I've had this itouch since xmas and here's the pros and cons i've noticed:
Screen - Fantastic, brilliant, supberb, etc! 5*
Music - Scrolling between artists is a great idea and it has every option/mode you need and more. 5*
Video - Brilliant! Screen size is very good and looks just like windows media player. But i've got some syncing issues with my movies. 4*
Safari - In a place with wireless internet it's great, looks just like it does on the pc! Not the fastest internet in the world but its fast enough for something you can hold in yr hand. 4*
Itunes - Needs wireless internet access, i haven't needed to use it yet, but i'm sure it's good.
Space - 16gb is a comfortable amount of space to have. I've put all my music on, a whole tv series, 3 movies and i still have 8gb left! 5*
Battery life - music will last about 6/7 hours, videos about 2 hours. Mixing it up i watched 2/3 episodes of scrubs and 3 hours of music and i have almost no battery left. Saying that, you do get used to the battery running out so it's always on charge in my 'Logitech Pure-Fi Anywhere' docking station when i get home (which is EXCELLENT!). 3*
Safari - Only works in an area with accessable wireless internet. So trying to book cinema tickets whilst walking down the highstreet or in car on way to cinema is impossible. 3*
Size - very thin... without being contradictive, i love the size of it; it's not a great big brick, infact it's very sleek and elegant. However, i just can't get a good enough grip on it to use single handed. That said, with a case around it for extra grip and thickness it becomes much easier to hold and you can easily navigate the touch screen in one hand. 4*
Itunes Itunes Itunes Itunes!!!! NOT COMPATABLE WITH WINDOWS XP64!!!!!!!! I have searched the internet for almost 9/10 hours trying to find an alternative itunes to no success. The itouch does not even register on My Computer; it doesn't sync or anything. To get music onto it i've had to copy all my music/videos/pictures onto my brother's XP 32bit pc and use his itunes - PAIN IN THE ****!! 0* - Apple, get you're act together and support your customers!
In conclusion, the itouch is a brilliant mp3/mp4 player with wi-fi. It also happens to look the coolest out of the competition. Much bigger screen than creative's device. Not the cheapest, but if you're the sort of person who likes to buying the best, new, popular electronics then this is for you. Oh...and if you only have 1 computer in your house and it's got a 64bit windows...don't purchase this ipod!
