iPod Touch: Vermont's iPhone?
The iPod Touch sounds almost like Apple's direct answer to Vermont's AT&T absence. The iPod Touch has nearly all the features of Apple's iPhone, minus the phone itself (and Google Earth?) but since it has the Safari Web Browser you can use any of the various VOIP web pages that have been created for the iPhone. Think of it as a Skype phone when connected to a WiFi network.
Sounds pretty cool doesn't?
I already have a fairly new 30GB Video iPod and I'm still a little tempted to run out and buy the iPod Touch right now just for the web browser and wifi as it'll be much more convenient than lugging my MacBook everywhere. I really don't need anything but the web browser most of the time anyway.
I'm going to try to hold down my temptations at least for a few more weeks to see if the much rumored Google Phone materializes. I have a nagging feeling if I jump now Google will announce its phone and it will almost certainly be a less expensive device. Nearly all the rumors also make it sound like it was designed from the ground up for this exact purpose.
What do you think?

I think you and I thought alike on this one. My problem is not the Google phone tho, because cell phone service in the NEK is really bad/non-existent and I really don't want a phone. My problem with the new iPod is the size and I'm going to wait until it's bigger. But you're right: this is exactly what I wanted (except for size).
