The official CNET review for Apple's iPod Touch is now live, joining the slide show we posted on Friday. I have to admit, this was a tough product to review. It's easy to get hung up on what the iPod Touch isn't (it's not an iPhone, and it's not a high-capacity PVP), and lose your objectivity on what the iPod Touch really is: a cool, innovative gadget.

After all, if you could put the iPhone genie back in the bottle and pretend it never existed, wouldn't a product like the iPod Touch seem breathtaking? In my opinion, it's a case of Apple being it's own worst enemy.

What do you guys think? Is the Touch's limited capacity a deal-breaker, or is there more to the iPod Touch than just the size of its memory?
