So far, this is what the reviews are saying:"</em><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1284002381.usr17748.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><h6>Quick reviews of the new iPod Touch, the iPod Nano and the iPod Shuffle express a variety of opinions on the latest iPod generation, and they're mostly very positive, with a couple negatives thrown in. From the reviews:</h6><ul><li>The iPod Touch: not a replacement for a camera or videocam; the camera is not as good as the iPhone's camera; the speakers are lousy; the screen is less bright.</li><li>The iPod Nano: feels cheap, like an iPod clone; volume buttons are small and hard to operate; no more watching video, and no more camera.</li><li>The iPod Shuffle: using the clip, sometimes the controls (track back skip) are hit by mistake; audio a bit flat.</li></ul><h6>Overall, more positives than negatives, so it looks like Apple has another generation of winners. Also, the Nano displays a a digital representation of an analog watch, so there is already a clamor for a watchband for using the Nano as a watch replacement. </h6><p> </p>
