    Differences between Ipod Touch and Iphone

    Right I know the obvious difference is the Ipod Touch doesn't have the phone part but are there many more differences??
    Basically I want the apps and games and music stuff but don't want it as an actual phone, so would the ipod touch be ok?
    Rep for all help!

    I have a Touch and the reason I didn't get an iPhone when I upgraded my phone a couple of months ago was because they are pretty much the same (other than the 2 obvious differences already pointed out)

    No, 3g in this case means "third generation"

    No in this case it stands for 3rd generation.

    certainly HAS bluetooth-obviously it wont run gps/compass apps and the like but pretty much everything else and clearly you need to be in a wifi zone to use certain apps(sky sports and the like) but if you just want games and music and video its a perfectly acceptable option to get a touch.

    no 3g or gsm on the ipod touch! 3g is a phone thing.

    vibeone - choosing to ignore the stalkers who saw my post before it was edited from the early first draft (ask thesaint about his idea to stop these things happening!)


    also no compass in the ipod touch.

    Ha! We posted almost the exact same thing at the exact same time!

    The phone uses the mobile phone web service for some apps, if you have a touch some apps will not work as they require internet (unless you are at a wifi spot) eg, Shazam uses internet to match songs etc. and the soccer scores apps require internet so unless you are at a wifi spot it would be usless. Theres loads of other apps too.

    ones an mp3 player the other ones a brick ie massive phone

    Well you carry both your mp3 player and your phone around with you and i will just carry my "brick" around with me (thats only slightly bigger than the ipod touch).

    I only want it for some apps just something to mess around on, my OH has the iphone and i was going to get one but its a bit bit for me so just going to get a touch to mess around with at home while OH writes apps for me lol

    i would just get an 8gb touch if its just for a mess around i think both are hugely over rated to be honest, i used my ipod touch the same as i used my ipod to listen to music thats it

    don't know what it is about apple and ipods, think they must put subliminal messages on ipods that gets owners very defensive about any bad word said against the ipods

    but each to their own gd luck buddy

    but you have to admit if nokia came up with a phone the size of an iphone before apple did, it would have been ridiculed and a flop

    Yes thats right.

    But I'd also defend the Nexus if you said something utterly stupid about that as well.

    Or... a mars bar.... sofa.... anything really.

    I think you'll find PDA phone's existed before the iPhone Nokia didn't bother, HTC did, branded as all sorts, but the original popular PDA Handset was probably the o2 XDA.

    (added after you edited)


    I had a few PDA phones, and the main drawback was awful screens and stylus use.

    Whether you like the iPhone or not, it has redefined the market, and its userbase is massive. Comments like lemmings or fanboyism are just daft. Its a quality product. If it wasn't - honestly, people wouldn't use it.

    Since you are moving the argument onto something else, we'll just say I won the iPhone argument part
