"best mp3 player"on by rv718
Pros little to no custimazation
but after jailbreaking the possibilities are endless
Cons -battery life-it has acceptable battery life but less than the previous model
Summary although maybe not the best music quality some features make this device ireplacable
-app store with +70,000 apps,games ect
having prehaps one of the biggest app stores greatly increases what this device is capable of
this device is certainly fast, beating all other pocket devices by a long shot(except maybe the nexus one but thats only with browsing)
sure right out of the box you get little to no custimazation
but after jailbreaking it the possibilities are endless
use your voice to select songs, this features awesome
-not so good music quality
-i would've liked that great snap dragon processor that the nexus one has
-battery life-it has acceptable battery life but less than the previous model
-still no oled/amoled display
Pros -Good Mini Computer
Cons -Built in speaker quality

Summary After receiving the Apple iPod Touch 3G 32GB for Christmas (12/25/09) and adding only two third party applications and a handful of the songs, the Touch would not run the third party apps. Initially the third party apps worked well until syncing with the Itunes software and loading a few songs. After that the system would not run any of the applications. It would simply flash the initial start up app screen briefly and close.
After spending about 5+ hours of restarting, restoring, deleting and reinstalling the apps plus countless variations trouble shooting, I finally gave up. I had the most current version of itunes and the Touch so there are obviously bugs.
I know there are a million's of apple fans out there, but this terrible experience has not made me one of them.
I prefer wmp 11 and other media players to itunes since it proprietary in nature and will not play wma files without converting my entire song library.
Wished it work since it does look nice and the touch appeared to be very functional. But all the pros don't offset a disfunctional operating system.
