    If you need a new phone anyway, and you can afford the data plan that comes with smartphones, then there's no reason to get the touch -- the iPhone does everything a touch does, and more. Have no idea about the galaxy, try the "alternatives to iOS devices" subforum.

    They're both good phones and no one could tell you what would be better for you. Try them both and see what you think. Although if you are wanting an iPod anyway buying the iPhone would reduce the amount of gadgets to carry!

    Things to consider:

    How do you feel about having your phone and media player/games machine combined? Pro: only one gizmo to carry. Con: On a long trip, if you use up the battery playing music, videos and games, you could end up looking for a phone box in the rain.

    Do you need GPS? No built-in GPS in iPod as far as I know.

    Tempted at all by an iPad? An iPhone, iPad and iPod touch seems like carelessness.

    How much have you spent on iTunes/iBooks media or iOS Apps? Have you committed to iCloud or iTunes Match? Reasons for staying with Apple. Personally, I've stuck with MP3s and rips, use Google/Dropbox for cross-platform syncing, and Kindle (readers on everything) for books, so I've been ok with Macs, iPads + Android phone.
