I keep seeing endless items mentioning the iPod Touch and the iPhone in the same breath. And that’s fair enough. But comments like this from Gizmodo, quite typical, just make me want to forcefully remind people that the iPhone is not officially available in most parts of the world.
The iPod touch, Apple’s gimped iPhone that’s just for music, sounds fantastic for people who want all of the iPhone’s music and video features and none of its calling ones.
[I’m guessing here that ‘gimped’ means ‘crippled’.]
Yes, I do want those calling features. But, while I’d love to have an iPhone, this minute, here in New Zealand, it’s just not going to happen. In fact, I imagine it’ll be quite a while before all the telephony issues are sorted out. Meanwhile, my order’s in for the iPod Touch. I should have it in the first week of October — it’s due to ship 28 September.
