Honestly, does anyone seriously watch video, like movies and tv shows on their iTouch? Really?? You could look at this from the other angle: This is what the iTouch SHOULD have been all along. But from that perspective, I think it's pricey.
We will have to see how inventive developers get with the apps. Like the iPhone, without the apps it is just another smart phone with an iPod built in. Fancy, but not revolutionary. But WITH the apps it becomes an order of magnitude cooler. Same thing with the iPad methinks. If developers can really get innovative with the multitouch gestures, I think we will see some amazing apps in 6 months.
The only other thing I can think of that makes me hesitate, is how do I get things in and out of it? Looks so far like it will only sync via your computer. That is going to be a BIG bummer, as anyone with an Apple laptop is not going to need one of these, and as Steve said at the beginning of the keynote, they sell considerably more laptops that desktops now.
But if the touch screen interface really takes off, I think we will see a full blown laptop with a touch screen interface within 2 years.
