[access-uk] Re: Four apps for iPod Touch/iPhone to recommend

The iPod touch has no phone or real GPS functionality therefore making calls or 
navigation are not possible.  All other aspects are generally the same.

So, if I understand correctly, it doesn't have a phone at all (which I 
didn't expect) and you can use it on the net for listening but that's all. 
Maybe the last is not quite correct so please correct me if my understanding 
is not quite right.

Thanks.
