OK, this is my first iPod, so I write this as a completely unbiased new user, previously used an iRiver Mp3 player with Sennheiser ear buds, so like my music to sound good. Not disappointed with the iTouch from this perspective, music is clear and crisp and many different Graphic Equaliser settings are available so you can tune to your taste.

I don't find the 16Gb to be a limitation either. I've got several hours of video on mine along with masses of music and I still have space left over. Maybe it's just a case of good housekeeping; once I've watched the TV/Video I've uploaded, I tend to remove it again, so 16Gb is never likely to be an issue for me.

Couple of things that I find a little annoying though. If want to listen to music and then browse the web for instance, I start the music player then hit the home key and open Safari, no problem. But, what I'm finding is that the music player will work for a while, but then stops for no apparent reason. I have to go back into the player, select and start the track again. It might work ok again for 10 minutes or so before doing the same again. So basically, multitasking with the iTouch seems to be a bit buggy right now.

Second problem, you can't add entries to the Calendar! So what's the point of having it then, if you can't add entries without syncing to a Mac? Sorry, lost me on this one, I know I could Jailbreak it, but I shouldn't have to do this just to make use of the calendar should I?

Next there's a weird problem if you save video as TV shows in iTunes. They seem to sync with the iTouch, but when you open the video player all I get is Movies, no way to see the TV shows. Consequently, I have to load all video files as movies to be able to browse them on the iTouch.

"Wow!" was the first thought that entered my head as I unwrapped my new toy - even the packaging is fantastic!

This really is a marvellous piece of kit, *doffs hat to Steve Jobs for another amazing innovative product*

Okay so it's only 16GB and, as with all methods of storage, you don't get exactly what it says on the tin due to system files and the like. That said, and despite what others have droned on about, this is as good as it gets for publicly available flash drive technology at the moment.

Obviously there'll be storage improvements further down the line, perhaps even switching to the hard drive technology that's in the previous iPods and the Classic. However, I did read a review that the cover flow function on the classic absolutely kills the battery so it could be a case of waiting until the flash drive technology improves, which it undoubtedly will.

Anyway storage aside I can't find any fault with this little gem. The touch screen is incredibly responsive which, after using the Sony DSC-T50, is quite remarkable. The pop up keyboard for internet surfing and WiFi configuration is a bit fiddly so you wouldn't want to use it for writing large emails but that's a very minor thing imo.

Cover flow is seamless which is probably, in part, due to the flash drive. YouTube and Safari apps are a nice touch - I can't see myself using it as a web browser that much, but watching YouTube videos I certainly will. Contacts and calendar all look very pretty. Only quibble here is that, if you're using the Vista contacts and calendar apps, the contacts will sync (including photos!) but the calendar isn't recognised at the moment - still, that's easily fixed with a software upgrade. Outlook users (on any platform) won't have any issue with this.

Just when their competitors were finally figuring out how to copy the iPod, Apple dropped this bomb on them. The iPod Touch is a very impressive piece of technology with a lot of promise for the future. It's much more than an MP3 player. It's really two thirds of an iPhone, and much more like a PDA than the previous iPods were. The multi-touch screen is radically different to a standard touch screen in that, it tracks your finger movement, allows two fingers to be used simultaneously, and knows the difference between a tap and a hold. Combined with Apple's cutting-edge animated interface, this provides a very fluid, elastic, slidey, zoomy user experience.

One of the previous reviewers criticised Apple for not supporting 3rd party applications. In October 2007 Apple announced that a software development kit (SDK) would be made available to third-party developers in February 2008. So, in just a couple of months, you can look forward to a lot of new Apps designed specifically for the iPod Touch. These Apps will further extend the capabilities of what the iPod Touch can do, but will (most interestingly) transform it into a respectable handheld games console!

Safari, for me, is the killer app of the iPod Touch. It lets you go on the real Internet, not the mobile Internet, and look at real web pages. You can log into Amazon.co.uk on the iPod Touch and add things to your Shopping Basket. You can check your gmail account, archive and compose new messages. You can read RSS feeds. You can view PDF files, MP3 files and Quicktime video files. You can use over 600 free web apps such as JiveTalk, which enables you to have IM chats with people on MSN Messenger and Google Talk. When you can do so much on such a small device, it makes you wonder if you even need a proper computer!
