Pros Innovative interface, iOS 4, terrific browser. Immense app store, stunning display. Good battery life.
Cons Lack of camera, Fragile screen, Back gets dirty from finger prints.
Summary Overall it's by far #1 for a mp3 music player! Although if your just looking for strictly music. The iPod nano and shuffle would be the better choice. But for music + browser, apps, videos entertainment and much more, definitely the iPod touch! Regarding the space on the iPod, the 8 GB is for light amounts of music apps etc. I f your looking to put many movies and an immense amount of songs and apps, go with the 32 and 64 GB model.
"Best Gadget Ever!!"on by krishenp
Pros Great Portable Media Player, Pocket Computer, Portable handheld gaming device, price, App store, features, built-in apps, great web browser, email support, Great UI, iOS4 (folders, better mail)
Cons Battery drains quickly when you're using Wi-Fi and playing games
Summary The iPod touch is the Best Gadget Ever!! I got the 8 GB version. I upgraded from my Samsung P2 that I bought two years earlier.
The iPod touch is a great device that is packed with features. It is a great portable media player, pocket computer, and gaming device. Browsing the web is a breeze and it is very useful to check your email and Facebook account. Typing using its on-screen keyboard is far easier than plastic QWERTY keyboards. In fact, I am typing this entire review on my iPod! The iPod touch is so easy to use and so anyone can just pick it up and use it and know how to use it just a few minutes.
The App store makes the iPod touch have endless capabilities. It is very useful to have a dictionary, flashlight, a weather checker, calendar, address book, notepad, calculator, a unit converter, and an internet radio tuner always in my pocket.
I can even control my home computer wherever there is wi-fi using a free app called Teamviewer. All I have to do install the program on my PC and install the app on my iPod. Another useful app is ?Remote? which you can use to control iTunes.
In addition the newest software update, iOS4, adds a lot of improvements.
In my opinion there is no reason to buy any other MP3 player or portable media player. Other touch screen competitors may have better sound quality or file format support but none of them have an App store or the great interface the iPod touch has. They don't have anywhere near the number of features.
At the iPod touch's price you can't find anything else that has more features. Unlike the iPhone, the iPod touch's competitors are far behind.
Pros can download apps, play music, watch video/movies, works like a PDA with more bells and whistles.
Cons cannot access internet as well with OS4 as you could previously, almost all apps crash at least once, erases data when having device errors, no camera, poor audio on built in speaker
Summary I would only give up my iTouch for an iPhone. I take my touch everywhere. When I am stuck in line, or on my lunch, or even just plain bored in general my touch saves my sanity.
I would like to see them improve the built in speaker so that it will play a bit louder, and possibly even a camera would be nice.
Pros I would write them all but they won't fit in the box!
Cons no flash so your limited to html5
can not install 3rd party apps unless you jailbreak...
Summary an excellent device from an excellent company that will live for decades.
Pros Accelerometer, Touch Screen, Slim Design, Quick Internet, Amounts of Storage (8GB, 32GB, and 64GB), iTunes/App Store on iPod Touch.
Cons LCD Screen, Battery Life, 16GB missing (I think 16GB was a good number. Why through in a 64GB?), Easy Scratch, no wireless-n, no 3G model like iPad, Camera.
Summary Apple just didn't put all of their effort into this. They have a bunch of great ideas for the iPhone 4 that they can apply to this. They are missing a camera, the Retina Display, the Engineered glass, the wireless N, the 3G (Maybe), the LED or the OLED, Everything. They really need to try harder. I thought that it might even be worth it if you got an iPhone 4 instead if you wanted an iPod Touch. The iPhone 4 is pretty much the same in slimness and has more complexity and a professional look on the inside and out.
