I just made a bank transfer and am ready to purchase one after intense waiting for Steve to give me something to buy it. I am not really interested in jailbreaking it because I am worried about the warrenties and messing something up and losing my music, etc. etc...so I have a few questions, and hopefully someone can answer: -- Does the "GPS" thing in Google Maps work if you are not connected to the wi-fi hotspot itself? i.e. does it require connection or can it just sense the spot being there and triangulate that way? -- If you had to give a ballpark guess as to the battery life if you mainly listen to music but use the wi-fi on a college campus (where it is everywhere). I don't watch that much video. -- Is the calendar similar looking to iCal and in full color and easy to look at? Or it like the ipod classics/ipod 5th? Screenshot? -- Is it possible to use some sort of substitute for iChat legally? Does www.meebo.com work? Is this possible in the upcoming SDK? -- When Apple releases an update like this, what is the likely hood that stores like Wal-Mart already have the new 1.1.3 touch in box?
