Classic has more features than touch?

Does the touch have...

1. Instant search (a no-brainer with the keyboard)
2. Notes function
3. Games (the basic ones)
4. Screen Lock
5. Stopwatch

?

1. yes
2. It wasn't mentioned. so as of now, it's a no. But I think that Apple will sell apps like that from iTunes for the touch. If not, someone will hack it off of the iPhone.
3. There will be games for it.
4. Yes.
5. I think that there's a stopwatch in the iPhone's clock widget, but I may be wrong (correct me if I am). If that's right, than it should be the same on the touch.

Don't kid yourself..

I could make a list a mile long of features the touch has and the classic does not.

Your reasoning is completely irrelevant to anything, the classic is worth nothing more than music and the occasional video, the touch does much more, it may not hold as much but that is about as much of an issue as not having screen lock for most people.

Does the classic have...

1. Wi-Fi
2. Touchscreen
3. Widescreen
4. A flash drive (That is a plus for me)
5. Multi-touch

Mine are real, usefull features, but go along with the theme of worthless and irrelevant features I'll add another

6. Calculator (Ha!)

1. Can you show proof? On all the videos of the touch interface, I can't see a search button anywhere, even on the 'More' section of the Music and Videos section. There should really be a global search field on the home screen.

And I think this screenshot http://www.engadget.com/photos/ipod-...nds-on/382913/ is of the iTunes store search...

There are two reasons to go with the classic and one is solved with the nano.

1. Capacity 80 or 160 GB is almost obscene .

2. Physical Controls that are easy to use while not looking at the device.

And as I said the Nano has the second one. Physical controls are good while driving.

Out...

The iPhone doesn't have search. I cant imagine baby brother ipod touch does either. Of course I may have missed it, but I tend to doubt that.

Ok, then. Thanks for clearing that up. I just thought that I remembered playing with an iPhone at the Apple store and seeing a search button. Since you own one, you should know better.

Here's a quick mockup I just made of a possible search function on iPod.

I religiously use the instant search function to find my music on iTunes, and it's a real no-brainer for me to bring it front-and-center to iPod. It might be a bit overkill for an iPhone, but I think since iPod is such a media-centered device, this would work well.

Just because you don't need the classic, doesn't mean other's dont. Some need a lot of storage. Some really really like their movies and must have them with them at all times. Some don't like touch screens, and like the original iPod interface. I'm in the later, I never have liked touch screens, but I don't need more then 5 GB of storage and only watch the ocassinal movie, so the nano is good for me.

Why should we have to pay for apps for the touch? You don't pay extra to have things like note pad and mail when buy a Mac.
