    my mate has one and they are pretty frickin awesome, i was thinking of selling my ipod video to get one, i do recomend you get one, maybe wait til price goes down if the price is bugging you, you know how consumer elctronics are anyway all the features it has make it a worthwhile purhcase

    The only way i would ever get one is if they made a version with a hard drive instead of flash memory. That way we could get much more space for the money.
    There may be problems with the data transer speed though.

    I wouldn't get one until the price goes down, because to be honest it's just an i-phone with no phone

    Well I just picked up a 160gig iPod Classic for $350 and that has been an awesome buy. It was just as expensive as an iTouch but when it comes down to it.. 160gig iPod or 16gig iTouch Somehow I think I'm getting a better bang for my buck by going with the iPod Classic. Plus the new design is much smaller, sleaker, and the new menu is great aside from a few bugs.

    I really want one myself. The fact that it uses Wi-Fi and has a very fast web browser is huge for me. Sounds to me like it does everything I carry my psp with me for but games much better lol.

    EDIT: Heres a side question. Anyone know if Ipod Touch requires iTunes to put media on it???

    I have one. 16GB, yes it requires itunes to be activated and to add music/videoes/photos/bookmarks/contacts/calendar.

    Once you 'jailbreak' it and enable calendar editing, themes, NES, dictionary, etc. it becomes very useful.

    [for those asking for a HDD version: invent a suitable battery and make it so.]

    if you jailbreak properly it will function like normal, I used "ijailbreak" for mac. But there are automatic applications for windows as well.
    Painless.

    Whether if it is worth the cost falls down to
    • how much storage you want [i have around 5gb free, so anything larger wouldnt really be worthwhile.]
    •The importance of a mobile Internet browser
    •The importance of being able to check your email[thanks to to jailbreak]
    •If you want an iphone but don't want to put up with the contract and ancient hardware: 2mp camera[no flash or video!], lack of 3g, etc.

    Posting from my iPod is fun.
