anyone else agree?? when i am holding it browsing the web or something it just doesn't feel right. sometimes it has slipped because of how thin it is and slipped into the gap in the couch. i just feel if it was a bit thicker it would nicely fit in the hand. however, i do love the thiness of it when comparing to other iPod's and when it is in my pocket.

the touch is a bit thing for me as well.. It has fallen out of my hand and onto the bathroom floor precisely because of this.

Me too!

I thought that I'd never want to cover up my Touch, but after a few near-misses, I had to go for a leather case. It's just too thin and slick for me to be comfortable hand-holding. I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one.

I think it's perfect. I previously owned the world's largest mp3 player (it was like four years old), so I am very grateful to have a thin media player.

Right behind you
After comparing my Touch to an iPhone at the Apple store, nothing can change my mind that the Touch is better. The iPhone feels like a brick compared to the thinness (is that a word?) of the iPod Touch.

Actually the new Zunes are iPod Nano sized..
...and still suck balls.

You can never be too thin...well, maybe you can, but the touch slips right into my pocket. It is really nice. The iPhone looks like a brick next to it!

Have you ever used one? I don't think people should make judgments unless they have.. anyway staying on topic, I have an iPhone, but I personally like the bigger size.

I think the touch is a more svelte and beautiful device, but for the purposes of usability I think the chunkier iPhone is probably a bit better.

"Eat, eat, you're skin and bones," I tell my iPod touch daily. She doesn't listen, though. She's got a complex for which we're seeking help.

I think it's perfect. Especially since I'm coming from a 5G 60GB

my old roomate owned one i borrowed for a week after breaking my 4th gen iPod. It SUCKED. Mind you and I know this is suicide on this site, but I am a Windows user so don't think I'm just a fanboy.

Can it really be 'too' thin?

Then again, I've never experienced any of the problems you seem to have, perhaps it's cause I've got tiny little girl hands

Just a general advice:

iPods and bathrooms (read: water) don't go well together... :eek:

Don't people bring magazines with them to the bathroom anymore? :rolleyes:
