No upgrades to the iPod Touch means one of two things: Apple will soon EOL it, or there is a huge upgrade with a re-design on the way in 2012.
I would think the latter is true. If the iPhone 5 is indeed a huge re-design then it makes sense that the iPod Touch would also get some sort of bump in design amd specs. Maybe a 3G antenna, larger display, just more of an "iPad mini" than a traditional iPod. I think the Touch has gotten a bit stale in its looks and could use a refresh. But I gotta say, the current model looks fantastic in white!

I don't think Apple will ever get rid of the iPod Touch. It has a huge market for those that want iOS capabilities but don't want or can't afford the data plans that come along with iPhones. This includes parents buying iOS devices for their children, folks who use their phones for nothing more than calling and want a separate "fun" device, etc.
I expect a full iPod Touch redesign soon enough, but I doubt they'll add a 3G antenna or any mobile network capabilities, as that would bring it too close in spec to the iPhone itself.
