If you're looking for a phone as well as the Siri feature, I suggest getting the iPhone 5 for the following reasons:
- If you buy an iPod touch, you are paying the full price out-of-pocket, and will still have to get a new phone when your HTC's temporary lease on life expires.
- Since the iPhone has all the features of the new iPod touch plus the communication features of the phone, it seems to make sense to replace two devices with a single one that will do everything you're looking for.
- Since you say you are eligible for an upgrade, you can get the phone for as little as $199 with the carrier subsidy. The iPod touch starts at $199 and doesn't have the phone features.
It seems like a clear choice from my perspective, in favor of the iPhone 5. And think of this: if you were going to buy a phone (even a non-iPhone) plus an iPod touch, you would probably spend $199 for each device. For that price, you could get the 64GB model of the iPhone 5.

What I meant was, I don't usually jump straight away onto upgrades, unless it's been a certain amount of time since the last one I bought. My carrier upgrade isn't till next June so I would be buying the phone earlier than the upgrade. I'm also checking with the carrier about the possibility of getting the iPhone 5 and then keeping the same contract but with a sim designed for the new iPhone. Thank you for your help though, I think it'll depend on other factors as well.
