my friend has one, and i must admit, the new firmware is fun to use, and though it does take a little getting used to its is great.

be ready for the brick like size on the originals though, they dont exactly fit in a pocket very well Razz

The old "brick" models have been selling at some stores for $79 refurbished. I wouldn't sink any more than that into one. But the iPod touch comes in 16GB and at least has wi-fi.

When my 30 GB 5G dies...hopefully they will be up to a 30GB iTouch with wi-fi and VoIP capability. Fairytales can come true..... LOL

The competition's just heated up now that Creative have dropped the price of their 8GB Zen to the same as a 4GB Nano. More info here.
