"Is the Ipod Touch worth it?"

I was looking into purchasing an iPhone around christmas time and actually received the iPod Touch 32gb as a present.

The product almost defines quality. The build quality, as you can expect, is second to none for example.

However, in my opinion, i do have a hard time justifying the cost. Touch screen is just another fad that seems to be going on at the minute, and however pretty it looks, it wont last. Smudges will cover your screen and you will find yourself having to tilt the iPod away from sunlight just to see the screen.

Another problem is the back casing has no scratch resistance. It is remarkably easy to scratch, so i would recommend getting a carry pouch if you do purchase one.

Overall, i like the product, but i am somewhat a stickler for perfection (as should everyone who is paying upwards of £200 for a fad product) so i would not purchase one of these for myself. The cost just for the latest apple fad is to much for what is essentially an mp3 player with a few gimmicks.

    I think in time you'll want to rewrite this review. The more you use your ipod the more you'll get to appreciate the features. I'd argue the ipod touch is far more than just an ipod, its a web enabled device unlike most of the mp3 pack, it plays video files like many of the other mp3 player pack, but most importantly its a good gaming device i'd say mid way between a DS and a PSP. I do agree though first thing you should do when you buy one is buy a screen protector and a silicone case to keep it pristine.

Manufacturer's product description

Apple iPod touch offers millions of songs, thousands of games and countless hours of fun. Games designed for iPod touch technology are just a tap away. Browse hundreds of games from the App Store right on your iPod touch, download what you want, and you're ready to play. And add to your collection by shopping the iTunes Music Store from any Wi-Fi hotspot. 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.
