Now they gave it a new name, the iPod classic. I would call these newer iPod classics by their name, they aren't 6G iPods. So the new iPods are still 2G iPod shuffle, 3G iPod nano, 1G iPod classic, and 1G iPod touch. If anything, that iPod touch deserves to be called the 6G iPod.

I suppose it might really depend on the iPod's future. In 9-12 months, will Apple even offer anything like an iPod classic? If the touch will eventually use a hard disk, as the traditional iPod always has, and if the classic model is axed, will it lose the "touch" moniker? Would it then be the 7G iPod?

I'd say, to make it easier, the classic should be the 1G classic, and the touch should be the 1G touch. Then, if Apple decides to offer a later product solely called 'iPod", that'll be the 6G. Otherwise, we might end up back-tracking, calling certain iPods "true 6G" or what have you. Then again, what defines a "generation"?

I agree with you in the naming and I have no idea where Apple is going. Maybe they are phasing out the sole iPod name and going with different variations. The iPod classic might be the last hardware scroll wheel device that we see from Apple. In another year, they could very well release a 2G iPod touch that ends up replacing everything they have except for the iPod nano and iPod shuffle. Apple is throwing everyone for a loop here with the naming. At ilounge, people are arguing that all past generation iPods (ie the 1G, 2G, 4G, 4G photo, 5G, and 5.5G) are called iPod classic as that is what Steve Jobs said. That means that the recently released iPod classic would be known at the 6G iPod. I think they were taking his speech too literal though.

So I too will be calling the new iPods the 1G iPod touch and the 1G iPod classic.

I edited my previous post in this thread with this link, but am posting here so it can be seen by people reading the latest posts to the thread:

Apple and Steve Jobs are offering a $100 Apple store credit for previous iPhone purchasers (as a measure of "goodwill"):
