I do very little phone calling and even less texting (actually almost none). If I'm interested in using the internet, reading and sending emails, playing games, using location maps and being able to do this in both Europe and in America, is it better to get an ipod touch and a cheap pay as you go phone or get an iphone on a pay as you go option? I would like the ability to have good, reliable connections to the internet and map locator and email rather than a more limited capability. Does the ipod touch offer these services for free or does it also include charging for them? Are there any other phones that offer the same touch features as the iphone and ipod touch? I really like how those work with the finger pinches and swipes, etc. Do the ipod touch and iphone have exactly the same touch features or does one have more touch features than the other?
