Like others have said - it depends! I have an Android phone, a regular old iPod, and an 8gb iPod Touch and I use them all for different things.
I primarily use the Touch for apps and games, with some music. But by no means my entire iTunes library - that's on my old iPod with much more memory. I probably have 800 or so songs on my Touch which I can rotate as needed. I prefer not to put music on my phone as it really slows things down. So iPod for music, iTouch for some music, games, apps, phone for on the go connectivity, texts, calls, Facebook etc.
