The only advantage I see from iPod touch is the headstart it got with the appstore, and probably battery life. iPod touch apps are indeed awesome, but archos seems to win in every other category. More audio formats, video formats, hd video output (720p), subtitle support (ssa, srt, etc.), GPS, expandable memory, bluetooth, FM receiver and transmitter, dvr capabilities, bigger screen...It was love at first sight for me.
