I'm posting this message from my spanking new iPod touch. Typing on the touch keyboard is a little slower then on a regular keyboard, but way faster than on any handheld device I ever owned. The glass screen seems very scratch restistant, in contrary with the back of the iPod. The back is made of the same shiny metal used on the other iPod models and is known for scratching even when just glimpsing at it. And now back to some handheld youtubing.
