The v2.0 added the ability for iCal support for multiple calendars. This is huge and worth the $10 upgrade.
The Remote app is super cool. I can imagine it being totally awesome if you had an Apple TV.
The display is really bright and easy to look at.
The feel of the unit is really solid. The only part of the unit that doesn't feel solid is the power off button on the top.
I've held the latest version and it is easier to hold. The original iPod Touch had squared off edges which are sharp on your fingers. The volume control and external speaker on the new one would be two really nice features to have.
I wish the battery life was better.
I upgraded to v2.2 over the weekend and Safari hasn't crashed yet.
Lack of a To Do list in my opinion is a huge problem. I've tried every free 3rd party ToDo list and they all simply suck. I hope Apple makes one that syncs with the ToDos in iCal.
I wish the iPod Touch could sync with my Mac without plugging in the cable, running iTunes and pressing the sync button. But they probably don't want to run out of batteries in the middle of a sync.
