When the iPod Touch and new iPhone were launched the biggest complaint was that the move to solid state data storage had drastically reduced the capacity of these devices. The old iPod Classic with mini hard drive goes up to 160GB and holds up to 40,000 songs. In contrast the biggest iPod Touch holds 32GB or 7,000 songs.

In reality, most people find 4-8GB more than adequate, so it's not such a big deal unless you want to carry yiour entire DVD collection on it! To put it in perspective, 8GB devices hold about 2,000 songs; at say 3 minutes per song that's 100 hours of music!
