RIght there already is the 160 ipod classic (you knew that right?!), I've heard rumours but nothing concrete of a 128 ipod touch (lord alone knows what that's going to cost!).  What people are now doing is getting a 5th gen ipod video and sticking a 256 msata ssd in.  They are also sticking a 240 gig hard drive in as well.

 

Cheers

My classic is really old and looking LOD to Solo/Fostex. If new model is lighting line out it would be a different choice instead of the venturecraft 30 pin to USB.

I'm sure they will change it- they seem to be changing all their devices to the knew pins.

Yes this is my concern 

 

because I have so many Lod 30 pin to USB 

now with the new lightning look like not so much cable I can do DIY Lightnng to USB , because the lightning connector to small to fit thicker cable .

 

the same like CL class - dV use mini B USB , now I have limited cable I can do with this 

Ones

It is strange that Apple has not come out with larger iTouch...memory is cheap...64GB jump drive is $25-50??

 

At one time the classic had a 250GB HDD...

 

One can only assume that the iCloud is the reason for holding back larger drives...I would like to see 1TB portability...WD drives are under $100 for 1.5TB.

 

64GB is wayyy too small for hi-rez.

If you do a search on youtube for ipod classic swop hard drive, you'll see videos on how to do it.  There's a choice for the 5th and 7th gen of a 240 gig toshiba hard drive available on ebay for about £80 or so.  Or if you have a 5th gen you can swop the hard drive out for a 256 msata (needs a certain adaptor, again on ebay or amazon)ssd drive.


Cheers
