    The iPhone/iPod Touch can't even play HD so there is no point.

    Well, I'm nearly positive the YouTube HD is not true HD, so it could probably play it.

    well, it doesn't even say HD it says HQ
    meaning its not true HD its just a better quality, now converted in H.264
    so it should be viewable in the next firmware update maybe in the iPhone and iPod Touch,
    seeing as most youtube were converted to H.264 for the iPhone in the first place, im guessing the HQ version is also being converted for iPhone.

    No, its truly HD. 1280 x 720. I even downloaded the Video. It was 1280 x 720 @ 2.2 MB Bitrate.

    This video is in 720p: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4pXfHLUlZf4

    Maybe in the iPod Touch 3rd gen, but without the hardware, the software is worthless.

    Is the iPod Touch 3rd Gen going to be a huge 720p Tablet? :O Cause if not, HD is pointless unless you use it to watch it on your TV
