If I had this I wouldn’t be using it much like the iPod touch that I’ve bought for my mom. It hasn’t been used for 7 months.. lol

I did enjoy reading those rumors.

It’s sad that something that would have been cool didn’t make their way to the device.

Some things like: built-in SD card expansion slot, removable batteries, front facing camera.

But looking at Apple’s trend. They don’t want to make people to open things, it complicates things for lesser knowledgeable people, or hard to pick up on things people.

I think I’ll just buy the latest iPod touch… XD
