    BUILT IN SPEAKERS! Im seriously considering buying another one and handing down my current one to my gf. Discuss everything you guys like or dont like. I also think it looks pretty darn sexy too.

    LOL, and what are you going to do with the built in speakers? I'm completely disappointed. Nothing new except those stupid speakers.

    I have mixed feelings about it. Disappointed that it's not as revolutionary as I was hopping for but happy that I won't feel tempted to upgrade and expend the extra $$$. I guess I'll wait for rev 3 of the touch.

    ever find yourself without headphones? ever wanna show your friends a song and dont have some sort of dock around you? ever wanna just browse through the iTunes store but dont have headphones or a dock to listen to the 30sec previews....theres a lot of things that the speakers could be used for....i mean whats an mp3 player (or at least a high end one) without built in speakers....

    Yeah but really, I mean, the new touch is not impressive at all

    The Nike+ presumably might find it's way to the next iPhone. Plus, the integration into new apps will be pretty great. Thinner to boot. A decent show Apple put on.

    Have you ever find yourself in a toilet without paper? OH MY GOD. Please. How many mp3 players do you know without headphones. And the sound from the speakers is always bad bad bad bad.

    Well said. The external speakers are huge for me. Bluetooth would have been nice though.

    Maybe, but hardly the huge price drops some were talking about. Still $400 for the 32GB, which is pricey.

    Still a very nice iPod, though.

    That may be true but having speakers give users another option. More options = better. :)

    I was soo hoping for a 64Gb version ...

    Back to the waiting game. Perhaps a nano???

    I am not, repeat not, about to have a phone in my mp3 player.

    Man, this sucks... My mother's friend just bought my iPod touch for me in Hong Kong last week (I live in Malaysia, it's more expensive here). Any chance she can exchange it for the iPod touch or something?

    Actually, I carry mine around without headphones all the time, because I use it for internet access and organization more than I do for music. If we were talking an iPod nano you might have a point, but the Touch's functionality goes far beyond 'mp3 player'. It's dumb to assume that everyone's going to keep theirs wrapped in headphone cable just in case.

    Sound from speakers is fine fine fine if you're using it to show something on YouTube, etc.

    The bigger deal here is the built-in volume toggle. Halle-freaking-lujah.

    Relative to the previous $400 for the 16GB I'd say it's a pretty good deal.

    I thought speaker was a long shot, but I'm glad they got it into that insanely thin device!

    Love everything about the new iPod touch, except: don't like stainless steel backing (scratches too easily..now I have to buy a case or Invis. shield!), Volume controls look extremely tiny (might be hard to find quickly), and it might be too thin? I thought the original was too thin and not very easy to hold, but I hope the curved back makes it easier to hold!

    All in all, I can't wait to buy this thing! They said available today...obviously not in stores, but hopefully will be in stores soon!

    Good - price drop
    Good - speakers
    Bad - no Bluetooth

    Let's see what 2.1 brings.
    Fingers crossed for copy and paste.

    I'm happy, now I can actually use it as a PDA for my alarms. I just hope they have some nice alarm sounds for calendar appts. External volume controls is also sweet. I hope we can use the new earbuds as well with the mic builtin for voice recording apps. If we can, it is going to be one powerful PDA device.

    How are you knowledgeable enough to post on this board but not knowledgeable enough to check the Buy Guide which says in big fraking letters Don't Buy, Update Soon? Did you think the I Rock theme wasn't going to include an update to the iTouch? Did you think they weren't going to update the iTouch after the updated the iPhone?

    Yes, you can probably return it easily as your Mom's friend has probably not opened the box.

    I hope they didn't mean the retarded MIDI speaker that was in the original iPod touch!
