Pros Fast processing , versatile and able to run the same games as the new Iphone 3GS, this Ipod touch brings the same stable and rock solid interface as the 2nd generation Ipod Touch. Newly updated earbuds with a voice and volume interface is a great.
Cons Not much of an update. The new firmware allows voice controls and faster speeds on newer App store games. Aging interface that we have seen since the Ipod touch first came on the scene. No camera as of yet and no Iphone-esk ear piece for Skype users
Summary A nice price drop , a very versatile and useful Ipod. Internet, texting, VOIP interface, updated headphone with controls and the same great Apple feeling. Even with a $199 price tag the competition is closing in with much higher capacities in memory over the 8GB mark the Ipod Touch has and a ever evolving Ipod-esk interface. Lets hope The 4th generation Ipod Touch brings even more to the table with an even smaller price tag. "Keep your fingers crossed"
Pros Faster Processor (32GB & 64 GB), increased capacity, Open GL
Cons Microphone not on the phone, No camera
Summary This was a lame update for the iPod Touch. I would not classify this as a 3rd generation device. It is more like a 2.1. I expected more from Apple and they failed to deliver. Hopefully, they will add a camera before Christmas.
Also, I don't know what Steve Jobs is thinking comparing this device to the Sony PSP or Nintendo DS. I can't see gaming as the future of this device.
Pros Fast processor with Wi-Fi, game play is phenomenal, hair touch sensitive screen. Amazing graphics. Can make calls on the ipod touch, and the interface is unbelievable. I would rather live without my cell phone than live without one of these!
Cons 8GB touch is 50% slower than 32GB, the voice control is inaccurate with huge room for improvement for adv. commands. If you're gonna buy an ipod touch buy a 32GB or 64GB I promise it's worth every penny.
Summary -the easy the use icons for programs
-games are simple, easy, and addictive.
-AMAZING battery life (3D games drain it fast)
-the utilities make it PDA-like
-fun user interface and i actually prefer using the internet on my touch rather than my computer!
-Watch high quality videos on your large screen.
-Compact size for easy carrying
- NOT FRAGILE extra durable and scratch resistant.
- I'd pay a lot of money for one of these if it had a 5 MP camera on it that also recorded video.
-FREE 5-star apps on App Store
-itunes and app store are easy to use and there's a million apps
-voice control sucks past basic commands. Disappoited only bad feature NOT available in 8GB touch or 16GB touch
-Charges fast lasts all day.
-settings and secutity are awesome
-All around the best product ever made by apple. I will never buy myself another mp3 player, none of these can compete with the itouch.
-I love it... It doesn't get old...
There's always new apps that come out and new things to wonder over... amazing device...
Pros Good OS (easy-to-use iOS).
Possibility of updates, even if not being the latest model.
Good iPod, almost-perfect music player.
Cons Lack of camera.
System slows down when using a little heavier applications.
Almost no customization.
Summary Certainly looking for a future with high profits, Apple gives us an incomplete device, with a lot of potential, but missing some features.
Pros It's a nifty device that is fun to use.
Cons really really really bad customer service
Summary The ipod touch is a very handy device that is a lot of fun as well. But when the battery that is supposed to play video for 7 hours only lasts for 3 hours there is a problem. If you would be able to call customer service and get it fixed it would be a little problem. Well it's been 2 months and I finally got a refurbished product that don't work at all because the screen does not work... At this moment customer service is making me go through upgrades to no avail. It's two hours later and now they want me to go through it all again. So while waiting for this darn thing to update for the second time I am writing reviews on it in a bad mood!!!
