I'm not sure mine is insanely large, it would just fit on a 160Gb Classic. Thing is, I don't want it all on my iPod, I have enough trouble in iTunes deciding what I'm in the mood for, and there's some complete rubbish in there I'll probably never listen to again
My Touch is my mobile email client, internet tablet, etc. as well as my music player. I couldn't go back to a "just music" player now.

The Shuffle, Nano and Touch all have VoiceOver, which will read menu items etc. to you. I've just played with it on my Touch, and I think it would work better with the click wheel or something to step through menu items, but you can use it without looking at the screen once you're used to it.

If they are available where you are, try a MiFi-style mobile router. It creates a WiFi hotspot wherever there is mobile phone data coverage. It's what I use with my Touch in the UK, and works very well. It works with anything that has WiFi, and I can upgrade to the latest and greatest gadget without getting tied to a new cellular contract.
