the iPod Touch just really became the phoneless iPhone. OK, gotta plonk down another $20 for the software, but that's the price of early adoption it would seem ;-)

The notes feature alone is worth the extra money!:)

The one thing I think the iPhone has over the iPod Touch is the connectivity. The iPhone probably has connectivity via 3/Telstra, while the iPod Touch relies on local wLAN. Thus, for the iPod Touch, you can only really rely on connectivity in places where you control the connectivity, eg. home or the office.

You don't have that desirable kind of always-on connectivity, out and about.

Hi Kat,

I think that free ubiquitous wifi is a couple of years off most places.

I agree for now, a mobile data connection would make it perfect, but, it's getting there!

John so you did not jailbreak you ipod touch in the first couple of weeks like everybody else? My ipod touch can do more than what is being offered by Apple due to the hard work of a lot of individuals.

Personally I think free ubiquitous wifi is still a long way off outside the US. Data via 3G is likely to be the way in Oz (and most other places) for the next few years.

Now just to get my phone to share it's connection over wifi with the ipod touch, so I can use the lovely UI. (Have the software just need to set it up).

And no I don't want an iPhone till it has 3G, bluetooth, GPS and can add 3rd party apps.

I'm planning on getting one when I get back to Australia, but I notice that the maps application only works when you're in wifi range. So, you can just want look up a map even if you don't want to find your current location.

Stil, I assume someone has already figured this out!

So if you want bass and nothing else, just go for Bose. There are definitely better alternatives out there on the market and I really recommend you look at them. The only genre in which I think they suit is electronic and nothing else.
