"If you've held off on purchasing an iPod Touch because it hasn't offered enough of the iPhone's functionality or storage, it may be time to reconsider unbuckling your credit card. Granted, the display could be a bit brighter and its color a little more balanced.
I still desire external volume controls. And it's been a long time since you've been asked to pay $500 for a 30-ish GB iPod. But the inclusion of Mail, Stocks, Maps, Weather and Notes has transformed the iPod Touch. Now, not only is it a solid and attractive portable media player, but, finally, it's a darned fine Internet communications device as well."
