iPod Touch and iPhone

So I watched the video tour of the new iPod Touch and I was very happy. I was happy because I bought an iPhone. I couldn’t see a single reason to buy an iPod Touch over an iPhone – specially after Apple dropped the iPhone price by $200. The device – for all practical puroposes – is identical to the iPhone minus the phone, data access anywhere, stock app, weather app, camera, you get the point.

The only reason I could think of, is if you are not on AT&T and want the new touch UI. If you are on AT&T and buy an iPod touch, then I am sorry to say, you are not very bright. But again, Apple targets the “not so bright”, so you should be ok. Oh wait, I have a Mac and an iPhone…. Doh!!!

Give me one good reason why you would buy an iPod Touch and not an iPhone!!!

  3. “The only reason I could think of, is if you are not on AT&T and want the new touch UI.”That would be me. AT&T’s network cannot standup to that of VZW (IMHO). I considered the iPhone but got turned off when I found out had to use AT&T service, now if Apple partnered with VZW I could be tempted. ;)I am a fan of my old 40GB 4th Gen IPOD, but now that it’s starting to fail me I think it’s time to get a nice Apple Flash player with the same sophisticated UI as that of the iPhone.

  4. These are all good reasons… I should have been clearer. If you are in the US and are using AT&T; and don’t mind paying $20/month for data plan then buying an iPhone is a no-brainer. Is that better?

  7. Yes, mo’ bettah.I’m not saying $20/mo is expensive for unlimited data/net access, I’m just saying I’m too cheap to pay it. Like I am too cheap to pay for cable or Dish or Tivo (part of that is principle – why should I pay for ads?), or caller id. Yes, I am that cheap. But I am early retired.
