"iPod Touch 16GB - Pros and Cons"

I found the iPod touch (16 GB) very easy to use. Having had no experience with the iPhone or an iPod Touch before it is easy to pick up and use straight away. On iTunes the iPod touch works exactly the same way as other ipods and only requires an iTunes update from the apple website.
The internet on it is quite slow, but then its not designed to be used as a personal computer so i think this can be forgiven. When using the keypad, it was a little boxy and it is easy to hit 2 buttons at the same time.
The iPod touch 16GB can be found for only £35 more than iPod Classic, and when decinding between the two, the Ipod Touch is well worth the extra.

Product Information : Apple iPod touch MA627ZO/A 16 GB First Generation

Manufacturer's product description

Touch comes to iPod. The Apple iPod touch boasts the multi-touch interface - the revolutionary technology that made iPhone a hit is now on one amazing iPod. Its gorgeous 3.5-inch widescreen display lets you touch your music in Cover Flow and watch video. Browse the web with Safari and watch YouTube videos on the first-ever Wi-Fi iPod. If a picture says a thousand words, think of what all the album art in your collection might say. With Cover Flow on iPod touch, you can flick through your music to find the album you want to hear. And when you do, a quick tap of the cover flips it over to display a track list. Another tap starts the music. The 3.5-inch display gives you video like nothing you've seen before on a portable device. Watch your favorite movie. Catch up on television shows, anywhere. Enjoy video podcasts. Play music videos. All using multi-touch technology that lets you bring up onscreen controls and go widescreen (or back to full screen) with a tap. iPod touch holds photos you sync via iTunes. Flick to scroll through thumbnails. Tap to view full screen. Rotate for landscape format. Or perform some sleight of hand by opening two fingers to zoom in. You can even play slideshows, complete with music and transitions. Set any photo as your wallpaper to personalize your iPod touch...with a touch. With Apple's Safari browser built in, iPod touch is the only iPod that gives you wireless access to the web, everywhere you go. See websites the way they were designed to be seen. Sync your bookmarks or add a few as you go. Search the web using the touchscreen keyboard. Zoom in and out by tapping the multi-touch display. Got a bit of a YouTube addiction? iPod touch feeds it from anywhere with a special YouTube player built right in. Watch featured videos, check out the most viewed, search for something specific, then bookmark your favorites for future reference. It's all the fun of YouTube - pocket-size. iPod touch features the same interface as iPhone. Built to take full advantage of the large 3.5-inch display, the multi-touch interface lets you control everything using only your fingers. So you can glide through albums with Cover Flow, flick through photos and enlarge them with a pinch, or zoom in and out on a section of a web page. And iPod touch features a touchscreen QWERTY keyboard perfect for browsing the web in Safari, searching for videos on YouTube, finding music on the iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store, or adding new contacts.
