I'm weighing this up at the moment, but leaning towards the iPod touch for various reasons as below: - Most of the iPod docks are still incompatible with the new "lightning" port.... So the iPod Touch straight away has more accessories. - The iPod Touch 4G has a bigger screen and a full version of iOS making it easier to navigate. - The iPod Touch supports Airplay as well as Bluetooth for more connectivity. I don't really need 16gb of torage or the extra colours. I can get an 8GB 4G iPod touch through the refurb store for the same price as the iPod Nano, I strongly doubt my mother has 8GB worth of music. The primary use for it will be portable music and hooking it up to an iPod speaker dock at home. The new iPod Touch range is a little too expensive and I don't need Airplay video, just Airplay audio or Bluetooth. Am I missing something or is the iPod Touch 4G the answer I'm looking for?
