    Does anybody have an iPod touch? I'm thinking of getting one for my husband for his birthday/Christmas (he's a December baby). I'm debating whether it is worth it or not. He has an older version iPod right now that he uses pretty much every day at the gym. I'd love nothing more than to just buy him the iPhone but we don't want the added cost on our phone bill right now.

    Any opinions - pros/cons to the iPod touch?

    Hmm if he uses at the GYM then I don't recommend the ipod touch because the screen is so big it might crack it while exercising.

    I have one and love it! I use it at the cardio machines at the gym pretty regularly.

    I LOVE MINE! It is just like an iPhone without the phone. You can get wifi and all the apps you want on it. It really is worth the money in my opinion. I exercise with mine regularly and have not had any issues.

    Just get a sports case for it and it will be fine. The only real issue I can see is touching it with sweaty hands. There are no external controls, but you can set it up and then lock it just like any other ipod. You can also download fitness related apps to put on.

    Before I got my iphone, my ipod touch was my favorite possession. They are great!

    I have one too and I regularly work out with it. I love mine, but I need to get a bigger one. My tends to freeze sometimes if I change the song a few too many times. I got mine for free with my laptop though, so it has been well worth it!

    My boyfriend has one and he absolutely loves his as well. There are so many awesome applications he has found. He even added a remote for his computer when he's playing music. So if he's in a different room he just gets out his Ipod and turns the music up or down.

    *sigh*

    Now I want one. DW will never buy it for me, so I'll be saving a few dollars at a time until I can get it.

    Awesome, thanks for the input! I think my hubby would really like it (seeing as how I can't buy him the $2000 surround sound system he really wants!)
