Just got my ipd touch on Thursday and I'm addicted to it (especially at work). I put some videos on it and I can't complain about the video quality. Surfing the web over wi-fi is a lot smoother than I thought. Overall i'm pretty happy with it. I hope Apple comes out with some PDA function apps for it down the road. I'm not sure if I want to hack my iphone with 3rd party apps in case they do an "update" and brick my ipod touch.

Hey that picture of the ipod next to a "mocha" is almost blasphemous.
It should be a TIMMY's in that picture!
Either way, great picture. Glad you're enjoying your ipod touch!

I guess I will join the "post from the touch" club. The keyboard is not hard to get used to. Nice having a portable web device, I just hope the "Newton 2" rumours are false.

No problems typing on it now, got used to it very quickly. The only thing I am not happy about is you cannot input calander dates right on the touch, you have to go through iCal.

While it's an amazing iPod, I still don't think it's a great tool for surfing the internet.

Great for the odd times you need to check on something when you're on the road, but for sustained use, the screen is still too small. Having to zoom up to read the text for every page is too bothersome. And because of the size, the on screen keyboard is rather difficult to type without errors.

An ultra portable or the rumoured Newton 2 would be more useful...albeit not something one could put into their pocket like the iPod Touch.

Hey satchmo,

That's like saying:

"While the MacBook is an amazing notebook, I still don't think it's a great portable player for listening to music on-the-go."

The touch is a portable music player... let's not forget its main purpose.

I'm not so sure about that. Sure it's roots are iPod based, but look where it's going. Videos, Televison shows, and movies and now the internet.
It may be marketed by name as an "iPod" but being able to play music is not it's key selling feature.

Hasn't iTunes always been the real killer feature of every iPod? That hasn't changed with the Touch.

For a PMP, the Touch's GUI is beatifully functional (and functionally beautiful), plus the web surfing is a fantastic bonus. But without its perfect integration with iTunes, the iPod Touch would just be another pretty face in the portable media player world.
