Apple has sold over 100 million of its iPod touch since the portable media player was introduced in 2007. The iPod touch shares many features with the iPhone, and apparently is still popular even without the ability to make phone calls.
iPod touch: Over 100 million sold

Apple also added a 16GB Retina Display model to the iPod touch lineup on Thursday, adding a lower priced model to its current 4-inch display offerings. The US$229 model replaces the fourth generation iPod touch that was still available, giving all of Apple's current touch lineup the same screen and dual-core A5 processor.
The iPod touch has been a great option for kids and anyone that want's a phone-free media player, and it has proven to be a popular gaming platform, too. Despite the fact that the 16GB model doesn't include a rear-facing camera or wrist strap attachment, and is available only in silver, there's a good chance it'll sell well especially since it replaces the older fourth generation model and streamlines the product line.
