This review is from: Apple iPod touch 32GB (Launched Sept 2009) (Electronics)I got my iPod touch earlier this year and I have to say, it is very nearly a faultless piece of technology. Obviously there are some drawbacks to it, and the main ones I have found are:
- Not being able to watch videos on websites that don't play them through Quicktime
This has the potential to be quite annoying as I like to watch user submitted videos on websites such as MPORA, which are streamed through a different provider.
- Putting a low quality (at high volume) speaker on the model
The speaker is useful at a fairly low to medium levels of volume if you want to show someone a song out loud, you cannot get any personal pleasure from listening to this speaker.
- The shake to shuffle feature doesn't work while iPod is 'asleep'
While this is good for when you're walking when the iPod is shaking all the time when driving it is pretty annoying that I have to take my eyes off of the road to unlock the iPod then change the song.
Of course all of these are just nit picking at the iPods clearly superior technology, but if those few points were improved - for me it would be the perfect piece of technology.
So in conclusion if you are considering between the iPod touch 32gb 3G and a different similarly priced mp3 player. Go for the iPod straight away. Trust me its worth it!

You can turn off the auto screen lock function, so might be useful for you when driving, I've done this, makes life easier although the screen then stays lit

if you double click the home button then shake it then it will work, just make sure that the pause backwards and forwards skip buttons appear. You will see what i mean

Apple dont touch your ipod if you break the screen, that is the downside to the ipod touch.

Careful with unlocking the ipod whilst driving! I downloaded an App called FluxTunes which allows song changing by swiping in certain directions so no need to take your eyes off the road. The screen also remains unlocked.

'Shuffle'- Think about it. If you were running for a bus then it would shuffle even if it was a sleep.
