    Well, if you want, iPhone is already available in Singapore. Too Bad I using E90, and iPhone has no 3.5G. Else I would be using iPhone now.

    I dun get it, what are you guys going to use the itouch for?

    MP3? no right. watch video?

    Given a choice, I would rather wait for the cowon Q5. That is something worth waiting for.
    This is my opinion:
    For Singaporean, remember there were big rush to queue at Mac to get Hello kitty which is a pair of quite useless stuffs. After the mad rush is over, what do they do with the Hello Kitty? It is more of a Hype than reality.

    When IPOD video was announced, thinking that I can watch video on the move, rush to get it and at the end, it is only used as normal MP3. How many people are actually using the Video function of the IPOD Video? I rather have a Multi-media player where most of the movie can be directly copied into the unit instead of going through another conversion process just to watch once on the IPOD Video.

    For 8G Itouch, you can't put in much video, and 16G is too expensive and not worth.

    I had been given the choice of an iPod touch for my birthday and I decided to wait. It really is a nice product and given that my current iPod is 4 years old and doesn't display photos or video, it would have been so nice. However, the lack of storage (yes, it's smaller and lighter) at that price seems too much, especially since Apple have removed some functionality that would have made it a great PDA.

    Maybe, next June they'll have new models of iPhone and iPod touch that will be better priced because Flash memory will have dropped in price again.

    Firmware Update to 1.1.1 will solve this problem.

    Anyone can recommend a case?
    I'm not a fan of those socks/moshi pouches btw.

    What do you think of iTouch?
    have you tried to use it while you dig your nose?
    i can do it peacefully with my nano.

    seriously... it looked nice. but for the existing capacity and price... not really worth it lah. if it's priced reasonably... then maybe can consider.

    16gb is really stingy of apple. if you are into ripping loseless it wil be full in no time. then again i dont think it is targeted at audiophiles who rip at high rates.

    the classic 80gb is a good buy though. its thinner than the old 80gb which i got. yet the pricing is much better.

    well worth it

    The differences is there. However, think you may also need a good set of speakers / earpiece.

    heheh they are doing this I suspect to catch the gung ho early adopters who are willing to pay the high price to show off they can afford to buy it and wave around. Then a few month down the road, they drop the price suddenly....ala...like what they did with iPhone. heheh... Hopefully this time around their usual APple fan 'bois' will not give them hell again and then they start to give out silly $200 rebate coupon to those early adopter few to end up buying more stuff at their store.

    OIC... the main reason I use PDA is that I've got x51v, 4" vga, add TCPMP and I've an excellent video player, batt is about 3-4 hrs video onli tho, hav to switch off everything else and dim the screen to about 10%.

    There's a reason for it really.
    The Classic uses a hard disk, the iTouch uses flash. You won't want to shake the classic too much, the iTouch won't even notice it.

    There's also the difficulty.. ok near impossibilty of fitting a hard disk into the iTouch in the first place.

    A iTouch with say 40gb of flash would cost more than some computers. (for now..)

    Is there other player that has more than 16gb flash memory?

    I agree with all of you....yes, Ipods are overpriced devices...lack of features, poor batt life (and non-replaceable. even if it was, replacement is ex), poor SQ, stupid iTunes i/f, cannot be a USB device, cool design etc.....

    .....but then I bought a 16gb and it was fun watching Youtube, doing the Safari....., surfing was a breeze with absolutuely no lag time, great portability with no risk of damaging the hdd.

    My 30gb Archos 604 is now 'demoted' for home use
    My 8gb Zen is meant MP3 and the Touch primarily for surfing, photo albums and MP3 as backup.

    My only gripe is the %$#@$% sound quality as Creative/Meizu/iRiver/Cowon SQ totally pawnz the ipods....

    Design wise, ipods are more zen than Creative's.
