My trusty six year old iPod decided that the hard drive should stop making music, and instead make "plopping" noises.
Shuffle Probably all the music I need. I listen to only a little bit at any time, and though this device is 1gig and I need 8gig for my average collection of traveling music, this would be good enough.
Nano Tiny screen, but it can hold everything that my last iPod was holding. I am pretty sure I would go blind trying to look at the screen.
Classic Pointless. Too much data, and still a tiny screen.
Touch The software is broken, or half assed. Take your pick. It is crippled compared to the iPhone, and while the video would be nice, I would stay constantly annoyed at the half assed implementation. They should at least get the mail client working (and open up the SDK for it). I wonder if I could read books on it...
I don't want to use my cell phone, my Treo is dieing enough as is.
