I think its worth it. I personally think people only like the iPod because of its games but adding a camera and facetime will add to it. Maybe see how the iPod Touch 4G compares with the ZuneHD2. The camera's going to suck though. I'd rather get a camera instead of get a DSi or an iPod Touch 4th generation with this 0.3(dsi) or 0.7 (ipod) camera. The ZuneHD (1st generation) has a lot of features over the iPod touch like HD radio,OLED,Nvidia graphics,and better sound quality. Once they release a selection of games for the ZuneHD, I'm sure lots of people will get the ZuneHD and ZuneHD2. This is just my personal opinion though.

if you can get an iphone 4 you should get that, but ipod touch 4g has the same processsor and screen as the iphone 4, and that screen is amazing.

You mean the Retina Display. The Retina is actually part of your eyeball.

Awesome!

The comparison chart is wrong, the 4G only has 256mb of ram, just like the 3G.

OLED (Zune HD) vs LCD (iPod). OLED wins. If he's just going to listen to music (zuneHD=better sound quality) and watch movies (zuneHD has OLED=better colors and has nvidia graphics which=better graphics), the ZuneHD wins.

I would say its not worth it if all u do is music, and watch videos. You are not going to convent video for ipod in higher resolution then you did in the older one so it will be almost the same quality and getting something for just that is a waist of money. I used a iphone 4 for a week and had 3gs before that and at first iphone 4 looks very good and now it feels the same once you adjust to the screen quality.

Not the same screen. It has the same resolution, but but goes from a super high quality IPS panel (ip4) to a meh quality high res TN panel (itouch 4)

Then wikipedia is wrong. The iPod touch has been taken apart, and the ram was physically counted. It only has 256mb.

Ouch. Definitely stay away from that. Without the IPS panel its worthless.

I would wait for Samsung's Super-AMOLED YB-MB2 pmp. Its basically a Galaxy S without the phone.

Or if you don't mind the bulk, for the same price as the iPod Touch 4 you can get a 7 or 11" Archos tablet running Android 2.2.

In terms of music and video playback Android has a huge advantage. It supports more codecs and more resolutions, and with custom roms you get a DSP manager:



You're waiting until Christmas right? If Samsung releases their YB-MB2 before then then get it for sure. Bigger, better quality screen, better playback, expandable memory, faster processor, faster graphics, more ram. Everything.
