I'm honestly thinking about getting an iPod Touch (4th Generation - 32 GB)

Do any of you have an iPod Touch? What do you think of it?

x Pros....cons....comments....
Your comments may or may not influence my decision as to whether I'm going to buy one.


Reasons I would like an iPod Touch:
- I love, love, love apps! (that's what I miss about having a smartphone)
- I love the sleek design
- Similar to the iPhone (which is cool)
- Resolution looks amazing
- Small, compact size (unlike the iPad)

It's a good device, and offers a huge selection of apps and plenty of space for videos/music. The only problem is if you've had an Android device previously, which I think you have. A lot of people that go from Android to iOS have unpleasant experiences. You realize how limited you are as far as what the device allows you to do. Another feature you will lack is the ability to increase/decrease storage via sdcard and you won't be able to replace the battery. It is however very slim and stylish, with top of the line quality.

Personally, I wanted a lot more hard drive than the ipod touches have (or had, a year and a half ago). I decided just to go with an android smartphone, and a standalone mp3 play... in my case a 120 gb zune. Only used 50 gb of it though, guess the 80 gb would've been enough.

I also distrust Apple more than any other company and would rather give anyone else my business.

Here, here! I hate the way Apple conducts their business and employs its marketing tactics.

You're not???? haha it's basically making fun of people who want ipods, ipads, iphones so bad that they don't care to even check to see what devices out there have to offer. they just want it because its an "I" something, and everyone else has one.

I suggest going to Wal-Mart and playing around with one to see if you enjoy it. :]

I'm buying an iPhone 4G or waiting till next one comes out this summer. I hate my Droid; I always end up having problems with calls, and *bleep* automatically force closing on me.

Ohh. Gotchya. It's not because it's an Apple product. I don't know of anything else that isn't a smartphone that has apps and stuff. *shrugs* it's the first thing that came to mind

The iPhone 4 is garbage. If you're dead set on an iPhone, definitely wait until the next model. I assume you have AT&T. I recommend looking up the Atrix 4G. Itís supposed to be coming out around valentines day. First dual core phone on a US provider.

I have an iPod touch. Volume broke in a about 1.5 years. I was hoping for a $230 it would work longer. I have friends with the Zune and they work much, much better.

If Zunes had the apps that Apple has, I would have no need for an Ipod.
