Hands on iPod Touch

About a month ago, Steve Job announced a range of new products in the Apple’s “The Beat Goes On” conference and introduced iPod Touch in the last session of the conference. The gadget accepts international order and starts shipping 28th September.

I ordered 2 units immediately the next day after the conference and received them separately on the 29th and 30th.

What’s hot

iPod Touch is awesome, it’s basically an iPhone without the phone-calling functions. It have all the multi-touch, album flipping thingy Apple has demo’ed on iPhone. It is also has Wifi build-in so you can launch up your Safari browser on your iPod Touch and start getting online.

What’s not

The back of the iPod with chrome silver surface is a major turn off, in my opinion. It is easy scratch-able and finger prints marks can be all over it.
