    4S. It's a phone, has a mic, a better camera, and probably more RAM than the touch. It also has GPS, optional data plan ($45/month prepaid), your choice of google maps or apple maps (if you update it).

    An iphone 4s is simply so much better than an ipod touch. However if you're not going to use it as a phone, well, an ipod touch may be good enough.

    4S if you want to use it as a phone. iPod touch if not.

    If you care about iOS 7- iPod touch 5G
    If you care about everything else- iPhone 4S

    It has the same amount of RAM as the touch.

    4S inky because the accessibility of a 3G connection when there is no wifi around is handy ;)

    No brainier here. Its a choice between a phone and a mp3 player. Which one do you need most, keeping in mind the phone will do everything the iPod does.

    I didn't think we knew anything about the amount of RAM in the new iPod touch. Source?

    Get the iPhone 4S, it has better camera, better design and if you one day need a phone, you have one. Only reason to get the iPod touch is if you want the larger screen. The iPhone 4S will support IOS 7, there's no reason why not, even the 3GS is getting the IOS 6 this week.

    As someone who has a 3G iPad and a standard phone with him all day long, let me highly recommend you get the 4S. Carrying around more than one device is not convenient at all. Getting an all-in-one is much preferred.

    Used 4s. If you opt for an iPod touch, you'll have two gadgets on your pocket which I think is bulky.
