iPod touch or PSP?

My tween daughter has advanced far beyond an iPod Shuffle knock off brand MP3 player and has advanced to wanting, “something that has a screen and if it played movies that’d be cool!”  She is a great gadget girl and has shown that she can care for electronics.  The dilemma comes in when you have…
