    Hi,

    Sorry I don't have a lot of time to research this. My son in college wants a new iPod Touch for Xmas. What Android phone can you suggest with the same functionality, that eventually he could use on MetroPCS?

    We're on TMobile now, stuck in contracts for a while. He's already got a phone, so he would just use it to replace his worn-out iPod Touch for now.

    Apps he runs: email, browse, Facebook, text, iTunes. and I guess some iTouch games but think he'd be happy to try Android games. I think he has an extensive iTunes library.

    I guess an iTouch is about $200, so that price max.

    Thanks for advice!

    I would suggest (since its only being used for apps and music) buying a Samsung Galaxy Player. Everything you can do on an Android phone you can do on this except make calls and or text like a phone, but Im sure theres apps for wifi texting and calling

    Amazon actually has their's on sale.

    Galaxy Player 5 inch $209+ free shipping

    Galaxy Player 4 inch $199+free shipping

    If you're just replace the iPod Touch and don't really need the "phone" part you should consider the Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0. Its pretty much Samsung/Android's answer to the iPod touch.

    He'll eventually need the phone part when we switch to MetroPCS.

    I would wait til everyone is ready to switch. They have "family" deals all the time.

    But personally I have an LG Esteem. Awesome phone. :D
