    Hey guys, just wondering how likely it would be for people to port google maps and Mail from the iPhone to the new iPod touch?
    This would be a pretty killer move.

    cheers.

    google maps would be pointless because your not going to have wifi while your driving down the road.

    mail maybe.

    Should work, same hardware and operating system. We'll see...

    First it needs to be jailbroken. ;)

    iPod touch also needs Notes too, what an oversight to not include notes in the touch.

    They use the same OS, so yes, it should be possible on a (as mentioned above) jailbroken iPod Touch.

    I guess this would be good for those not wanting to shell out for an iPhone and service from AT&T. Had I had a choice between the iPhone and Touch when the iPhone came out, I still would have gone for the iPhone. I need the EDGE connection no matter how slow. I'm out a bunch of the time, and WiFi is hard to get a hold of ... unless you are at home or in the office.

    As for Google Maps, you can still visit the webpage. And same for email.

    I know!! I'm seriously not going to buy it for this reason alone. I use the notes feature on my iPod Nano all the time for things like to do lists, grocery list, directions and so on.

    I'm hoping it won't be too long till the ipod gets hacked and apps will be able to be installed on it.
