They'd better introduce another iPhone - my V1's dying, fast. Hopefully it'll be something bigger and better, however, so that I'll have reason to buy it..
But, if you are getting an iPhone for a child, and don't want to pay the $30 for data, such the iPod phone makes sense. Especially, if your child is not likely to go to a WiFi hotspot (without supervision), and you want to retain parental control over internet access.no data would be too much of a backwards step. it seems ancient to not receive email in your pocket all day long.
