Apple will still be selling the fourth-gen iPod touch at the same base price of $199 for a 16GB and will be selling the new 5th generation iPod touch for $299 for a 32GB model. The new iPod touch will be shipping in October alongside the new 7th generation iPod nano and the iPod shuffle.

    Yes! My I’ve been waiting for them to release the next gen. I don’t like them price increase, but I can handle it.

      I’ve also been waiting for the new gen as my old ipod touch 4th gen broke. And here in australia the price of the ipod touch 5g 32gb is the same price for the 32gb ipod touch 4g. :)
