Walt Mossberg reviewed the iPod touch and notes that its battery life falls short of the other iPods.

He also describes the screen issue that has affected "a small number of" iPod touch screens, and notes that Apple is addressing it:

Anecdotal reports from the newest iPod touch buyers indicate that the problem may have been solved.
