I purchased an ipod touch a few years back it was a 4th generation 32gb ipod touch. Got it for 275 dollars or so when it was pretty new. I liked it a lot and reason why i bought it was b/c i had a friend who had one and wanted another ipod... i had an ipod nano that i liked but the screen of the ipod touch made me want to get one. At that time, I didn't want to get an iphone b/c i already had a phone and thus didnt want to pay for another plan. However... back at that time... i had no idea you could use an iphone like an itouch b/c assuming you get an iphone and dont sign up for a plan... you can still listen to music and use wifi etc. But of course the iphone would cost more. However... the way i look at it now... isn't getting an iphone almost always better than an ipod touch? At the moment, i dont have an ipod touch anymore b/c it is broken now and want to get another one. The thing is isn't it better to get an iphone instead b/c you can always use it as a phone later on? What i dont get is this. If you check online right now on amazon... you could get a 4th generation 32gb ipod touch for around 210 dollars or so new. But you could also pay 226 dollars or so for an iphone 4 that is 8gb so basically same cost. I mean if you already have a cell phone plan such as an android or any other phone i can see you not needing the iphone. But for the same price roughly.. wouldnt it make sense to get the iphone 4 that is 8gb with virgin mobile than a 32gb ipod touch? Obviously there is a huge size difference with 32gb and 8gb but the ipod touch to me always felt pretty cheap and when you feel the iphone... it just feels like gold. So for me, should i get an iphone 4 instead of a ipod touch if its same price? I dont really understand why ppl bother getting an ipod touch. Yes an ipod touch can be just like an iphone if you have wifi so you could text and call ppl but again it isn't an iphone.
