Samsung Takes on iPod Touch, With Flair
In the swimming pool’s worth of ink that has been spilled on Apple over the years, not enough fuss has been made about the iPod Touch.
In essence, it’s an iPhone without the cellphone bill. It does almost everything the iPhone does – runs 600,000 apps, plays movies and music, displays e-books, takes pictures and videos, checks e-mail and Web sites – but without requiring you to sign your soul over to Verizon or AT&T. When you factor in the monthly fees, the two-year cost of an iPhone is at least $1,880.
