    I got iPod 8G and Dingoo A320 and i say:
    - iPod Touch, but dig up the extra for a 32Gb model (don't think there's a 16gb 3G touch model)

    Since i jailbroke my iPod 8Gb is to less for video/music and apps.
    I also spend since then $50 in the store (i never would have spend that much if i didn't jailbreak it)
    Cause whatever i buy i know i will use cause i could tested it descent.

    EDIT: But if that's not an option, go for the iPod 8G, you have more fun and use from it then a Dingoo

    The Dingoo is only good if you're really into emulation. A jailbroken ipod certainly has more current stuff.

    if you can get either one (if its offered to you) i'd go for the ipod, the thing being much more valuable and all [​IMG]

    if you have to pay for it, i'd go for a dingoo... great value, IMO

    Go for the iPod.

    It can emulate almost everything the dingoo can anyway.

    I don't think the Dingoo is a great value at all. It as crappy sound, uses a minisd, it's under powered CPS2, SNES, GBA, Quake work like crap. The only emulators that work well are stuff like Atari 2600. It's a pain to add new games and emulators to the Dingux menu. I got my Wiz for $120 and it's totally worth the extra I payed. I'd go for the iPod touch and day of the week.

    so you actually got both a wiz and a dingoo?
    or are you basing your criticism on stuff you've read? [​IMG]
    (mind you, I dont own a dingoo either so who am I to talk?)
    Pliskron suggested the GP2X Wiz, maybe thats something to look into!

    I don't think the Dingoo is that bad. The GBA emulator on the native firmware actually works great, and the SNES one works fine for me as well. The GB/GBC emulator is also fantastic, in both native firmware or Dingux. And in Dingux, there's all kinds of games and ports etc. that work really well. It's certainly much, much more capable than just an atari 2600 emulator.

    As for the original question, I've had an iPod touch, and have a Dingoo, and with those two options I'd still suggest going for the Touch. It's got more going for it, more support, and is less DIY as far as getting things up and going to one's own liking. Although personally I prefer the Dingoo - for gaming that is. Could never get the hang of gaming on the iPod Touch, without any buttons. I like buttons. [​IMG]

    Cheers!

    I suggest Ipod touch, it can emulate most (or all things) that a dingoo can, I don't own a dingoo so I don't know about speed but Ipod touch can emulate N64 at full speed with the right frame skip.

    I suggest Ipod touch

    Just to clarify, i'll be getting money for my birthday, so I would have to pay for the dingoo or the ipod. With that in mind, would it still be worth it to get the ipod?

    Yes, well, Nintendo actually admits it's a new model, not a whole new portable...
    On the other hand, Apple starts selling a huge blown-up-like-a-balloon-type IPod touch that can't even make calls and has a maximum disk space of 128 GB and sells it for $700 and up...

    128GB is enough, I can't fill my 32GB Ipod touch up I have almost 80 apps and only 3GB is used

    Why would you WANT to make a call from an Ipad?

    I'm not an apple fanboy, but I don't understand why people say they are evil.

    + a 50" TV is a big blown up fancy 42" TV
