Why the iPod touch is better than the iPad

The iPod touch is a very misunderstood mobile device. When many people talk about it, it’s usually in the context of playing music. But the iPod touch goes far beyond being just a music player though, it’s a pocket computer that can do virtually anything an iPhone or iPad can do (minus phone calls or cellular connections). I think that has more to do with the name ???iPod??? than anything else. Given the product’s illustrious history, it’s totally understandable that it has become synonymous with music.

But I’ve found that the iPod touch works better for me as a handheld computer than any of the iPad models available.
