First of all i wanted one of these as i wanted a portable music player and something that isn't bulky and that i can have fun on it. The ipod touch does just that. As this is the newer 3G model it has all of the latest apps (applications), games, etc...

This is probably the cheapest price you will find. i bought it on a Saturday, it arrived the following wednesday, which was within the time it said it would come, so i was pleased with that.

Now as im writing this im listining to one of my 1200 songs. With alot more room for me too find songs for. Now as soon as i got the ipod the first thing i did was connect to the internet, now when i do this with my lap top it picks up about 2 wireless internet connections, but with the ipod i picked up about 4. Plus you can go on these connections for free.

I then went to the appstore where there are hundreds of thousands of apps. varying from an airoplane tracker to a currency converter and from a bank statement to checking the weather, all free. But the best ones cost only 59p. Nearly every app is free but some are from 20p to 10 pound. Like 10 pound for a sat-nav app.

As soon as you get it, it already comes with apps, e.g. an e-mail checker for yahoo/ Gmail/ail/msn ... plus, an app for the weather, youtub, stocks and more.

Over all im really happy especially with the fact on long journeys i can watch and hold up to 20 hours of video, so yes a superb purchase, recommend this too anyone as it comes with really good instructions.

thanks for reading, hope you buy one and enjoy it!

For almost a year now I have lived with and used my iPod touch quite happily under the false impression that, as advertised, it was a 3rd generation. It is, however, only a 2nd generation ipod touch, as it cannot use features such as iOS 4 multitasking. If you are looking for an ipod touch which can multitask, and do other 3rd generation things, do not get this! Get a 32gb or a 64gb, they are 3rd generations. I am not discouraging you to buy an iPod touch, because they are fantastic, just pointing out that, if you want something that runs the latest operating systems properly, don't get this. Being honest, you will find that if you splash out on a 4th generation, your money wont be wasted, because they come with plenty of exciting new features. This product is false advertised and I am not happy that this is only a 2nd generation iPod.

I am writing this review with the 8gb iPod Touch. Needless to say the internet browsing is excellent. This site works just as your pc. It also has google earth! As long as you have WiFi at home.
I cannot understand why anyone would choose the iPod Nano over this.
iTunes is a bit fiddly at first but you soon get used to it.

8gb is enough if you have about 150 albums with space left over for apps. The processor is very good with apps running perfectly fine, google earth is just as quick as my laptop. I don't think the 32 or 64gb versions would be worth the money.

The unit itself is very neat and slim, and the battery life is actually quite good.

I thouroughly recommend this iPod.

My iPod touch arrived a few days after I ordered it within the time us suggested. The day I got it I charged it and put over 300 songs on it. Unfortunately my internet wasn't working that day so I couldn't get any apps but when it was fixed i got loads! People say 8gb isn't enough I think it is plenty I have enough room for music apps pictures and loads more. I really like my Itouch and it is especially worth it if you have wireless. So far I haven't brought any apps just downloaded the free ones and love them. I only have one problem with the itouch and that apart from the pc you sync your iPod with you can't plug it in anywhere else, I found this when I was away for the weekend and plugged it into my laptop to charge it as I couldn't plug it into my main computer where I originally synced it. This meant none of my apps worked. After I found this out I reset my iPod and started over. After I brought a plug for the mains that I used to charge it now! But dont let this off put you it is totally worth it. I really recommend it to everyone!!

this ipod is the best ever i bought this last year for my birthday and what a ipod its been.....sound quailty very good through any earphones touch screen very easy to use apart from when your using safari. the only annoying this about this product is the chrome finishing of the back which gets very scratched very easily but once you get one or two you dont seem to bother.. games on the ipod are good some fit the ipod very well and other dont i.e fifa. dont but this product if you want a handheld console get a psp for that but for music player this has got to be the best one....
