After agonising for about 2 ours in the SoHo Apple store in NY, I finally got a new iPOD. I chose the iPOD Classic.

I'm going to write a review comparing it to my 4 year old 3G iPOD, i'll post it on this site if anyone cares.

I very nearly got the touch, but in the end battery life, capacity and sanity got the better of me and I got the 80gig black classic.

Well I'll put my 2¢ in, since I just picked up an 80g classic (to replace my poor 40g 4G non-photo iPod that sat overnight on top of my car -- oddly enough, the iPod's click wheel really doesn't like all that dew).

While I'm too pooped to write a proper review, I will say that it is much slower than my old iPod. The old one was soooo responsive--the menus moved when I wanted them, and stopped when I stopped. The new interface sometimes takes a half-second or so to respond, and it's a bit frustrating to be honest. However, the split-screen menu is pretty slick looking. When on the main menu, you see album art randomly scrolling around on the side of the menu. When on submenus, you see information related to the item you're hovering over (number of podcasts when you hover over the podcast item, number of TV shows, free space when hovering over settings).

In any case, I think I'll get used to the slower response. I've got a crappy Insignia 4GB flash player (which I use exclusively for Rhapsody-To-Go) that has the most irritating interface I've ever seen. Not only is it clunky, but when I stop moving the wheel, it keeps on going. The iPod is infinitely more useable than that piece of suckiness...

That was actually a problem with the first generation iPods with video (i.e. 5G iPod) but it was ironed out with the first firmware update that quickly followed launch. So judging by experience, you should be chugging along at full speed in no time.

That was my thought as well when I noticed that I'm currently using v1.0 of the firmware. My hope was that they rushed these out to meet last week's deadline, and that 1.1 will be out in the next few weeks. Thanks for confirming my hope

I'm looking at getting an 80Gb classic, so I'd be interested in a review too.

I was told I could have one today by the sales person, but $399 for the 16 gig just wasn't going to fly.

Gizmodo is saying the iPod Touch has crippled the calendar app, saying you can't add an event.

I'm interested in a review, I ordered a nano and a classic on Thursday and should get them tomorrow.

I was going to get the touch but will wait for next up date of the touch to see if they increase the memory

No that was Saturday and by 'today' I meant 'today, Monday', so I assume they were expecting another shipment this week.

The 'gotta have one now' effect definately played a part, but all things being equal I'm glad I got the classic.
