    Its probably something so easy that I'm over looking, but how do you bring up the on screen keyboard to browse for songs? I've looked in the manual and browsed quickly on here and didn't find anything.

    I know it can be done, I saw it in the commercial. If you can't I'd would definitely call that false advertising.

    Thanks.

    Im not sure I fully understand your question.

    Do you mean when you touch the music icon, then touch the songs tab at the bottom of the screen?

    If so, I am pretty sure there is no way to access the onscreen keyboard.
    The vertical alphabet on the right side serves this purpose.

    I think I know what ad he is referring to.
    It is the newest ad, Music Is Where Id Like You to Touch.
    It is at the beginning.
    He is typing Kanye West.

    From what I cant tell, that is the iTunes Store, and they are using the search function.

    The new iPod touch ad with Music is My Hot Hot Sex. There's the video with the person searching through the music with the keyboard with a list of artists beginning with the letter K.

    Yep, that's what it looks like when you search in the iTunes Wi-Fi store. If you're just browsing music, you'll use the alphabet on the side to scroll. It would be nice however to have a search/spotlight function like iTunes.

    Besides the vertical alphabet bar as I said before, not really, no.
    I noticed this within the first week also.
