I also have a curve and ipod touch as well. And I third what JackG058 said. The ipod touch is a nice device for viewing videos and web browsing (in a wifi zone) on the road to kill time. I don't use it often enough as a serious device for work productivity, though I have tried. Do I think this combo would get rid of the "awww" for the iphone? No. Once your mind is made up, nothing is going to change it, other than experience, and experience is a cruel but effective teacher. That said, I like the ipod touch and having used it, it doesn't make me want to "upgrade" to an iphone.
