5.0 out of 5 stars It's the Apps!, 23 Dec 2010
By 
This review is from: Apple iPod touch 32GB - Black - 4th Generation (Launched Sept 2010) (Electronics)
This is an amazing product. It's a so much more than the a media player. I would say it is closer to a mobile computer, or a mini iPad.
Some things are not obvious at first, such as how to create/edit/view documents, but with the numerous applications you can do nearly everything.
The lack of 3g connectivity limits browsing on the go but the app. Instapaper allows you to save pages for offline reading. You can do that from your laptop and have them instantly synchronized with your iPod, where you can read them later while commuting!
If you like watching YouTube videos there are ways to save them for offline viewing as well (realplayer-keepvid,etc). If you want to transfer and sync. pdf files and other documents with your laptop Dropbox works a treat. The screen is so amazing that you can read technical pdf files, or books using the Kindle app. without any problems. I really didn't expect to be able to read so comfortably on a such a small device.
It is also a universal remote control. I listen to music via Squeezebox and with the aid of iPeng (6£) the touch has replaced my Squeezebox controller for the better. If you prefer Sonos lover there is a free app for that too. The Sonos controller costs more than 250£ !. There are apps for controlling blu-ray players and AV Receivers that have Ethernet or wifi capabilites.

Everything is smooth and fast while crushes are almost non-existent.

For the money you could get a mid-range smart phone but I think a far superior choice would be to get a simple inexpensive phone and the Touch.

Highly recommended!
