Why the iPod Touch is Different

Ian Fogg highlight’s three key ways the iPod touch is differen from the iPhone:

“But the Touch is, of course, different. (Apple still thinks that way – sorry!). From my tests with the Touch, the main omissions are:

1. Email software (although webmail should work in the Safari browser).

2. Contacts editing. Yes, the iPod has a very iPhone-like contacts application, but users can’t edit entries. But both Contacts and Calendar items do still sync down from iTunes…

3. Maps.”

That second one is probably the thing which steers me away from getting a touch immediately. I like to be able to edit contacts anywhere, even though it’s a feature which I use rarely.
