Get one. Buy extra charge/sync cable. buy a silicon case.Enjoy the Apps
As a newbie with no ipod Touch experience and no manual, I am amazed at HOW GREAT this product is! Manuals can be had free at www.apple.com. The charge/sync cable by Apple was the only issue I had. It fell apart. Most cables have two release tabs on the side. This one does not have these. A newbie assumes you pull on this connector from the top and bottom. WRONG!!! Hold the connector on the sides to loosen it since you will have pressure on the plastic hooks inside. The cable that goes into the Touch has two plastic right 90 degree 1/8 inch hooks on the right and left ends of the connector. The wires inside are tiny and easily broken if the connector comes apart. A dab of silicon is the only thing that prevents these hooks from coming undone. I bought 3 non-Apple charge/sync cables on Ebay. I was not going to pay Apple 30 for a crappy cable. This is the only weakness I see.
Music sync was awesome and a no brainer. Just plug it in. There are so many apps for free or .99 cents. I have a Blackberry and Apple is blowing everyone away. I have Soundhound for telling me what a song is that I am listening to on the radio. Awesome. Just search on Google for the best apps and then push the App Store on the Touch.(must have itunes on Windows or Mac first with an account on the store). Downloads are quick.
I am impressed with these apps. Quick list of some I downloaded
Facebook,Mint.com,Google Earth,Netflix,IMDB,Springpad,Amazon,The Weather Channel,Whitepages,Mapquest,Fandango,Pandora,LoseIt,Ebay,Wikipedia,Camera+,Tune-In Radio,Pack and Go,WedMD,Google,wifi Finder,Milpon,Words Free,Mirror,USA Today,GasBuddy,Skype,Mirror. I really like Camera+ app. This camera takes awesome photos. How many times does your camera sit in a drawer?
Get the 64GB touch. No contract. Lots of Space. Great music listening. I had two other ipods(a classic and a Nano) before. This makes EVERYTHING ELSE obsolete. It is a computer in your pocket. Enjoy the apps. The wifi finder app shows you where Wifi signals are. It is LIFE CHANGING. If only Apple had better cables. Have a great day!Read full review

Body: Aside from moving the sleep button to the right and making the back of the device slimmer and more flat, not much has changed. Yes, the chrome back is still there erg! It was so pretty for the first 30 seconds.
Ram: The Ram on the iPod Touch is only 256 MB, so do not believe the talk of 512 MB, it is simply not true.
Wireless: Fully supports A/B/G/N
Vibration: There is no vibration, so do not expect that.
Multitasking: Works real well and very smooth transition
Display: While the display on the iPod is not IPS like the iPhone do not think it suffers in anyway. This display is so beautiful and crisp to look at. I cannot even distinguish the pixels, and text on a website is like you are reading out of a book, it's so refreshing. I played a digital copy of "UP" on here and the colors practically jump off the screen, very nice. Apple's icons are so much more vivid and sharp, while 3rd party developer icons who have yet to make an upgrade for the new displays shows what a step up this new screen has to offer.
Speaker: I am not sure of the quality of the speaker on the 3G iPod Touch, but on my 2G iPod Touch it was very tinny and I only used it for game sound. Here on the 4G there is a new spot on the bottom left for the speaker and it has risen in clarity. Music is very listenable and clear, however nothing replaces a good set of earbuds, but when you're in a jam, you won't be gritting your teeth with this speaker.
Processor: The new Apple processor is a sure win for this device. Everything loads very fast and switching from one screen to another is very swift and smooth. Crash Bandicoot finally has a nice framerate to play with on this iPod and for once I did not regret buying that game.
Front Camera: This is the camera that is primarily used for Facetime. It's resolution is at 640 X 480. After taking a few pictures with it, you will notice how it is really not for taking stills, but works fine for videochatting (which I have not tried, but did run some video tests with it). Obviously Facetime will work better in well lit areas, but then again, doesn't any camera?
Rear Camera: Again stills are just so so. What really bugs me is when you go to take a picture, you see how crisp the preview is, then you take the picture and you can see it blur. The tap to focus works nice for adjusting exposure and well lit photos look very decent on the display. It's when you upload them to your computer when you notice how not so decent they actually are. While this may be a negative for many people, if you are like me, you want to just upload photos with this device to FaceBook and capture funny moments with the video camera. If I want to take a really awesome picture, I'll pull out my DSLR, but for me this iPod's capabilities are more than adequate for my quick shooting of certain events. The video captures quite nicely, while not superb like an actual HD camcorder does enough for me for again, capturing fun moments. Don't worry, you don't cringe while watching the video, it's more than adequate and produces vibrant colors and a fast framerate. Some may complain on this, and believe me those reviews will be here shortly, but then again why not buy an HD Camcorder that is made for HD content? (I'm not ignorant to HD quality either, I'm a huge fan of it. I run a 3D 65'' 1080p display with Blu-ray and Dolby Tru-HD decoding surround sound system)
Microphone: Testing out Skype my friend told me I was coming in loud and clearRead full review

Can't put it down!
I voted excellant because I truly love this product, it is the ultimate kids gift. Trust me, I have a 17, 14, 12 & 9yr old that would agree. With the abilitity to acces the internet and your favorite media sites, upload your and watch your favorite movies, download tons of games, taking and storing pictures/ videos , & carrying around your favorite music, how can this item not beat out Nintendo DS?? The downside, you can't get internet everywhere so certain apps don't work & you can't zoom in or out when taking pictures or video recording. BUT the upside is that it has wifi so you can find internet easy enough just about everywhere you go and taking out your IPOD to snap or record those unforgettable moments are priceless. With only these two minor "defects" you can see that the good out way the bad. Like I said, the ultimate gift for any kid!Read full review

Everything the iPhone is without the Phone and Contract
This is without a doubt the best iPod Touch to date. The new screen is so sharp you can read the smallest print on the screen and your pictures and videos look amazing. The storage is incredible and Apple's genius interface makes doing even seemingly complex tasks effortless.
Really any of the 4th Generation Models is a great buy, but the 64GB lets you take things to another level in terms of your pictures and videos
If you've wanted to get an iPhone 4, but don't want the hassle of the Cell Phone Plan you have to buy with it and the data plans you'll need to get the most out of it then this iPod Touch is the next best thing you can get!!
