I was shocked to have my iPod in my hands 24 hours after it left China! It was a pleasant surprise b/c I wasn't expecting it until Monday. As others have said, it is one awesome little machine. Feels great in my hands and is fun to use. My screen quality looks fabulous so far. I am thrilled to have my contacts and calendar at my fingertips. Now I wait for someone to hack it so I can add functionality to the calendar and notes and mail is on my wish list too. The only thing I hate -- the piece of cheap plastic that I am assuming is supposed to be a cradle. Can anyone tell me how to use it?
