The non-iOS iPod is sort of an orphan these days.

Apple doesn't break down iPod models by sales, but they do offer four lines of iPods, only 1 of which—the iPod touch—runs iOS.

Depending on how you count, there are far more models of non-iOS iPods. The shuffle and nano are each available in 8 colors, and the classic in 2 colors. That's 18 different models.

The 4th generation touch is available in two storage capacities with 2 colors each, and the 5th gen touch is available in two storage capacities, with 6 colors for each.

That makes 16 models of iPod touch.

Having bored you with all that detail, I'll now concede that the various touch models have (for a few years now) accounted for more than 50% of all iPod sales. (Apple has acknowledged this during analyst conference calls following earnings reports.)

But they don't say if the iPod touch accounts for 51% or 99% of iPod sales. I suspect it's closer to 50% than 90%.
