OK. To those that know me, it's no secret...I'm a gadget whore. I love new (or new to me) gadgets and gizmos.
So...I was pretty stoked when the iPhone came out. Only one problem. I was NOT stoked about switching over to ATT/Cingular and having a $60+ cell phone bill a month PLUS $600 for a phone. That would NOT fly at the Casa de Skaggs.
Nor would I expect it too.
So, I figure...OK...eventually Apple will release the iPod with a touch screen..just like the iPhone...only without the phone.
And the did.
And I want it.
First off, for the moment, I can't really afford it...so it's rather a moot point. But some things may be falling in place that will change that.
Second off...I don't really need it.
Third....it's only 8GB...or 16GB (but given point #1, it'd be the 8GB model).
The main draw is the video part of it, and the contacts/schedule and web browsing.
Now if only I had a device that let me do all of that already-I wouldn't have to spend $300 on the iTouch.
My Dell Pocket PC.
The screen is the same size and resolution as the iTouch. Plus it has more things I can do with it.
It's just big.
And not as shiney and new.
BUT.....at $10 for a 2GB memory card....it's exponentially cheaper to keep a media library for than the iTouch.
The more I think about it, the more I'm leaning that direction. Yes, it's not BRAND NEW technology (whore!), but it IS highly comparable-function wise.
And what would I do with the iTouch at work? Listen to music (not watch videos).
And I already downgraded my 40GB iPod to a 1GB Shuffle for that very purpose....why complicate things by going back up to 8 (0r 16) GB?
It's a perfectly sound argument. Now I just need to silence the inner gadget whore and we'll all be just fine. :-)
