    I Pod Touch thinking about getting one

    For people who have them. Likes and dislikes?

    I like the idea of having access to the internet through Wi Fi with one of these, but not having to pay a monthly data charge to a phone company.

    iPod Touch unless something has changed wouldn't have a phone charge. Only accessible via wifi.

    And I'll start the Apple vs Android argument. The Samsung Galaxy Wifi is pretty nice. The biggest difference is that it has a 5" screen. But it really depends on whether you really want to transfer via itunes or are willing to use other programs.

    Re: I Pod Touch thinking about getting one

    I'm still a Blackberry user (i just love the physical keyboard), and I use my iPod Touch everyday (a lot). It sucks to always have to carry both devices, but I just deal with it. The apple apps are easier to use than the blackberry internet and BB apps. A lot of bars and restaurants have free wi-fi for their customers, so I can use it just about anywhere.

    I think you'll love the iPod touch, but you should wait a month, they usually refresh/update the iPods in the fall if I recall correctly.

    And this year's refresh will include a new connector - it would be a good idea to wait a bit.

    That being said, I've got an iPod touch and like it. One of the reasons I did get one is so that I could segregate the batteries of the cell phone and the music device.

    I absolutely loved mine. I had a 16gb for a few years before my car window got bashed in and it was stolen at the 5th & Walnut garage downtown.

    Re: I Pod Touch thinking about getting one

    I've had my 16gb a couple of years and really like it - except that I'm maxed out. I'll get a 64gb this fall. Good battery life. Love my podcasts and audiobooks and tunes. And hey, I've really improved my Tetris skills of old.

    Get a Nexus 7 but in reality touches are cool, but if you're set on a touch, wait until next month or so for the refresh.

    Re: I Pod Touch thinking about getting one

    Love my 32 gig. I've had it for quite a few years now. Other than when you are on the road, it seems you can get wifi just about anywhere, so looking up info/getting email is still pretty easy. I don't know how durable they are though, mine has taken two falls without issue, both onto a tile floor, but I think I got lucky, one put a tiny dent in the back, the other mushed the metal around the volum up/down buttons, but no screen damage. Actually has held up pretty well considering i've used it just about every day for the last 3 years or so. If you aren't going smartphone, it's definitely the next best thing.

    I also love mine, got it before I had a smartphone and it worked great. The only downfall of it is that the headphone connector is starting to go out but it is around five years old now.
