I finally got to play with an iPod Touch yesterday, courtesy of a project I’m working on at work. The interface is beautiful and slick, and I was amazed at how thin it is compared to my previous generation iPod Video. Sadly we don’t have wifi at work yet, so I wasn’t able to try out Safari, YouTube or iTunes on the device.
One of my colleagues was considering whether to get a Touch or Classic to replace his early-generation one that had broken, but since he has quite a large collection of music the limited 16GB capacity of the largest Touch was just not enough. Will there be a 32GB version I wonder? If I got one (which I’m very tempted to now!) I could manage with the 16GB version, but I wonder how many people are being put off by the relatively small capacity?
I’m also going to be trying out an Archos (with wifi), a Creative Zen and a Walkman. I doubt any of them will live up to the standard of the iPod. I may report back with some brief reviews.
