    First off, where I live you cannot get an Iphone, so that's out of the question.

    I'm torn between springing for something like the HTC Desire or going the route of a new Ipod touch and just a plain jain dumb phone.

    What advantages of would a new Ipod Touch have vs. having a smartphone such as the HTC desire?

    Thanks in advance.

    Noooo you should look at the threads where ipod touch is involved. iPod touch is the greatest mobile system except for ipad and iPhone. Or i have a better idea. wait until the 4G ipod touch comes

    i am using the ipod touch 64g, & carry a smart phone for txt only. I use line 2 app to get a phone line on my ipod to make calls. I use a txt app on it also til line 2 adds txt this Sept. it beats paying the extra $30.00 a month for the internet. just because im kinda broke and trying to save $ he & there like everone else. if you can afford it get the smartphone if not do what I do. its like having a pocket computer without having to pay monthly.

    I'd get an iPod touch, a mifi, and a skype account. So then you could use the iPod touch with one of the free texting apps that gives you a real number, to text. Then a skype account to call people, and if they have skype on their phone it's free to call skype to skype. And a mifi to always be able to make/recieve texts/calls. That's awesome.

    whoa jesus! that sounds like a really good idea. but how would i set all of that up apart from the skype account, which i already have. as you can see i have an ipod touch, a crap-ass phone, and no iphone

    I would get iPod Touch.

    1. do other OS stores have over 200k apps
    2. Can you mod it run to run iphone os on it, ipod can run others.
    3. Can you develop your own theme for android?
