    I am not so much interested in the MP3 part of the iPod Touch, nor am I interested in the Voice part of the iPhone. So which should i get ? Should i still wait a little ?

    All I want is full internet (Wifi + 3G/3G+), access to all sorts of applications (Java, .NET ?) regardless jail-breaking the device or not, for the (too) rare moments i'm not already in front of a computer.

    Secondly, can either be used as a 3G modem/router to connect a PC?

    Please point me to any informative site if the answer is not so obvious.

    Thanks in advance,

    The Touch doesn't do 3G, or any other form of web connection besides WiFi. It doesn't have any way (or need) to share it's WiFi internet connection as your laptop could use the same WiFi.

    You'll need the iPhone. And tethering will be restricted by the carrier. You may have it one day and lose it the next.
