You had me at pinch…

Ipod TouchI just saw a video of the launch of the Apple ipod touch via the BBC website. It looks fantastic.

It also comes with WIFI which means you can connect to ITunes on the go. Another surprise was Safari web browser, so you can browse the web. The part that most impressed me though was the ability to pinch the screen to zoom in!

There are loads of other cool features like the accelerometer that automatically rotates it the screen to landscape. Not sure if I can get one soon as I spend my gadget allowance on a N95 already.

    You might be better off if you can’t afford it right now. They have rushed this one out at a high price in an effort to be one of the must have gadgets for Christmas. The disk size is too small to hold enough videos to keep people entertained without having to that’s what the screen size is really for. In the New Year I expect we’ll see a drop in price and storage bump.

    Think I’ll be taking your advice on this one. I saw a few stories about unhappy iPhone customers who bought the phone and then the price dropped $200.
