Pros Great, polished apps. Does probably at leas 75% of what an average computer user would do on a computer, on a device about the size of a computer mouse.
Clean lines, great screen, easy to use - no real learning curve. With iOS5 you don't even a computer
Cons Suppose they could have put in the same dual core A5 chip as in the iPad and iPhone 4S.
Increased camera resolution - even a 1-2MP camera on the rear would be better - cheap $20 camera phones have more resolution.
Less easily scratched back - but then aga
Summary More than an MP3 or video player it's a pocket computer in the way PalmOS and PocketPC could only dream of back in the day (and I had both!) Keep in mind the specs on this little gem of a computer beat out the specs on the computers (Which took up entire rooms) that sent the Apollo astronauts to the moon on a device thiner than a deck of cards.
Perfect for those who want a smart phone without paying for an expensive data plan or just don't make enough calls to justify paying almost $80 a month.
Pros App support, slim, app support, iOS 5.0 support
Cons Low resolution camera, cpu/gpu is dated and can get bogged down
Summary Can't believe that Apple didn't make any hardware upgrades to the iPod Touch! This product has such huge potential and the 2 upgrades that it needed (faster cpu/gpu and better camera) didn't materialize. So, what message is Apple sending ... is this the end of the iPod Touch line of products??????
Cons 1. Which it had a bit more storage space.
2 A little lighter and fragile looking than its predecessors.
Summary Everyone is always saying that the Apple iPad is a larger version of the Apple iPod Touch, but this mini pocket MP3/Mini Computer does everything except for have its own mobile data plan, and if it did it would be called an "iPhone".It's been a few months since I purchased my iPod Touch 64gb and my excitement has waned since due to the battery life. And since the IOS 5 update, my iPod Touch shuts off on its own. Other than that MAJOR issue, my music library is fits perfectly here and once the bugs are fixed, I'll go back to loving iPod Touch completely.
Apple always feels as if they need to expound and never rest on their laurels but asides for making an iPod Touch with more storage space and a larger viewing screen, this concept is brilliant. I seen nothing wrong with the camera shots. If people want professional looking photos, buy a real camera.

Updated on Mar 16, 2012Nearly Seven months into my ownership of this device, my love for the latest iPod Touch, the love affair has waned considerably. First of all the battery life for this device is extremely weak and the camera, very poor. I got this device due to my enormous music collection, but continuous usage on this device can drain your battery. And like many her lately have been complaining about the machine shutting down on them I am glad to a sense it was just me experiencing these weird problems but going through Apple's troubleshooting boards, this device has been ill designed for software it uses. I've reset this machine twice, and it seemed to make matters worse. Until they get it right, this might be my last iPod Touch purchase. And with all the money I've shelled out to Apple (Apple iPod 3rd and 5th Gens, Apple iPod Touch 2 and latest Gen, Apple iPad 2 and the Apple iPhone 4S and of all these Apple devices, this the only device that I have been truly been disappointed in.
Pros Where to start? Feels good in your hand. User interface is awesome. Features make this WAY more than an MP3 player - much more of a mini-computer complete with wi-fi and all of the Apple-icious perks therein. Apps are generally spectacular - FaceTime, Saf
Cons Hard to think of cons. Uhh...doesn't do your laundry and change the oil on your car??
No, seriously - although I can't imagine why anybody would need more than 64gigs of storage - perhaps options for more storage? Photos and video still does not complete
Summary Hands down the best iPod yet. No other MP3 player is in the ballpark of this device. Usefulness of this little thing is almost endless. AND - iOS 5 will only make it better!!

Pros Screen, Camera, Speed, games
Summary This new iPod touch is a great addition to the apple family. The 64G 4th Generation iPod touch comes loaded with additional features in comparison to the older generations. This iPod is given a new look. It is very thin and boosts a Retina Display screen, which leads to great quality on the apps and video. Apple smartly equipped this machine with two cameras; on in the back and one on the front for face time. The cameras don't have great quality but still enhance the product. Another pro is that it is an apple device and has access to apple app store on iTunes where I easily download many apps. A problem with this iPod is that it is not very durable because of the delicate parts and thin design. Apple makes this product easy to use and especially great for connecting to iTunes. Apple does not however include a wall socket charger for the iPod, so unless you bring your computer everywhere you'll need to buy one. This would be the best choice in comparison to other products because of all the features and it's an apple product. I've had my 64G Tough for about 2 months and have experience no major problems. I would recommend this product who likes music and the ability for games in one pack. Its about 400$.
