The question is should you buy it and the answer is whole-heatedly - yes. Those with a second gen model need not apply but if you're looking for a top end PMP, then this is it, certainly until we get a good look at the Zune HD. quote

What we said then still goes: The iPod touch is a terrific media player and portable computing device that doesn’t require any of the commitments or ongoing costs of the iPhone. The new high-end models add the blazing speed of the iPhone 3GS, making them even better for games.

Though I really enjoy the device, I felt let down on a number of features. On the other hand, I felt really let down considering this is billed as a premium media player device, and most recently by apple, a game platform as well. Take bluetooth. I was so happy to hear this was finally...
