I've used the iPhone, which is a superset of the Touch's functionality. It's VERY slick. The web browser is very cool, too.

Definitely looks pretty cool. I think the touch interface will eventually replace the click wheel as the standard on all iPods.

i think you should look into a 30gb ARCHOS 605 WiFi cheaper and alot better

Depends on your needs. If you just need to play your MP3s and iTunes music and videos, iPod kills the Archos. If you are downloading video, have DRM WMA files, then the Archos is a good choice. The Archos is a lot bigger than the iPod, although it has twice the storage at 70% the price. However, the interface on the Archos is a bit kludgy, and like everything non-iPod, doesn't support DRM AAC.

hmm do you have one? im looking into buying an archos or an ipod touch and so far from all the reviews i read archos seems to be better, plus i think the dvr option is really awsome even though you have to buy the dvr station for 99 bucks, mostly i wanna use it for mp3's, movies (avi files), as a dvr to record tv shows and for the net. what do you think would be better? also i dont know how much the battery would last on the ipod touch but on this archos its 5 some hours movie time, its really hard to make the choice lol

My parents both have iPhones, and I've used the iPod features quite a bit. I've played with the Archos and read some reviews, but I don't own one.

For what you are describing, the Archos would probably be a better fit. Bigger screen, AVI support (DivX, I assume?), DVR. However, it isn't going to fit in your pocket, and it won't support iTunes. For some people one or both of those are deal killers.

I have a buddy that bought the archos and it was a complete disaster for him, he ended up returning it and getting an iPod.

That's just one person's experience though, obviously.
