    Hi everyone,

    I currently own a second generation ipod Nano. Its 2gb has been full for a while and I'm ready to upgrade.

    I'm stuck between the new 8gb iPod Nano vs the 3G iPod Touch (8gb as well).

    I like the small size of the Nano and its FM radio (which will get a lot of use in the gym). I like the wifi & the app store with the Touch.

    My primary uses have been listening to music in the car (almost daily), and occasional jogging/gym use (a couple times a month).

    Any advice is appreciated.

    I too had an ipod touch, and i went out and got the iPod Nano 5G.

    two words: AMAZING!!!!!!!!

    lol, i mean seriously its cheaper, and for what you doing its PERFECT!!! I LOVE the camera, the Radio ROCKS!!!!!!!! i mean, the ipod touch is great for gaming, and i miss it a bit, but the ipod nano is cheaper, smaller, and just cooler, they really outdid themselves this time on the nano. GET IT

    Well, think a bit more.
    Will you ever be sitting anywhere, and just want to play an interactive touch game, or can you setting for using the click wheel + accelerometer? Do you mind extra bulk? Do you go anywhere that people would want to steal your stuff?

    If you only use it for exercising and listening to music while you're driving, the go for the Nano. Small, portable, and colourful. But if you may have more usages (PDA-type thing) you may want to consider the Touch.

    I think you get more bang for your buck with the Touch'es since you can do a lot more with it.

    Touch. Get a refurbished 8 GB Touch if you want. Way more functionality, way more use, far better, far more advanced. Touch hands down.
