The new ipod touch is great. It is perfect for someone who doesnt want to pay huge money for an iphone and needs an upgrade to their old ipod. Lets not forget its an ipod and is for someone who likes listening to music on the go so comparing it to ipads and the google nexus doesnt make sense. If you want web browsing get an ipad, if u want to listen to music, get an ipod.
look at the Tech Specs - longest list of NO's since Margaret Thatcher
Another thing to be considered, price-wise, is that the Nexus 7 is now available in 32GB flavour for a massive £1 more than the 16GB version...
I'm sticking with my 4th gen Touch as most of the sound quality improvement is down to iOS 6 which has given mine a whole new lease of life !
What a thread! i'm with you on the pricing GoWithaFow, at £235 it seems a more of a relistic price for the Touch and as a member of the Apple employee program i get these benefits. But my problem is now i just don't know what to buy iPad min , iPod Touch or even the new Surface Tablet as they all have areas that would benefit me so for now i'm sitting on my money and waiting for all the reviews
My daughter has just ordered one of these new iPod Touch's to replace her perfectly serviceable 2nd gen 8gb touch.
The Apple Store still doesn't have enough stock in the "right colour", so there's a week + wait for postal delivery and she wasn't prepared to wait a few weeks.
Personally I think £249 is over the top (she paid £234) for such a device, £199 would seem more realistic to me; but she was happy to pay the extra.
Now that we know that an iPad Mini costs only £30 more (but no Retina display) I am a little concerned that she could have had more for her money. However she's still quite happy with her decision, as she wants a device that fits in a small pocket and can go anywhere.
"You can get me the iPad Mini for Christmas Dad!" She casually remarked !!!!!!!
Is this iPod touch really worth £250 though? It seem pretty excessive to me. I would have not been surprised if it lost a star because of the price. How many people can afford £250 for a touch?

The picture doesn’t have the impact of the top 4K TVs, but it’s still a fantastic watch
A superb budget tablet that, while not flawless, shows some of its pricier competition how it’s done
This Bose is tiny, but its warm, rich bassy sound is music to our ears
