    If i'm not mistaken the iphone requires you to sync your music and videos with your itunes library. I hope this isn't the same for the ipod- would be a bummer. Any idea?

    Thanks

    yeah, I think a file manager is very important, if I m gonna use it as a PDA, I want it to be more like a computer, not only a $300 browser...

    From the specs page:

    * 8GB or 16GB flash drive1
    * Holds up to 1,750 or 3,500 songs in 128-Kbps AAC format2
    * Holds up to 10,000 or 20,000 iPod-viewable photos3
    * Holds up to 10 hours or 20 hours of video4
    * Stores data via USB flash drive

    No way to manage the files on the Touch itself, but the last bullet makes me believe it can act like a flash drive in "Disk Mode".

    Remember this thing runs the same OS X based OS as the iPhone so MobileFinder might work. If not then there will almost certainly be another 3rd party app for the job.

    Not being able to manage music manually is a real deal breaker.. It's gonna be a pain in the ass. Seriously hope the ipod touch hasn't taken the iphone-sync route.

    Heads up for those (like me) who were concerned about the iPod touch's ability to manually manage music

    According to the features guide pdf on http://www.apple.com/support/ipodtouch/ the the touch can manually manage music.

    Just read the manual. It's interesting that you can delete movies right from the iPod touch without syncing.

    I guess it's meant as a way to quickly free up a few hundred MBs if you need room to buy stuff from iTunes WiFi.
