Advantages: Internet in my handbag, huge storage capacity
Disadvantages: Battery drains quite quickly, Not scratchproof on back
I brought the Ipod Touch as a Christmas present to myself last year and what a present it is!
I previously had a pink Ipod mini which was my present to myself for my 21st a few years ago.
It was a lot more expensive when i brought it but worth every penny in my opinion, I didn't want to be tied down to an Iphone with a contract this was the next best option as it has nearly all the same features.
My favourite thing about the Ipod touch is the internet via the Safari browser and the ability to log onto WiFi networks when i am out and about, i am not a fan of laptops and having instant internet access in my handbag is something i love.
I use Safari for researching places i am visiting, checking weather and most importantly connecting to my web based email provider, i also love that i can watch BBC programmes via the I Player and i often spend hours in bed watching programmes and catching up.
Obviously the I Pods main function is to play music, the sound quality is brilliant and being able to see the album covers is something i really appreciate and the storage capacity is great, i don't think i will ever fill the 16gb.
My only negatives about the Ipod touch is the battery life as already mentioned, its ok when playing music but watching videos and being online drains the battery a lot.
I also wish the stainless steel back was scratchproof like the front as after it being in my back it has a huge key scratch on it and i have to have it in a case and feel the resale value has diminished, not that i want to sell it yet anyway.
Overall a great gadget and i recommend it highly to Ipod fans new and old.
