Pros Portability, versatility, durability, usability, funability, everything
Cons I wish it had a camera and that it was a phone. Basically I wish it was an iPhone that cost $300 and didn't require a contract.
Summary Combined with an endless supply of applications from the iTunes Store, the iPod Touch is a unique portable device that has doubled as my Skype phone, wireless mouse and keyboard for my MacMini Media Center, portable games machine, portfolio for my web, video and photography work, currency converter, financial tracker, USB thumb drive, PDA & contact manager, Amazon Kindle, Japanese instructor, portable dictionary, and music/podcast player. They could have charged me $400 and I would have paid it. Amazingly, with all of those uses that I listed above, I've only spent a total of $20 on the App Store. Incredible.
If you don't have an iPod, get an iPod touch. Period.
Oh, and the Facebook/Twitter experience is SOOOOOOO much better on a portable device like this one. I find myself updating my status and catching up with friends much more often.
Pros The Apps, the interface, the wi-fi, Kindle ... the list of what Apple did right is too long for this space.
Cons No FM radio (Nano has one!), no camera (Nano has one - sucks, but it has one), can't rearrange application screens from device - you have to use iTunes to do it, App store is not the best to navigate through (like iTunes).
Summary Love the device, but I'm a little disappointed that Apple didn't take the opportunity to advance the Touch more on the 3rd gen. Simple things like an FM radio capability would have been nice. A camera would have been cool. However, what the device does right, it does really really well. I travel A LOT (75-80,000 freq flyer miles/yr), and have historically used a PSP for my travelling entertainment. Once I got the 32GB Touch, my balance shifted. Where the screen is bigger on the PSP, the Touch is more portable (fits in my pocket), has more internal storage, has a far better music player, has a Kindle app with lots of free books, has lots of free apps (including check registers, games, productivity tools, etc.), and does pretty much everything the PSP does. PSP does have a bigger screen (not a touch screen though), is a better gaming platform, and I can hook it up to most modern TVs to watch movies from it. However, I am finding the Touch a better companion on the plane, and I am using my PSP more at the end of the day if there's nothing on TV in the hotel. To my dismay, because I really enjoyed my PSP a lot, I am finding that I use it less and less now that I have a Touch. I can take my Touch with me everywhere, and all my books, movies, games, and music come with me without adding to the amount of stuff to carry ... just bring the Touch and some headphones (if you want to listen to music, otherwise I leave them in my bag). The PSP requires external memory cards, UMDs, a carrying case, and is way too big to fit in a pocket.
I'll wrap this up by saying this is a great device. I wish Apple would just skip a generation and bring all the best this device could have to market at one time, instead of dragging out the incremental improvements. You know they could do it if they wanted to. I figure this is probably the last or next to last "update" version of the Touch before a total remake that takes another giant leap forward (like Apple usually does with new products), but I love it none-the-less.

Pros The touch screen responds very well.
Cons Apple still has not made a removable battery for this ipod and a camera is still missing. When listening to the music without earbuds, the sound from the speakers begin to "break up" at higher volumes.
Summary I am a first time Apple product owner, and I think this little device is cool. Since I travel often for work and pleasure, the ipod Touch will be handy when I am at the airport. Alot of the airports that I've been to offer wi-fi, so the ipod Touch will keep any waiting time bearable. Plus, it is great to find out flight information if your gate has changed or plane is delayed.
"It's Awesome!"on by QweenShawtii
Pros I love all the features...
And its not just a normal Ipod..It includes music player, podcast support, video playback,a Safari Web browser, photo viewer, an e-mail reader and has alot of utility programs..
Cons I didnt Find any Cons till now..
Summary As my point of View...I think the Ipod is Totally Different than Any Ipod That the company 'Apple' Released..And it's just Awesome!
Pros Love how don't have to wear earphones to listen to music and can control your computer via bluetooth. Touchscreen very responsive. Screen quality/colours fantastic. Not just MP3 player but handy little PDA as well. Able to sync contacts and notes.
Cons BIG drawback is you are limited to Itunes for everything. No camera, radio, video recorder. The bluetooth option is rather pointless You can't send documents via 3rd party applications via bluetooth. Limited options with equalizer
Summary Def recommend it to anyone who is looking for a mini PDA/ music player. I got this to replace my Ipod shuffle which sadly broke. I was still able to charge it but I could not syn it with Itunes anymore. After a lot of searching on the internet, I found out the problem - the jack-plug on the dock had broken inside the shuffle - or somewhere. I tried to take it to pieces with the help of the internet again, but it ended up in a million pieces.
So in general - I am a gadget geek and have always wanted a PDA type thing and this ticks all the boxes. My 2 main gripes are the limited bluetooth options You'd think with all the options of bluetooth available there would be more options for this, ITunes as a music player, is ok, but to sync contacts/calander etc is limited.
Would have preferred the 64gb but way too expensive.
