    Anyone notice the brushed like metal look of the iPod touch side? I think I'd rather have this than the chrome on the iPhone. What do you guys think?

    you do realize that the entire back and most of the sides of the ipod touch are all chrome, right?

    You sure? From what I saw it looks like the back like the iPhone. Brushed.

    Neither one seems to have brushed metal or chrome on the back. I just looked at the gallery of each on the Apple web site. If that's chrome, it's the dullest, least shiny chrome I've ever seen.

    I think the OP is talking about the chrome border of the iPhone.

    The iPod touch do not have a "border", what you see is the light on the light bezel. The back of the iPhone touch is the regular iPod chrome.

    Why don't you just go to the Apple web site and look for yourself? ;)

    Problem is............looking at the Apple web site the touch's back looks ........well not chrome. Looking at the pictures on Engadget it is clearly chrome.

    I thought the back of the ipod touch was aluminum as well. I have always thought the all chrome backing on the ipods sucked, to easily scratched and tarnished. I was right on the edge of buying one, this just pushed me back.

    (wish they had an aluminum option.)

    I thought they said the back of the Touch was black aluminum?

    How I dislike these shiny chrome backs.

    When I saw that they brought back the chrome to the Nano I got quite disappointed. I just don't get it. It will smudge and scratch.

    In my opinion a very bad choice. But at least something to improve next year.

    Just check out engaget, the touch has a chrome back just like most ipods, but the trim on the front is clearly brushed.
