What is the back of the new Touch like? Is it like the 3G? Or is it like the 1st gen iPod Touch? Or is it like the original iPhone? Thanks!

It's like the 3G and 1G iPhone.
It's metal like the 1G but it has the same design and look as the 3G.

And it's called case people. :rolleyes:

Are you sure it's like the 1st gen iPhone and not like the 1st gen Touch?

Black was the new scratchless.

It all comes around.

I like when stuff is old and roughed up, especially disposable electronics like these bits. They look like they were used and have a history. Just get used to it. You'll be ditching this thing in 3 years anyway. I'll be ditching mine in 2 most likely, unless the updates are limp in future.

No one seen or read anything about the keynote?Steve Jobs said it's some sort of steel,so the shape itself is similar to the iPhone 3G's,but it's not plastic nor aluminum like old iPt's or original iPhones
Steel is more resistant than Aluminum

Like that glossy back on the iPhone isn't a scratch magnet, eh?
It's not like the glossy back is highly likely to get scratches, in fact it seems less likely than the current and previous iPods and the older iPhone.
Even if it gets some scratches, the scratches are less visible on the glossy black than a metal silver back.

The back of it is exactly like my 5.5 gen iPod. It has a bunch of smudges already, but I have always loved how the metal felt in my hands.

Yeah I only had a nano, but the shiny metal back felt nice and solid. It was a very good mirror too! After 2 years it has a few scratches and marks, but it's pretty good still.

I still don't understand why durable scratch-prone metal is considered worse than cheap-feeling crack-prone plastic.

Because anything shiny makes something new look old very fast.

Funny how Apple keeps saying they listen to customers and is the reason the new Touch has outside volume controls and a speaker, yet they don't seem to listen about this. Apple listen up, we want your products to not show scratches so easily! Drop the shiny backs.
