Hi, Since new models are (possibly) coming out soon, all the iPods at my local computer store have been heavily discounted so ... I bought my first iPod touch on a lark (because I don't really need one), for about a hundred bucks off the sticker price. While it's an excellent iPod - perhaps the best I have ever used - and getting email on it is very cool as well, I am surprised at how awful the web experience is on it so far. It's almost like a dirty secret that you don't find out until you actually get one and try to use it. The pages load very, very, slowly even though it's on the same network as my other computer sitting on the same desktop. I know the desktop has more power, but the limiting factor in terms of speed, for loading a web page is hardly processing power. Once you do get them loaded, by far the majority of web pages are completely unreadable tiny blurs at first glance. Sure you can zoom in, but then you are paging around some ugly website looking at things through the "moving keyhole." Granted, the last time I tried the mobile web (on an iPAQ), it was similarly awful and had the similar feel of looking at things through a tiny hole in a fence, but I was shocked to find the iPod not much better even though many years have passed since the iPAQ. It seems ironic to me that the main selling feature of the iPhone and the iPod Touch is the mobile internet, yet it really sucks quite badly for most uses. Internet enabled Widgets like the Stock app, and the Weather app, and any web application made specifically for iPhone/iPod touch are far more useable. I'd be interested to know how others find the mobile iPhone/iPod web experience. Of course it's *better* than all the other mobiles out there, but that's not a high bar is it? Do people really find the web useful on these things? (and by that I mean the web itself, not "web apps.") .
