Arrived on the 12th September. First impressions box looks impressive. The touch did not disappoint. This latest version has a slimmer profile, a speaker, external volume control and comes with version 2.1 although I still had to update the firmware.

Very similar spec to the 1st version. Easy to use and loads apps to download. The internet browser is easy to zoom in with and connecting to home wifi worked fine. Loads of applications to add from itunes, lots of them free. Downloaded a video and that looks great too.

You do need to connect the touch to a PC with itunes first as you cannot just connect to wifi and use it without sync'ing it first.

Well worth the money a great gadget you will have fun playing with for a long time to come.

Battery life - Had it on all day today listerning to music and connect to my home wifi. Lastest about 13 hours before warning that the battery was down to 20%. Obviously if I had turned off the wifi it would have lasted longer

Considering that this is pretty much the new generation of technology it excites me everytime I get it out. I have absolutely fallen inlove with it, however because of the cost I am slightly scared to pull it out on the bus home as people in Birmingham don't have the best tendancies ;) However the wireless connectivity is great, I can sit in my room and still have no problem accessing my wireless from several rooms away. The sound is great from the built in speakers and that was a completely added bonus as I had no idea the new generation has that. The first time I started it up itunes found it quickly and the automatic set-up was quick and painless and the iPod was ready for use within less than half an hour. It's extremely thin however is quite long but I find it still fits snugly in my pockets. Graphics are great and battery life is average I find. Youtube really is an added bonus but you can't watch them without an internet connection (obviously). Considering the iPhone is pretty much double the price, this is amazing for the price. The warrantees an added bonus and amazon are always great and fast. One can also purchase silicon cases for cheap but they're not necessary as the screen is pretty much scratch resistent. The only fault I have with this is the earphones really but that's nothing as they are just too big for my ears and give me a head ache, but that was an easy and cheap fix. So well done, no regrets on this one!

This is an impartial review based on my experience of the iPod Touch 2nd Generation, and other Personal Media Players.

Strengths:

+ WiFi and Safari Browser. Superb mobile browsing experience. For example, you can stream BBC iPlayer to the Touch perfectly. A real joy.

+ Youtube widget for playback of youtube videos.

+ Integrated Nike + Support, so that you can use the device as a training tool for exercise.

+ App Store. You can download from thousands of Apps on iTunes, including games, and stream internet radio, for instance.

+ Superb capacitive glass touch screen. Older touch screens use `resistive' technology. These work on a different principle, and are less responsive. (The Archos 5 uses a resistive screen. The Cowon S9, however, uses a capacitive one like the iPod Touch).

+ Incredible User Interface. Beautifully conceived and implemented. Music and Videos are organised with an astonishing attention to the user's goals, and you regularly feel that Apple designers have read your mind when you go about tasks.

Here's an example: you wish to download a podcast. You go to an internet address in Safari. Safari automatically grabs the address, boots you into iTunes (on the device itself), and takes you to the podcast listing within the iTunes store. Two more clicks and you're downloading your content. That's the way things should be done.

+ Advantages over the previous generation include a dedicated volume rocker, slightly more curvaceous design, slightly improved battery life, integrated Nike + support and mini speaker.

Weaknesses:

- Very, very average sound quality. Now it is a mystery to me why so many users and reviewers overlook this issue.

What a brilliant product! I was new to Apple products as I had tried to resist Apple's dominance in the music player business, but reluctantly gave in because so many products are designed to work with them eg connectivity in cars, speakers with docks etc. But the iPod Touch is such a fantastic product I am completely bowled over. Everything about it has a feel of quality and sophistication and best of all works well. The touch screen leaves all others I have used, eg sat nav, in the dark ages. The wi fi connection works anywhere in my house where laptops struggle. I can watch the BBC iPlayer on the TV etc etc (with the correct lead) Brilliant!
One caveat though, you do have to accept Apples way of doing things eg music etc from the Apple Store. If you want to do things differently from the way Apple wants you to do then, perhaps this isn't the product for you. For me,for me Five Stars!
