Worth getting an iPod 4g?

Not sure if this is the right section, if it's not, sorry.

Is it worth getting a 4th gen 32gb ipod now, or waiting till ipod5 comes out?

Opinions? :P

Thanks.

If you can get one RIGHT NOW (as in within a week), I'd say go for it. If you have a contract thats not due for a few weeks or a month or longer, then I would wait.

A contract for an iPod? Really now? Reading is a vital skill.

If you're going to spend all summer gaming on the iOS, you might as well get it now. If not, wait three months or so.

I say get one. The next iPod Touch probably won't have any huge advantages over this one. Maybe hardware updates, a slightly better camera, slightly altered shape... nothing important that'll affect game playing, not like the jump from 3rd gen screens to retina display. Possibly a faster processor, but practically every game runs fine on the 4th gen anyway so there's no huge rush to upgrade yet.

What he said, there probably won't be any signiicant feature on the iPod 5 Gen.

I disagree ipods due for a major jump next version (if apple actually makes it)
3rd and 4th gen was barely a jump at all the only difference are the cameras, gyro and the retina screen.

I'd say look at the ipad 2 if you want a rough estimate of the next models.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out
