    Not sure if this is the right place for this ........................ but here goes:

    My long time friend, a rather old MP3 player, has died on me and I have been looking at the latest Apple Ipods that are available. I like the look of the Nano and the Touch versions but I'm unable to deceide which one to go for.

    I would appreciate any feedback be it good or bad on these two products.

    I also use a nano. great thing about it is that you can make it talk to you so you dont need to look at the screen menus

    I've got an ipod touch and as Jim says lovely bit of kit. Its got Films, Music, Internet and photos as well as some good apps including the tube map. They are coming down in price as well.

    Hi Sonja

    Thanks for the info:thumb:

    Would you rate the Touch as a better option than the Nano, given that there is a price difference of around £60?

    Hi Geoff
    I'm with the Iphone if you are thinking of changing your mobile.
    Having previously used Blackberries and several other business models I find the Iphone perfect, all the music I need, not the greatest of cameras but cameras are for taking photographs and it takes a reasonable snap, the maps feature can prove quite useful and there are many great apps and many are free.
    One great app which is great if you are visiting a new area is titled "Around Me' - will tell you of nearest supermarkets, filling stations, take aways etc. etc.
    Well worth considering.

    Given the choice I would go for the Iphone, but as I have a company supplied phone with all calls paid for, I can not justify the cost or the need.

    The Touch is a fantastic piece of kit, I have the 16g version and it will hold thousands of photo's or tunes or whatever you want, there are also a lot of free apps for it.
