    Hi! I am an Ipod Nano 3g owner. I am perfectly satisfied with my baby which is only 1 year old. However, I saw a Touch at the Apple Store in NY and fell in love with the design, the various functions and marvelous screen. So I started thinking of a good excuse to buy it. I sort of need a PDA and perhaps a Touch could be a solution. I have a few questions for veterans:

    1) Does any of you use the Touch as a PDA in an effective way? The alternative for me would be a solid HP IPAQ 111 pocket pc

    2) How fragile is the thing? Will I have to walk with it as if was made of glass (ehm... which it is...)

    3) I've read about several manifacture defects (leaks that allow dust to form under the screen, loose angles and wifi problems) and I am a little bit worried. I am a picky person. When I buy a product I demand perfection. So, how common are those problems?

    Then this probably isn't the product for you.

    Really? Is it that bad? I don't understand what's the matter with Apple. Once upon a time Apple stood for quality. In later years I have heard about tilted screens, leaks, loose angles or scrolling wheels and even a burning ipod!
    It really saddens me, as I love the ipod concept, its design and functionality. Yet, I am not willing to spend a lot of money for the dubious pleasure of taking my Ipod back to the store several times. Buying an Ipod should be pure pleasure, not an act of fear.

    But why would you want a Touch when you already have a 3G?

    It's the exact same thing only minus the phone, and the fact apple charges you for updates.

    Ok, that feels better. How many of you use the PDA functions extensively? Are they good? You see, I need some sort of rational excuse to prefer the Touch to a Pocket Pc.

    Oh, ok.
    Sorry. Considering my life pretty much revoloves around Track, iPod Touch, and iPhones, naturally when I saw a "3G" I instantly assumed iPhone 3G.

    Anyways. I don't know how well you would like a touch for a PDA. Sure you can keep calendars, notes, to-do lists, and a few other handy features. But if you're talking a full fledged PDA, you will be missing Office Mobile, which most PDA's include.
