Pros Gorgeous and durable screen, sturdy build and amazingly slim form factor, intuitive interface, many features yet still easy to use, stellar battery life, app store, high memory capacity, speedy and reliable OS, web browsing is AMAZING
Cons A bit pricy for high-end model, no sd card slot, no built in microphone for some apps, back scratches easy
Summary The new iPod Touch is the most amazing ipod yet. It has corrected the build from the first generation, and is extremely slick, yet sturdy. Although the mirrored finish scratches easily, you will most likely put it in a case. The screen is really vibrant and makes it amazing for watching video
The media player aspect of the ipod touch is off the charts. The coverflow is extremely slick and fast, and the album art is beautiful to look at. The genius feature, along with the downloading of music on the device makes this iPod the most music friendly yet. The video player is fast loading, and it looks really good.
The browsing experience is off the charts. although you can only connect over wifi, it makes the experience more pleasurable than 3G because its way faster and more satisfying. The built in applications are top notch, and the email is very cool to have.
The app store is amazing. The built in wifi makes it extremely easy to get applications, and the amount of free apps is staggering. And the OS is clean, quick, and barely ever crashes.
The only issues I have with this device is that the back scratches extremely easily (but a case will fix that), there is no microphone for cool apps like shizam (but if you have headphones with a microphone it will work), and no sd card slot (but the capacities are as high as it goes for flash, so memory shouldn't be a issue). I know the price is slightly high, but the features justify its price.
Overall, the iPod touch is the crown jewel of Music players, and if your looking for a device that will be cooler, slicker, and more feature packed then any other music player out there, then the iPod touch is for you.
Pros looks nice, volume rocker
Cons Apple Lossless files drop audio sound
Summary I like everything about it other than the fact that it won't play any of my Apple Lossless files properly. Most (>80%) of my music is lossless and it does not play properly on the touch. Randomly it will drop the sound on lossless files for a fraction of a second. It is an issue with the product not just my unit. I returned one and the replacement does the same thing. I'm going to return this one too. There is a thread about this on the apple support discussion page, but no one from apple is responding.

"Superficial..."on by eldaazure
Pros Practical with all the functions like Wi-fi and etc.
Cons sound quality really can't make it after hearing it again...
Summary Well, looks nice, good for ppl who don need good sound quality. Audiophiles, please stay away.
Pros Great GUI design. App store is a great idea. The touch interface is out of this world.
Cons Audio quality are sucks big time!!!!
Summary I bought the iPod Touch because I wanted to enjoy my music where ever I went. I soon found out that the developers at Apple care more about style and flash than quality reproduction. I thought the primary function of a MP3 player was music. MP3 is a music compression format...correct. If I want to browse the web that's why I bought a laptop. If I want o watch video I will watch it in my home theater not on a tiny screen. If I want to play games I fire up my PS3. Bottom line, I sold my icrap Touch and bought a Cowon S9. Not as fancy with garbage you will not use or things just to show off but the sound quality is outstanding. Finally I have a MP3 player.
Pros cool, and is touch screen.
Cons The audio quality is just average. Which is a big let down.
Not an ipod fan.
