I haven't purchased a personal media player yet but, I am seriously thinking about doing so. It seems like it would be perfect for me since I travel almost constantly. Being able to send emails via Wi-Fi, use Skype from my hotel rooms, and things like that would be fantastic. I would also be able to listen to music I enjoy, read books, and watch movies. I do not want a cell phone. I like what I read about the iPod touch but, some fellow travellers have told me that an iPod touch might not be the right product for me. They say that, not having access to a regular computer (I typically use computers at internet cafes), it will probably be very difficult to work within the Apple system of doing things. They say that Apple wants it's iPod touch customers to have access to a regular computer. These people also say that i-tunes is not loaded on many computers in internet cafes and, even if it were, Apple might claim it is not my computer. They suggested I consider buying a different brand of personal media player which might be more comfortable with me sharing files from friends, downloading music from the internet, and things like that. Even if the iPod touch is the best personal media player, which it sounds like it is, if anyone has any suggestions, considering my travel lifestyle situation, about a different brand and model they would suggest might be more convenient for me, I would appreciate the advice.
