I think you should wait until the iPod touch is available in stores, then try it out (or maybe check out an iPhone - the interface is almost identical). If you're having doubts, thats the only way you'll put them to rest.

The new nano is very cool...I ordered a 4gb silver one to add to my collection. I like it the best out of all of the iPods released yesterday. The touch is cool...but what's the point if you have an iPhone?!?! If you don't or haven't used an iPhone the touch will have an awesome WOW factor once you get your hands on it..much more than the classic. So I'd say go with the touch or nano. If you need the extra storage then you have no choice but to go with the classic.

ahhh...who am I kidding I like them all!

EDIT: iPhone wins overall though.

I checked out the new Nano today, definitely better looking in person. The only thing I didn't like was that they went back to the metallic back like the 1st generation nano's.

I will be ordering an 8GB nano w/ video when they become available on Amazon.

Here is how you have to look at the two models:

The iPod Classic is what is says it is: an iPod. It's mostly a music player that plays video too. It has massive storage for your entire collection.

The iPod Touch is really a video player and Internet device that also plays music. It has room for all of your favorite albums and movies, but not all unless you have a really small collection.

So it boils down to what you need your iPod to do. The clickwheel is great. The touch is too. I wouldn't buy an iPod based solely on that feature. I'd buy based on which is more practical for my needs. They are both great.

How about an AT&T/Cingular store? Maybe you could play with an iPhone to get a feel for the iPod touch.

You've really got to try it yourself, thats the only way you'll determine whether or not you like the new interface.
