    Would you? I know I wouldn't. But that's the iPhone 5. It has cellular capabilities, thicker than the iPhone 5, yet more expensive. I can't believe this. The iPhone 5 should be just around But it's somewhere in

    The prices are estimates, the iPhone's price varies by country. And I'm talking about the unlocked one.

    Why do you think that Apple would price a thicker iPod touch with Radio a price tag?

    The iPhone also has better cameras than the iPod Touch.

    The A5 was no slouch.

    ----------

    Both are 1080p, nearly same quality.

    Touch is 5 megapixels while the iPhone is 8. And the A6. And the radios. And GPS.

    Heck yes! I can't use the iPod Touch in the car... It isn't a phone... Most of the day I'm driving my kids around and I don't have wifi. The question for me is... Would you buy and iPod Touch? No... I have no use for it at all. It would be a paper weight for me.

    ...because phones cost more? It's not like competitors are much cheaper when they are released. And since iPhones only get 'outdated' once a year, unlike Android ones which are outclassed every month they can stay at a higher price longer.


    And on a side note, I vote OP the most angry threadstarter on MR. So much rage.
