Apple iPod touch Features

  • Sleek Design: At only 7.2mm thin, this is the thinnest iPod touch yet. The glass face and stainless steel back provide a clean look and excellent durability for a device that's equally at home in your hand or in your pocket
  • Retina Display: The iPod touch features the same stunning 3.5" Retina Display as the iPhone 4. It has 4 times the pixel count of the previous iPod touch - so many that the human eye can't distinguish individual pixels. This makes for ultra-sharp graphics, images and text
  • Multi-Touch Control: The Multi-Touch display lets you easily access your content, change the aspect ratio, or control media playback with the touch of a finger. Scroll through screens slowly by dragging your finger or flick it across the screen to cover more ground
  • A4 Processor: The iPod touch uses the same A4 processor that's found in the iPhone 4 and iPad. This chip is remarkably powerful yet power-efficient so it can perform complex functions like multitasking and video editing, while simultaneously maximizing battery life

  • Front and Rear Cameras: Cameras are found on both the face and the rear of the iPod touch. The front camera records 640 x 480 VGA-quality photos and video at 30fps, while the rear camera records HD 720p video at 30fps and captures still photos at 960 x 720 (0.7 megapixels)
  • FaceTime: Apple's FaceTime technology lets you video chat with your friends and loved ones in real-time over WiFi thanks to the integrated cameras. You can even switch back and forth between the 2 cameras during a chat so your chat partner can see you or what you're looking at

  • Game Center: Apple's Game Center, first introduced in iOS 4, allows you to rank your game scores and compare achievements against your friends. You can also challenge your friends (or automatically chosen strangers) in multiplayer games

Best portable player


from Nigeria  -  Audiophile

Had IPod touch4 a year ego. It is really excellent player, and with earphones like Weston 3 gives you a great listening pleasure. All about it is fine but two tings. First, Bluetooth is not actually a real Bluetooth since you can not transfer your pix or files or any other staff from or to it. King of useless in this era of communications and fast transfers. Second, it has a design error, edge of the screen is to exposed and most of drops or falls will cause your IPod to crack or brake the screen. It happened to me twice. Any how, I got a new one a month ago, excellent price for 64 GB and not much need apart of listening to my music. Bottom line, it is great, the best, MP3 or portable player, with few doll's for edge protection and good earphones it is a clear winner.
