IPS allows for better viewing angles, so it would be great for games that use the accelerometer and gyro in the iPod touch. The iPhone 4 has an IPS panel too. As for the iPod nano screen, I have no idea what it has.

iPod nano is ugly, they remove the camera and other functionality and they are still overpriced. The iPod touch look good through.

Meh... Admittedly the Touch is nice and the camera is about time I guess, but it's so dam pricey. And if you already have a smartphone it's a bit pricey for an mp3 player. Unless you want it for games I guess, but seriously... are there any games for iPod that are more than casual time wasters? Is it really worth $230 for an 8GB iTouch, ouch.

And please, please PLEASE.. somebody stop all these effing companies and their Social Networking garbage. Like come on already... who the *uck cares? "Please follow me on iFaceBookTunesSpace where you can see that I listen to the same crap everyday on my 8GB iPod, because that's all that i could afford and games/apps take a lot of space so I only have 100 songs on it."
