    And kudos to the rumor mill for being spot on this year. This Touch is a dream come true!

    You have to admit that it was pretty predictable. They didn't introduce anything groundbreaking.

    Nothing so great to make me replace my 64GB Touch. When it breaks, if they haven't released the iPhone 4 for T-Mobile, sure.

    What else could they have done? You want it to turn into a jet pack and fly you to the moon or something?

    have to agree. Tempted to ditch my iphone 3gs for this baby. The thinness, speed, retina display, front camera and flat back.

    It has the same speed, display, and front camera. That isn't 99%.

    The camera is of a lower quality than the one in the iPhone 4.

    It's good but predictable. They could have made something magical and backed off. they hit it up to the fence but it should have gone over.

    I would have loved 3G, the same camera, and the same design as iPhone 4, but I still bought a 32GB model.

    From all the speculation, this is as about as good as we could have expected for the 4G iPod Touch. I am satisfied with the new features and am looking forward to purchasing my iPod Touch, very soon.

    There is no way Apple is going to put 3G into the iPod Touch. There would be little difference between it and the iPhone.

    If they had taken the phone part out of the IP4 and released it as the new 4G Ipod touch, now THAT would have been a grand slam. I grade this as a triple, MAYBE a one run home run.

    A recent study released showed that the owners of smart phones used them a lot for data and not so much for making calls.

    I'm impressed for the most part, but believe there is still plenty of room for improvement. Mainly that iOS could use a rethink. Still having to leave an app to go into Settings for related options is archaic.

    Wow. If the aliens land tomorrow and read this thread, their conclusion will be that, except for one guy, everyone hates the abomination that is the iPod Touch. Wait - make it two guys. I think it's a grand slam, too.

    I couldn't agree more. Still waiting for jailbreak just to get SBSettings. (and Bluetooth tethering)

    I'm really impressed with the iPod touch, a huge improvement, but I wonder why they didn't put GPS.

    GPS minus 3G is of limited use at best. You'd have to buy one of the offline mapping/direction packages to make use of it when you'd really need it.
