Add better support and roll over minutes and they had me sold. We switched both our phones over to AT&T last month after researching both.

They bred 5 years of disappointment out of me. When I had AT&T I used my cell phone for emergencies only, because that was what my coverage warranted. Since I switched to Verizon I never get dropped, and can have actual real phone conversations on the thing. If I do get dropped or have coverage difficulty (extremely rare) I can find coverage within a matter of minutes. I also had a rather insane billing issue with AT&T which was one letter from my attorney away from court and nice little chunk of change in my pocket- so I'm a bit bitter with them as well. Verizon's CS has been outstanding to me.

Regardless, I'm pretty sure the iphone will expand to different carriers at some point in the future, and it's not like I really "need" an iphone or anything.

I guess I have had more dropped calls on AT&T than I did on verizon, but when you go to the AT&T store the people are nice to you, at Verizon they're jerks. And that has been my experience in multiple areas. When my phone was faulty under warranty I had to fight with Verizon to give me a new one, when it was time for an upgrade same thing. I had to go to 3-4 different verizon stores before I found someone willing to take the time to get me an upgraded phone.

I know they are real sticklers for their 1 and 2 year upgrade plans, I'm willing to accept that for the service I get. I can't say I have experienced it, but there is no excuse for arrogant customer service. One should only be subjected to that kind of abuse at the Lexus dealer and the Apple Store .

Maybe... since I use my own self modded unit but you really should have your priorities straight. It's all about the touch. Think of all the photo clients you can woo with that!

Me I have an archos 504 though, screen is big enough to make video easily watchable, the real advantage of it though is that I can take my whole dvd collection anywhere, take my output cable, and watch my movies on any tv, it helps because I make trips to my mom's house often 800 miles away and it is handy to not have to carry around a big thing of dvd's.

People who take public transportation to work. I've seen quite a few on the Metro, and have been waiting for the iTouch myself for the same reason.

The problem is . . . I expected the iTouch to have at least 60 Gb of storage

Someone like me maybe?
Who enjoy watching movies while traveling public transportation (train, subway, bus) to work and back. For this task the iPod is about perfect...

iLounge reviewed the classic and nano 3G.

From the iPod classic review:
Quote:
Plugging the same high-end earphones into both old and new iPods yields a noticeable difference in audio hiss; the iPod classic sounds cleaner.
Quote:
As an offset, however, we noticed that its sound was slightly less warm than the 5G iPod’s at comparable volume levels, and by “slightly,” we mean slightly. The same pairs of test earphones—here, Etymotic’s ER-4P, Shure’s SE530, and Ultimate Ears’ UE-11 Pro—sounded just a little more rich when used with the fifth-generation iPod, but they also revealed the much more noticeable static hiss.

How was the sound of the previous iPod generally?

Interesting...now I really don't know what to do...

@DLeeWebb:

I see that you have an iPod 5.5G and a pair of Shure E5c. How did that combination sound? Would it be bad if it sounded a little less warm?

My mini 1G sounds very cold with my Shure SE310 but the mini 1G has bass problems with low impedance earphones anyway, so I would like to hear your opinion.

I have to say that the combination is pleasing to my ear. The combination is very open in terms of sound stage and I would describe the combination as very warm. (I realize that this judgment is very subjective and relative...) If it was a bit less warm I don't think that I would like that sound as much, but I don't think that I would necessarily characterize that as bad in a general sense. I'm always using my ALO Jumbo Cyro lineout and my Tomahawk with the Shures which, of course, makes a big difference over using the headphone jack. I am seriously considering the UE-11's at some point in the not too distant future...

Oh my, and I thought the sound of the iPod wasn't no where near as warm as I liked in the first place. If this new iPod ain't as warm I shall be severly dissapointed.

I want to give Apple my monies for a 16gb iPod Touch but I shall have to listen to one through my EX-85's and see what I think before sinking £270.

I hope I like how it sounds, I so want one of these, and if it supports Wifi Networks with WPA business encryption (the kind where you log in with a user /pass), then I'm all set.
