    Regarding capability, is it true to say that the iTouch can do everything that an iPhone can do apart from sending and receiving phone calls.

    If this is not true, what are the other significant differences btw the two machines?

    Thanks

    iPod Touch lacks a camera. The iPhone has a GPS chip and the new 3GS also can record video. etc.

    The GPS is another feature on the iPhone that isn't on the touch. But the touch has Nike+ which the phone didn't have until the 3GS. And the magnetometer in the 3GS isn't on the touch either. The touch generally can support twice as much memory at the top end than the phone.

    And don't forget the itouch(2nd gen) actually has a faster processor than the iphone.

    Except for the new iPhone 3GS of course.

    The iPhone 3GS is the fastest device running iPhone OS, fastest processor, most RAM, best GPU. It also has GPS, SMS, MMS, a compass, a 3mp camera with video record. And of course phone calls, 3G Internet and visual voicemail.
