    With a new iphone rolling out this summer and rumors that it might make it's way to Verizon. Does this mean that a new iPod will be soon out, possible with a camera and mic and software upgrades? I am torn on slapping down the $300 bucks for the Gen 3 iPod if there is going to be a newer, better one soon. Also if the iPhone makes it way to Verizon.

    Need sugestions and opinions... I am rookie to the apple world and I am getting read to make the plunge.

    Or maybe wait for the iPad 2.0?

    HELP!!!!

    Thanks,
    Rich

    It sounds like you are entertaining several options... new iPhone, new iPod Touch, or new iPad? Any way you decide to go, keep in mind that you can always upgrade down the road and fetch a fairly good price on eBay if your gadget is in good condition. The iPhone is going to be the real stickler -- if you buy new, you're looking at a 2-year contract. If you want something to tide you over, you might consider buying a used iPhone and signing up on AT&T month-to-month so that you have your options wide open in the summer (when the new iPhone is expected).

    We know quite a bit about the new iPad but we know virtually nothing about other new Apple products -- I can't tell you much at all about what to expect for a new iPod Touch -- but one thing is for certain - whatever you buy now, there will likely be something new and shiny in a year's time, so if you are waiting for the latest and greatest, you could find yourself always waiting! Just take the plunge and then save some $$ and sell your used gadget for the next new one down the road.

    just like iBri said, take the plunge. I'm spending $500+ this weekend on a new iPad, know for sure I will have to pay for updates, and will want Gen2 in a year, which will probably have a camera, cheaper 3G, etc. Who cares, it's just $$. We don't have it, but Mr. Visa, says, go ahead and swipe!

    If the iPhone was going to be on Verizon then the iPad would also be on Verizon, since it is not, then I do not see Verizon getting the iPhone

    Question: Is the iPad 2G and 3G or just 3G

    iBri, what does buying a used iPhone entail? Does that mean that you can keep your current month to month plan with whatever provider you're with and just pay upfront for the phone?

    There will likely be a new iPod touch in September and I suspect it will have a camera and of course ship with 4.0.

    Go ahead and take the plunge...I recently had bought an iTouch 3Gen, and ended up liking the user experience so much that I found a used 3GS on Craigslist. Sold my Blackberry, and just about covered the 3GS purchase.

    Now if I could sell the itouch, I'd be ahead, but my wife got her paws on it. Now I wonder if I'll be looking for another iPhone?

    Go ahead and buy it and sell it when the new version comes out. Just don't have it engraved just like what other people do; engrave "please call when found" and their contact number. Who wants a second hand ipod with somebody else's number.
