The Touch presses all the right buttons, but the novelty can wear off

Super-smooth surfing

iPod touch (16GB) review

 

The 16GB version of the iPod touch offers twice the storage for just extra £70. Is it worth the extra cash or are you wiser to get by on just 8GB?

I am a music junkie. I hate scroll wheels because my music collection is well taken care of (LAME MP3 3.97 VBR 4), imbedded album art -- I am browsing through pictures rather than text files. I am busy.Those statements alone define why this is the...

Coverflow intuitiveness; design; functionality; super computer in a slab of metal; omits the crappy phone part

Bluetooth and a camera - non-phone users still want to take pictures and exchange files; only 32gb tops...for now

Though it is a great little toy, love everything about it except of course the battery life. The itunes app syncs nicely without any hassle and the apps so far have all worked exceptionally well.

just an all around great machine
