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!
