    Does anyone think the old mockups of a widescreen iPod look better than the actual touch?

    Why wouldn't they? They're unconstrained by any connection to reality. :p

    One thing that surprises me, though... I thought I would really miss the wheel, and I scarcely even think about it. I have a couple older iPods -- a 2G nano and an iPod video... and now I find the wheel really cumbersome vs. navigation in the iPod/iPhone interface.

    I miss the wheel in music.... and my wheel doesn't work well on my Video! LOL!! (well, really it's the button that doesn't work).

    I don't like that. I prefer the wheel (or a real, Classic-style one since I keep my iPod in my pocket) but not on a touchscreen thing. That would just be horrible to use.
    Dont like the bezel either.

    You should maybe post more than one example :p

    The problem with the mockups is people almost always stuck a wheel on them. Way to think outside the box :rolleyes: Saying that though the physical wheel > current touch interface (for me anyway)

    I don't think an image of a wheel is what's needed, but the interface does need rethought on the touch iPods.

    Maybe its not fair for me to say since I don't actually have an iPod Touch, but I've used quite a few of them, and I prefer the touch interface. The only time I like the wheel is when I'm changing the volume, or seeking to a specific point in a song/movie (because I have big hands). Again, I don't have one, so it might not be fair to judge, but that's my two cents.
