    the 16 ipod touch is spectaular, let me tell why your £215 will be well spent:-
    1. the facilities are endless, store so much music, download films, aplications and games (free), facebook, wireless internet, you tube, store contacts, clock calender calculator maps and moree.
    If thats not enough then the storage space 16gb is massive, get a 3gp convertor and convert to blackberry format, then you can put videos on the free of charge.
    So slim and sleek, touch and motion sensitive, typing is also so easy you wont get words wrong even if you have big hands like me *).
    Just buy yourself some quality in ear headphones and a leather case to protect the ipod. Also you can get the back ENGRAVED, valentines just around the corner so go your girlfriend deserves it. A Must buy for music and gadget lovers

     absolutely amazing!

    knew i could expect this product to be fantastic but it was even better than i thought, excellent wireless fast web browsing, quality sound and videos. one of the best features is the APPs u can download, loads are free and it includes facebook, games, even things like driving theory tests, u can find something for everyone.
    i would reccomend getting 16GB or more as all the add ons take memory, its worth the bit extra. a must buy!

     Great peice of kit

    Got one of these for Christmas and got to say I am extremely impressed with it.

    Firstly the ease of using the interface. It is clear and user friendly and allows you to navigate round the iPod without any hassle or inconvenience.

    The touch screen itself is great very sensitive although would suggest getting a stylus for it as typing can be a bit of a nightmare when you're just using your fingers.

    The IPod its self has a built in speaker which is cool for when you want to play a little background noise i.e. revision or working from home.

    The iPod itself can connect to the internet through a wireless router which is in my eyes what makes this such a great little device. The amount of applications you can download with the click of a button not to mention surfing the net on it this really is very versatile and in my eyes useful.

    This really is a great all in one piece of kit and would happily give it a 10/10 rating!!!

    Games great, great choice. Video great. Maps and Tintenet 'mazing. Looks great. There's only two things i don't understand about it how do they make it so great and how can they fit that much in something that small. Amazing and Great. If you want and Ipod/MP3 get this a bit more than others but 1000000 times better. its sick.
