by niche market i ment the people who never owned a tablet and want to buy one, well maybe its niche in the usa. plus will a new announcment really make u want to get a tablet more? or are you already sold? and iproducts were never considerd niche, niche markets are small markets that a certain type of people would be interested in the product. iproducts have always been mass market products
For me anything that has a bigger hard drive or space than what they had in recent years is the best. One of the reasons why I dont have a ipod Nano/touch but the classic.
Edit: And if I ever do get a new ipod, I'll be getting the classic before they finish the production on them ;x. (I have a 120 gb one (from 2008) but that 160 gb one is looking quite tempting ;p.)
