPod touch 5 is flying a little under the radar. Usually the iPod touch gets to headline Apple's annual fall special event but this year it sounds like the iPhone 5 is going to be stealing that thunder as well. Also, while iPod touch used to have the kids and the "I want iOS but I don't want an iPhone" market all to itself, it now has to share that with iPad, which isn't as portable but can be easier to use in some circumstances.
So how about we give the iPod touch 5 some love and ask what you want to see Apple announce for it this year?
An Apple A5 chipset seems a given, and that should be great for gaming with its 9x performance (and AirPlay mirroring in iOS 5, which is fabulous.)
It's already got a Retina Display but not as good a quality one as the iPhone. Maybe Apple could raise the bar on that? Speaking of which, while iPad Touch 4 got cameras, they were... disappointing to say the least. Could Apple finally get serious about iPod touch optics and give us at least 5 megapixels on the back and a FaceTime HD camera on the front?
128GB as an option is something our readers always ask for. Could Apple finally do it? (And maybe retire the iPod classic at the same time?) And the big question -- could they add a 3G radio like the iPad has had since it launch?
What else could they do? What else would you want them to do? 3D? Bigger screen? Glowing Apple logo? It's your turn to tell us!
