Thinner Design with Contoured Steel

2.1 Software Update


From an iPhone owner point of view, we were pretty dissapointed with the annoucmenets. But if you were thinking of being an iPod Touch owner before, then now is time to jump on. Finally getting built-in speakers as well as a Nike+ receiever it makes it definitly the BEST MP3 player to date. I am hoping that more details come out on what the iPhone 2.1 update has to offer (keeping fingers crossed for some sort of Nike+ support as well!)
