I've just bought a 16GB iPod Touch. I've been saving, selling off old tech, ummming and ahhhhing about getting an MP3 player for some time. Getting the full deposit back from the landlord put me over the edge.
When I saw the touch/iPhone, I had a conundrum. The iPhone is way more expensive in terms of contract but does all the iPod Touch does. The one thing I'd want to do on the iPhone is surf the web but it's only 2G network. Which is shit.
So, I bought the Touch and I must say i'm impressed. It's the first apple thing I've bought and it was packaged beautifully. I mean beautifully. Normally, I wouldn't care but I do see what they mean by the experience. The touch screen is genius and with Wifi, I can surf the web on the toilet at home, at full N-speed. Great! And it's proper web browsing, not the ridiuclous crap I have to put up with on my current phone.
I'm currently syncing my mp3, which it's doing automatically. Then I'm going to get some movies on there for the bus ride home.
It's not a phone but then it doesn't need to be. They're opening up the development kit in the new year, which is great. I've not bought tech in a while, so it feels good to catch up with all the ipod carriers around me.
Having used it a bit, I am now a bit tempted to see what the Macs look like these days. Of course, bereft of games but it doesn't hurt to look.
