As most of us know, the iPhone is a pretty popular device. It was hyped up so much before it's first release and then again for the 3g. Sure, it has a phone with average service quality that is greatly overpriced. But it has a phone. And it seems that the phone part of the iPod is really the only major difference from the scaled down iPod Touch. The second generation iPod Touch is especially close to the iPhone. Just without that $100 bill each month. You see, the iPhone lacks necessary features for a high end phone you expect to be getting when you purchase it. Below is a diagram to help you see what your getting for all of that money. Please Register or Log in to view images You see, the iPhone does win. Barely. It has a touch screen and a phone. The iPod Touch has a touch screen and no phone which saves you that $100 every single month. The iPod Touch is definitely a better product. Get yourself an average phone with an average plan for less than $25 a month and enjoy the iPod Touch and your extra $75 a month. Think about it, is Apple really trying to get you a great phone? No. It lacks obvious features yet you have to fork out loads of money to have the phone. Be smart, and go for the iPod Touch.
