    Hey IPTF,
    My 19th birthday is coming up, and coincidently it's 12 days before Christmas. My parents asked if I wanted a GPS unit/replacement ipod touch? That is, a TomTom (GPS unit) for my birthday - and an iPod Touch 32GB for Christmas (my 8gb 2G was stolen at uni).

    A mate today raised the question of "Why don't you just get an iPhone for combined birthday/Christmas? and save yourself carrying around a GPS unit AND a music player" which is a good idea, so I put the idea forth to my parents and they didn't mind - however I would have to pay the difference (~$300AUD) - to which I'm happy to do so.

    I want to know what your opinion of this is, and what IS better/faster - ipod touch 3g, or iphone 3gs.

    ATM: I have a 12 month contract with 3 (three)(started in July sometime), Samsung F480 $29 plan without internet. I have wifi at home and would rarely need to use internet mobile. (however I do not pay for the cap plan)..

    Do I just go with the TomTom and Ipod Touch 32gb, or do I just get an iPhone, I'm really confused.

    Your suggestions?

    Well, the iPod touch3G will be slightly faster, since there are less program running in the background.

    You sir, don't know what the he'll you are talking about.

    EDIT:
    Didn't read the OP's post until now and I didn't realize he/she was talking about the iPhone compared to iPod touch 3G.

    Have you tried looking at something like ebay or something like craigslist (not sure what they have in your area). I imagine you can pick up even a 3gs for much cheaper than retail.

    Problem is.. I like warranty, even if I've never actually had to use warranty on any of my electronics (except xbox 360's 3 red rings of death - but I don't include that because it's Microsoft haha).. and yeah just like having that peace of mind that i'm backed for 12 months by apple, whereas on ebay, you just don't know 100%.. know what I mean? But I'll have a look around if I can get it cheaper with warranty

    Wow. Finally some sense of grammar. Woot. Anywho, I believe you should get an iPhone 3gs. Its basically an iPod Touch 3g with a camera, and a cell. All 3 devices in 1 ^~^

    Problem with having an iPhone, if you lose it or get it stolen, you are short of an iPod and a phone. If you lose your iPod touch, you only lose an iPod and not a phone.
