Last year, when Woot! had 2nd and 3rd gen iPod Touches, I picked up a 16GB (it matched the capacity of my iPad) and found it to be too little to store everything I wanted on it. So I picked up the 32GB when it rolled around and passed the 16GB down to my kids. The choice has been a good one.
The big difference is that I don't keep podcasts or music on the iPad, nor the unit for the kids, so 16GB is fine (although I do have to manage the videos a bit); the 32GB means I don't constantly "fiddle" with the content on the touch, which has a larger cross-section of my digital media because it is so portable.

Verizon wont let you do it while on a call, if both the call and the data connection are over the air.
But I use wifi for my Verizon Droid, and can talk while browsing no problem.
So here's a Q for you - I have an HTC Eris, Android OS, on Verizon .... if you are on a call can you turn the wifi on in the middle of the call to surf the net and, say, look something up? Or would that disconnect you? (I don't have mine set to auto wifi since mine is rooted and that setting doesn't play well w/sending picture text messages anymore - it used to switch back to 3G, send pic msg and then go back to wifi) so I just keep 3G on all the time).
I am better than everybody else!

I actually just got myself a new one of these and so far I'm very happy with it but I'm using it strictly as a toy. I don't have any gen 3 around to compare to but compared to a few gen 2 ones around the office the Retina display looks a lot sharper and brighter. I've been having fun playing with the apps and in some rare instances so far it has been nice having a wifi enabled device without having to get out my laptop. The price doesn't thrill me but I can recommend the product! I haven't had a chance to play with Facetime yet but it seems interesting but sort of a gimmick. These will also likely continue to come down as they are now talking about the iPhone 5 being a mobile hotspot. Not sure if the Touch 5 will duplicate that or not since its not on a phone network but its something to consider.
The VERY first thing I did was to get screen protectors and a case. The screen seems reasonably scratch resistant but the back is the same buffed silver finish that gets scratched if you look at it funny.

Is Facetime only from Mac to Mac?
Facetime works pretty well. I have it on my Mac and chat with my daughter using her iPhone. It's a lot easier to set up than Skype for video calling.
At the moment only the iPhone, this model of the iPod Touch, and MacOS run Facetime. I don't know if Apple will ever come out with Facetime for Windows.
