The real value of the iPod Touch is not that it plays MP3s or videos; it's
that it is a handheld computer with all the many uses that a computer can
be put to.  It's much more appropriate to compare it to a netbook than it
is to those PMPs.

The Nokia N800/N810 line is much closer in features to the Touch.
