    I still like the touch, though I know sales have continued to decline as more people have gotten smart phones.

    I received a mini iPad at Christmas but returned it. I might get one later, if Apple doesn't continue keep it a generation or two behind, technology wise.

    Right now, I prefer the touch. I just ordered a touch 5 64GB. I use my current touch (4th gen 64GB) as a sort of disposable device -- I don't put contacts, email or such on it, so if it gets ripped off on the subway or something, I'm not going to worry about it. I also like that it's small enough to hold and manipulate in one hand if I'm standing on the subway. And I feel relaxed about using it without worrying about draining my phone battery.

    When my touch 5 arrives, my touch 4 will go to my husband, so it can replace the iPhone 3G that's permanently docked in the kitchen so he can stream while he cooks.

    Well, sort of returned it, since I sold it to a co-worker.

    Which do you think sells better, the touch or classic?

    I'd guess touch, because it lets you do more, like play games and use other apps, which makes it appeal to a wider demographic.

    :)

    The mini is a small iPad.

    I got the 64 GB iPhone partly because it can be a touch (iPod). And in October I will get a new 64GB phone and my 4S will live in my car as my music player, always on power.

    I was glad when they finally started selling 64GB iPhones. That's mostly why I got a 4S. My husband inherited my 4, which he now uses as a phone. I need at least 64GB for a media player. My husband leaves an old iPod in his car, with 80GBs. I usually listen to audiobooks, so that wouldn't work for me because I often like to keep listening when I get out of the car.
