Good points:
Great little gadget, absolute must have.

I love listening to it, especially when you have a decent pair of headphones!
amazing to play games like Angry Birds or Doodle Jump on!
Bad points:
Not great performance when upgraded to iOS 4.2 which really slows it down.

Not supported for some new apps that are coming out, like Infinity blade, so maybe a 3rd/4th Gen model would be better

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I got this device about four months ago to replace my micro hi-fi system which had DAB live radio rewind with a CD player. This IPOD Touch 8GB is really fanatstic and with all the additional applications is something magical. The IPOD is quite intuitive to use and I have loaded 32 CDs and it is only half full. I bought the App "Tune In Radio" and through this App I can listen to radio stations all over the world. The Tune In Radio can rewind about half and hour, can pause live radio, record and one can search for radio stations by language or by other means. The sound is very clear docked on a rechargeable speaker system and via the headphones. One can just about listen to it on its own speaker. One can use the IPOD in Google almost as one would on a computer. One can do one's weekly shopping via an App and can send and receive E-mail as one would via a computer. The U-Tube App obtained with the IPOD is really fantastic and I listen to my favourite music with the artists singing. It has got a Contac list, Notes that one can type in and wirelessly send off to one's computer besides many other features. The Apps are updated with newer versions.
Bad points:
The disadvantage is that according to what I hear, that once the IPOD Touch battery expires, this can only be replace by an Apple store. This would be very inconvenient and expensive. The battery should have been capable of being replaced by the owner. I hope that Apple are listening!
