The reason the nano got the camera was because of two things. One, it was a shot at the Flip. Two, it is one of the better selling iPods other than Touch which they need to keep afloat or else the market will saturate.

Now, I think you'll see a camera addition on the next Touch but I'm just educatingly guessing.

Actually, it wouldn't bother me either. I know it won't have it because of two things. 1) it goes against Apple's design process which is minimalism. Unless they switch their standard cord to an HDMI cord and it charges with it (which would be cool) it won't happen. 2) They like to pimp accessories. They're as bad as Sony about it. It will be an accessory, I bet.

That's a more solid educated guess.

This is one of the comments I meant to address before the thread took off while I didn't have time to follow it. I don't see your logic there. I am well aware 4G makes speed faster. The problem isn't speed it's availableness. The fact is 4G simply isn't available. It's the same reason fiber optics hasn't made a breakthrough or gone mainstream. Companies not investing in infrastructure much. ATT takes in billions, can't handle traffic, gives you a box to make your house a signal booster and charges you for it, and they have millions of more customers thanks to ONE phone; yet they spend almost zero on infrastructure making their network 4G or even available everywhere.

4G is barely available places. That's the reason I wouldn't be too concerned yet. It's much like, ironically, your argument against HTML5 becoming mainstream. Here is the same deal, yet you're making it a lynch pin in your choices.

My only concern with the EVO is that Qualcomm is about to release a slew of new processors that are going to kick ass... but they won't be out until end of 2010.
That's a concern, to be sure, but it will ALWAYS be a concern. On the flip side, Apple's new iPhone will likely have their processor. A similar one to that which powers the iPad and is a beast.
