This iTouch big competition will hit Western Europe, China and US starting late October, priced €249 ($315) for the 16GB model.
We’re a bit into Philips, I guess the x-factor is the noise-isolating earphones that will come with GoGear compared to tin cans-sounding iPod earphones, ooh, anyways, we’d like to check and post a review of this device, so Philips could you ship this thing to us?
