A new line of iPods were announced and if I knew someone who bought an iPhone, I’d have a grand day making fun of the dumbass. But I still won’t buy an iPhone. It’s the iPod touch, an iPhone without the phone, that’s got me interested.
I want a small Internet device that I can bring around with me and the iPod touch sounds like a good candidate. But since I’m a Linux fanboy, I have to be impartial and say that the N800 is what I’m looking for.
Both devices are in the same price range. I still can’t decide which is better because each device has its own set of cool features.
The iPod touch has 16GB of storage, a sleek UI and multi-touch. But third party apps are very limited and Linux is not officially supported.
The N800 has a huge community support (plus a head start), it runs Linux and I can play openTTD on it. But I still have to buy two 8GB SD cards to get the same amount of storage that the iPod touch offers.
There’s also a major hold up on the N800: It’s not sold locally. It’s available at Amazon though. I’m pretty sure that the iPod touch will reach our islands before the N800 does.
Take a deep breath and think about it. Which one would you choose?
Apple diehards will only be tolerated at a certain extent. Don’t push it!
