Your 5 Most Wanted Features in the iPod touch/iPhone

What are the top 5 things that you want to see happen for the iPod touch and/or iPhone, whether it be a hardware or software update. I'm personally hoping for (in the iPod touch):

1. Even greater battery life and speaker
2. 64 GB Model in 2009
3. Search functions like in classic iPods!
4. Ability to play Click-Wheel games (with virtual click-wheel)
5. Ability to create over 9 pages of apps

What do you guys think?

Sounds like someone should just get a classic for xmas.

PS...Lounge might have been better for this post, but that's just me.
PPS...You seriously want the ability to play click-wheel games on the iPhone?

Mainly just want a better battery, and better system for games in the next few years. In 2-3 years it should get a major overhaul IMO.

Well I used to have a nano and had spent $18 on games, so I would like to be able to transfer them over anyways. Also, the click wheel is a great invention and I would love to be able to use it on my touch or iPhone.

In the 2009 update of touch/iPhone there should be:

-copy and paste
-64GB flash mem (it's been done in a USB, so why not. I'm betting this will happen)
-Undentable back! (mine is dented due to the earbud being smashed into it, I think I sat on it (fell) -.-)
-A scroll section on the top black part (opposite to where the home button is (backlight in the home button) I don't know why, just for kicks.
-FOLDER OPTIONS!! ie a games folder, a utility folder etc.!
-perspex coating on the chrome back of ALL iPods
-built in projector. Not really, but how freaking cool would it be??! there already exists one small enough to be put in, so why not!

Yeah, some things that would make me want to re-purchase my device

I second that! I would love the Notes program if it was a little less basic. I use it anyways though

#3 and #5 above.

Video recording.

Bluetooth as remote-control.

Real GPS software (with pre-stored maps and voice guidance) from somebody.

WiFi N so I can turn off my old router and use N for all my systems.

An upgrade to match the speed and video-out resolution (p not i) of the 2nd-gen Touch.

Better-sounding earbuds. (I'm convinced that older Apple earbuds sounded better.)

Full-res, highly portable wearable display from someone. (Boxes and wires to a minimum, please: just a brick that snaps onto the phone--with an extension cable OPTIONAL--and a wire from there to the glasses.)

Edit to add: And a landscape keyboard in SOME apps, but not most: landscape means much smaller screen area, and that's not always going to work. (Plus I don't really like the big keyboard, since I prefer to type one-handed.)
