    So the iPod is just an iPhone without the killer feature... a phone...

    "the folks at Taiwanese website Tinhte.vn"

    GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT if you actually want to city to the source of an article, it's a freaking VIETNAMESE WEBSITE, not taiwanese, and it was actually OBVIOUS from the extension [.vn] of the url alone

    The reason I went for a WinMo phone and an iPod Touch is to have two separate devices - one I can use in the car/on holiday and the other I can use for calls/texts/internet.

    The reason I didn't want an iPhone is because compared with my WinMo phone, it has half the features and costs more a month. The reason I wanted an iPod Touch is because to me, it is one of the better MP3 players out there, and the nice clear screen was an advantage if I wanted to use it in conjuction with the WiFi I have available to me.

    So it wasn't a matter of iSheep, it was the two different devices served different purposes, of which they were the best choice.

    plus it can sometimes work out to be cheaper.

    a iphne 3gs costs nearly 700 sim free. a htc desire is 400 and a ipod touch is around 220.

    This tbh; I was also after a good media player and the features of the iPod Touch (especially the App Store, actually) were what I was after without the expense (I got my Touch second-hand for £120). I don't use my Touch HD for music, because next to the iPod, it's rubbish for it. But the superior (IMO) web browser of the Touch HD (i.e. Opera Mobile), better camera, and various other bits and bobs like not worrying about running down my phone battery when playing music mean having two devices wins over a single iPhone.

    Anywho, I read a while ago they didn't put a camera in the touch as it would then just be an iphone without the phone but with more memory, seems like it might be happening.

    They'd need to offer something to make up the huge difference in pricing of two very similar devices though & I just don't see what they can do about that (excluding the '4G' of course) - 3G & 3GS will still be selling for a while yet & a (if only 2MP) camera makes it 'better' than the 3G & hot on the heels of the 3GS.

    As for 'iSheep' ....oh dear, at least get some originality if you're making sweeping statements that judge tens of millions of people but are based purely on your own needs/opinions. How about iHerd or iFollow?
