    I don't think so. It could be the greatest thing ever, but it would take at least a year for Apple to have any real competition. People are more likely to buy iPods right now. In the future, that might change, though.

    Definaly. Might get this instead of the Zune HD.

    dual cameras and 1 is HD. I know the Ipod touch 3g wont have that.
    dedicated camera button
    SD card slot.

    It has somethings the ipod touch needs

    Exactly. They are doing the same thing Palm did to the iPhone; including features that the iPod touch really needs.
