Looking at the 32GB iPod touch

When Apple unveiled the iPod touch our reception of it was lukewarm. Its video wasn't as bright and defined as that of the iPhone. It offered an unnecessarily hobbled set of features--the Calendar application, for example, didn't allow you to add or edit events and it lacked applications such as Stocks, Weather, and Notes. And its playtime didn't measure up to Apple's estimates. Slick though the touch screen interface was, many were disappointed that the touch didn't live up to the dream of the "phone-less iPhone."
