I'm planning to get a 16gb iPod Touch as soon as my local stores start carrying it. Very few options of where I can get it, really only one that will be on top of it, so I may end up ordering from Apple, but haven't decided.... Anyway. My friend was waiting to get an iPod touch until he seen what they were going to do today. He was hoping to get some nice new features, but most importantly wanted the price drop (He doesn't really have the money to spend on an iPod touch, but is determined to get it) So, anyhow, my main question here is would he be better off getting the newer version and getting the additional features, or saving the money and getting the first gen. The only feature he is really interested in right now is the speaker, mainly to use the iPod as an alarm clock, etc. The other features are okay, but nothing he has to have... Also, he should still be able to get a $30 iTunes giftcard from Wal-Mart on the older one. So according to Amazons new prices that would be about $60 savings off the price. He asked me for my opinion and I have no clue, so I told him I would check wtih the pros Thanks for any help!
