    Since the price has dropped to 159 ($199) for the 16GB model it looks tempting however I have a few questions; does the 16GB have a back camera as I've heard conflicting reports?

    I'm an Android user (sorry) I carry a Note3 but have a iPad Mini with Retina. I'm looking to tether my phones signal to my iPod for iMessage and a bit of music, instagram (better on iOS) and a few snaps!

    Is the camera okay?
    A5 chip? Is it bad? My iPad flies however it's A7! So any lag?

    The old 16 Gb models don't have a back camera, but the new ones do.

    The camera is pretty good, but the Note 3 is probably better by a little bit. The A5 chip is 3 years old, so it is pretty slow compared to the A7, and it lags a little while doing certain tasks. As long as you don't plan on playing any hardcore games the A5 should be just fine.

    I think it will be fine for what you want to use it for. The 159 model has a rear camera. How much music do you have? Do you think 16GB will be enough space, depending on how much music you have?

    There won't be over 5 to 10 apps so lots of space for music apps will just be like snapchat, Facebook, messenger, twitter and maybe BBM. So I'm guessing that'll take about 250mb MAX (I'll be clearing out junk too). So I'm guessing a lot of song space, any estimation? Oh and G+ and Hangouts

    I've got 40-50 apps & a lot of photos & 3 videos on my 16GB iPod 5th Gen & still got about 6GB of free space.

    If you already have the mini then what's the point ? But if your are like me and very active it's too cumbersome to carry around easily when you are very active, I would wait till 6 comes out and get the 32 gig, the 16 gig get use up very fast.

    I mostly use my iphone as a ipod, because is easy to carry especially when I running with my huskies

    Yes, except for the lightning cable, it's a good device. I got my 64GB when they first came out at a premium price, but it's served me well.
