Easiest wa to put it,- if you got an ipod touch they're more or less the same when it comes to playing games and usage of the device! of course without phone functions, but when it comes to apps theres so many cool ones about that use functions not availible on the touch e.g. apps that use the camera or mic, though the touch does have a mic built into the headphones, if you want to decrease the amount you carry around the iphone is for you, you'll have internet, ipod, camera/video camera, sat nav, phone, organizer, games console (some of the games graphics are awesome - better than DS/psp.) downside - cant seem to send or receive photos through bluetooth to/from other make phones! but seriously thats it! BUY ONE!
