Yeah, it looks like a bigger, more powerful itouch. Still kind of neat i guess, definitely the next logical progression up, but nothing revolutionary.

I don't know why they're patting themselves on the back for that price though, it still seems ridiculously high. And what's all the fuss over the e-books? I thought the very reason the kindle was so great was because it was designed without a backlight, meaning it didn't fatigue your eyes like staring at a computer screen would... allowing you to read it like a regular book.

Eh. I might buy one in a year or two. I'm not jumping on it.

I'll look more at this once the initial fervor dies down and Apple drops the price like they did with the iPhone.

If this fucking website would stop refreshing and bringing me to the top every 2 minutes, I'd be able to get a better look at it. From what I can tell though, you're all just reiterating a fact that they've already acknowledged, that it's a bigger and costlier iTouch/iPhone. Also, lulz @ no multitasking.

i dont know if its as revolutionary as they're making it out to be, but considering a sickening amount of people still wouldve purchased it at $1000, the price scheme isnt horrible. The lack of a camera is a bit disappointing.

Seeing as how i love my ipod touch and have pretty much run out of room i'm almost interested in this. If i can get a decent amount of $ for my ipod i may buy one. I'm not sold that the niche apple is aiming for really exists either.

However, based on the track record of the ipod touch and iphone this might be worth a buy. Time will tell i guess.

There really aren't, though. Apple may or may not be overpriced, but they really do make the best products. You may not feel that the improvements are worth the price, and, well, whatever. That doesn't mean they aren't better. Because come on, what this really is is a kindle that can go on the internet and let you type things and play games. It's way better than a kindle. Worth the price? Not to me. But it's still better.

I stand by what I said before-- this is something that's going to be really cool after a few generations.
Really, this just brings us one step closer to Apple making an extremely slim and portable, high powered, fully-functioning netbook. That keyboard dock is a great call.

i dont disagree...but i dont understand why this is a bad thing. there are plenty of apps and programs on the touch that would be infinitely more cool and functional on a bigger screen. additionally, the bigger battery means that you can actually play with it for as long as you'd like to.

i dont know i mean, the price tag isnt exactly low enough for me to run out and buy one on day one, but compared to an ipod, i dont think its awful. additionally, the service price is incredible. i just looked and right now att is charging netbook users 60 bucks a month for 5 gigs of data and 35 for 200 mbs...compared to 15 for 250 and 30 for unlimited, thats pretty damn remarkable.

ultimately though...

this. give it 6 months or so and theyll come out with a second line with new features, more storage space and faster internet.

honestly, if this is really as solid as it sounds, i might consider ditching my 70 dollar a month smart phone for a prepaid phone and one of these guys. im also really curious to see what kinds of things well be able to do with skype on one of these.
