The iPod touch is a great device, However it has an inferior sound quality. Look at it this way, the iPod Touch is for you if you want apps and web browsing. The Cowon S9 is for you if you want a media player that works great and sounds awesome.

You can't, But decide what you want to do more. Do you want a rich media expierence or apps and games to play around with on the go.

Well then get a S9 if you don't want apps.

Also decide on how important very good sound quality is to you. The S9 will let you play uncompressed FLAC (vs. Apple Lossless) files and it does sound better with compressed files if you use good headphones, but walking around with ear buds I can't really tell the difference.

Also the iTouch can play AAC files which is a strange oversight in the S9.

Don't forget you have WAY more customising ability with the S9. Add Claw's UCI (or any other) and *romance pants explosion!* you can do A SHIT LOAD more with the device, customise it EXACTLY how you want it to operate...

Doesn't jailbreaking an iPod give you more customizing abilities?

Really? I'd love the chance to compare the two, with my own files. So if anyone would like to send a Touch and an S9 my way, I'll be happy to do so. What, you want them back afterwards? Sorry, that's a no-go.....I might send back whichever I like least though

Dude, first you were too lazy to do a forum search, now you want justification for a touch purchase,.............. go buy a touch and be done w/it!!!!! Stop making excuses, and trying to whine - apple's waiting!!!!
