You walk into a Starbucks. Order your latte. While you wait, you hear a song wafting from the loudspeakers. You love it. So you get out your iPod touch and buy it over Wi-Fi. Just like that. The iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store on iPod touch tells you what's playing in select Starbucks and lets you buy it along with other featured Starbucks content. So you can sip, shop, and listen.

Using some local Wi-Fi networks (if Wi-Fi is turned on), iPod touch finds your approximate location and gives directions from there. Mark specific locations, find the best route between them, and search for points of interest along the way. With a hybrid map and satellite view, you can see major street names on top of satellite images.

Widgets
Widgets are small, incredibly handy applications you can use every day. Three of the most useful widgets now live front and center on your Home screen:


Weather
Get a five-day weather forecast, including highs and lows, for cities around the world. Save your favorite locations so you can check the weather anytime.

Notes
Take notes, make a to-do list, or jot down a reminder using the easy-to-use touch keypad. Then save or email them.

Stocks
Check your stocks and track the market over one day, one week, one month, three months, six months, one year, or two years.

High Technology
iPod touch features the same revolutionary interface as iPhone, the most advanced software ever engineered, and state-of-the-art technology. With the multi-touch display, you can control everything using only your fingers. If you rotate your iPod touch from portrait to landscape, the accelerometer automatically changes the way the content is displayed. And with wireless technology, you can connect to the Internet from any Wi-Fi network, anywhere you are.

Multi-touch
iPod touch features the same revolutionary interface as iPhone. Built to take full advantage of the large 3.5-inch display, the multi-touch interface lets you control everything using only your fingers. So you can glide through albums with Cover Flow, flick through photos and enlarge them with a pinch, or zoom in and out on a section of a web page. And iPod touch features a touchscreen QWERTY keyboard perfect for browsing the web in Safari, getting directions on a map, searching for videos on YouTube, finding music on the iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store, or adding new contacts.

Ambient Light Sensor
The iPod touch display has an ambient light sensor that automatically adjusts brightness to suit the ambient light in your surroundings. The result? A better experience for you and battery-saving efficiency for iPod touch.

Wireless
Connect to the Internet anywhere there's a Wi-Fi network. Send email from a coffee shop. Surf the web at the airport. Browse, buy, and download music from the iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store at select Starbucks locations or other wireless hot spots in your area. iPod touch finds wireless networks and connects you to the Internet.

Accelerometer
An accelerometer detects when you rotate iPod touch from portrait to landscape, then automatically changes the contents of the display, so you immediately see the entire width of a web page, your music in Cover Flow, or a photo in its proper aspect ratio.

To start, the back of the ipod gets to hot and burns my skin so I have to put the ipod on the pillow.

For those who may be interested in acquiring an iPod Touch as a replacement for a PDA, I have found it to be quite useful. The primary function used in this regard is syncing with Microsoft Outlook, which works flawlessly. Now I can check appointments and find those phone numbers for early morning conference calls without waiting 10 minutes for my laptop to boot up.

The new software improves the functionality by adding the notes capability, and I even find myself frequently viewing video podcasts - something I never thought I would use.

The most important functions for me in a portable device are calendar, music, notes, photos, and Audible book playback, all of which this iPod handles very nicely. I have also used the maps feature for driving directions - load it up while on the home WiFi network, then the directions are retained for reference - in a much more useful format than if you print out the directions on Google. Just bring along a navigator, as I would not recommend trying to read the iPod while driving. The same applies to paper maps, of course.

On the downside, the battery life has not been great - less than two hours if actively using WiFi.

First off, I ordered this on a Monday and it came on Wednesday....using free shipping. Wow! Thanks amazon.

Now onto the product....simple, sleek, amazing. Set up out of the box could not have been easier. Make sure you have the most updated version of itunes onyour computer, plug in the USB cord and you're up and running. Give it a full 3-4 hour charge first time through. Load up your music, pictures, videos. The software is simplicty defined. If you can use a toaster over, you can use this device. The wi-fi immediatley found my home network (and my neighbor's). Setting up email: simple. Surfing the web: simple. And, oh yeah, using it to listen to music (ostensibly what it is for): a lifting and beautiful experience.

Might as well buy this newer version with the new software loaded. With amazon's discount, it only a few dollars more than the old version without the upgrade after you pay for it and upload it youself. Save yourself the hassle and get the new version.

So you know, this thing will get fingerprinted fast. I got a Griffin leather hard shell case with a protective screen cover for about $20.00. A bit pricey but worth it to protect your investment.

I went with the 8 gig verion for a few reasons and it's more than enough space. I am a music nut...I loaded it with more music that I can digest in two weeks and there's still 3 gigs free. Sure I'll eventually fill it (I guess...) but I really don't mind swapping music out for fresh music thereby making my ipod new and fresh again. I also thought if I somehow lose the thing, I'd be out a lot more money with the 16 or 32 gig version. But honestly, it's more than enough space for me.

The one caveat I discovered the hard way: shut off the wi-fi connection when you're not using it.

Verified Purchase
You will not regret buying the Touch with the software update - I am very, very happy with mine. Bright screen, world-class fit and finish, pretty good battery life and tons of functionality. Your photos will look great, Gmail is easy, and I have already downloaded a lot of map coverage (which cannot be "synced" onto the Touch as far as I can tell - you have to connect the Touch to the internet thru your wireless). I connected it to my laptop and all of my old iPod Nano music synced onto the Touch in a matter of minutes. Music, photos, e-mail, notes for (eg) a journal plus stocks and weather - the software update Touch has a lot to offer. OK - I do have one complaint and one suggestion - I wish they would have made the backside matte-finished instead of polished - it is really a finger-print magnet. And, I would prefer it to be just a little bigger to make some things (like maps) easier to read. Kudos to J&R Music and Computer too - I ordered this from Amazon but J&R sold and shipped it - it was in Iraq eight days after I placed the order!!
Edited on 03/03/2008 to add: The Touch continues to impress me. You can't really "save" maps on it - but if you place a bookmark at a location then that area and map scale is preserved to use when you are not on-line. G-mail continues to work like a charm. The Touch has easily replaced my old PDA and offers much more functionality.

I've had this for a week - it's very fun and easy to use. My primary plan is for this to be my MP3 player to listen to podcasts. 8 GB is plenty for me to hold all my music and queue of podcasts, plus some photos and PDA data.

However, there is one design oversight that drives me crazy about it - the lack of a play/pause button and volume up/down buttons. With any other MP3 player, if I need to quickly pause, or to adjust the volume, I could just slip my hand in the pocket holding the player, and easily find the button.

On the Touch, you have to first turn on the screen, then look to see where the button you need is, then touch it. This is a MAJOR pain for an MP3 player. This product desperately needs three hardkeys on the side: play/pause, vol up, and vol down. If it had that, I would rate it five stars. But not having those really detracts from my enjoyment of it.

I'm thinking I might have been happier with the Nano.
