so, I went to the apple store today to get an ipod touch replacement because my ipod kept freezing alot and decided to check out the new touches. I picked one up with my hand and it did seem really thin but, the tapered edges made the ipod feel alot wider. It was really weird. I think I still favor my first gen touch because of the matte gray bezel which I think looks nicer, especially for viewing videos because the chrome is really distracting. I also noticed the 2nd gen touches on display were heavily scratched up everything from the back to the bezel, making it look ugly. All i can say is the 1st gen ipod touch is truly a touch device for, it has one main button and a button to sleep it, everything else is just TOUCH!!!!!!!!
