For as long as the iPod touch has been around there has always been rumors of Apple adding 3G support somewhat like they do with the current iPad 2 3G. This has never happened but now the rumor of it happening is up again and this time I think it could happen. You see people have been saying the iPod is dead. This may be somewhat true but remember the iPod touch has been for people who don’t want to pay per month. The iPod touch has been a great way to do this and now it could be you don’t need to pay by month if you don’t want to you can pay as you go and use iMessages for texts and Skype for calls instead of a pre-paid iPhone where you need texts and calls and all that stuff you don’t by an iPod for. You buy an iPod touch for Games, Downloading music, Talking with friends, and for what I see most people use it for. THE WEB. Not texting not calling just using the web with their apps or safari. That’s why the 3G iPod touch is a good idea. Here is a statement posted on macrumors
After talking with multiple people over the past few weeks, we had a lengthy chat with one person who gave us great news about the next iPod Touch. We’ve used this person in the past, but they did qualify their remarks, saying that the iPod Touch changes should make it, but there’s no guarantee the changes will be ready for fall. The 3G iPod Touch idea intrigued us so much back in July, and we’ve been trying to find one of our contacts who can give some credence to the idea. A few have declined to comment, while others honestly have no idea, but the source for this report says that Apple is indeed working on a 3G iPod Touch. Apple is intent on announcing the device during their September event which they usually save for their iPod line, but will include the iPhone as well this year.
All and all I hope they have the options of 3G+wifi or Wifi only. We will see this month hopefully with the arrival of the iPhone 5 as well.
