Apple iPod Touch

 

Apple's new iPod feels very much like a version 1.0 product. It does the job, but leaves you wanting more.

Nice screen. Innovative interface. Access to iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store ; Can't edit calendar. No volume control on device. No games. No email. Missing some apps found on the iPhone. Reports of display problems with early-shipping units

Can't edit calendar. No volume control on device. No games. No email. Missing some apps found on the iPhone. Reports of display problems with early-shipping units

As a media player, the iPod touch won't disappoint you, but when you hold one in your hands, it's hard not to think that the device could've offered more. Perhaps Apple will add new features with software updates.

Apple iPod touch (2014)

 

The Apple iPod touch gets a price drop and feature upgrade, making it an even more compelling gateway into the world of iOS apps than ever before.

Terrific design and build. Sharp display. Adds 5-megapixel, rear-facing camera. Tremendous number of apps.

16GB storage can pinch with large games or movies.

Conclusions The Apple iPod touch remains the de facto choice for portable touch-screen media players—there simply is no alternative that can match the touch on finish and features. But that's only when viewed through the narrow lens of the media player...

Apple iPod Touch 2011 review: Apple iPod Touch 2011

 

Editors' note: On October 12, 2011, Apple provided a free software update for the iPod Touch bringing new apps and several refinements to existing features. Visit CNET's iPhone Atlas for an in-depth look at these changes.

Apple's iPod Touch comes with a new color, a new price, and feature-packed OS. It records HD video, chats over video or iMessages, checks your e-mail, keeps your appointments, connects to the cloud, rents movies, plays music, takes pictures, and plays...

Photo quality doesn't hold up to the iPhone 4's; there's no GPS, and no option for 3G data service.

The iPod Touch is the best iPod yet, offering all the fun of the iPhone experience without a carrier contract or monthly bill.

Apple iPod Touch (third generation review: Apple iPod Touch (third generation

 

Editors' note, June 23, 2010: With the release of iOS4 (a free upgrade for iPod Touch users) Apple has added several improvements to the iPod Touch. Because the 8GB third-generation Touch (shown here) is technically identical to the second-generation...

The third generation of Apple's iPod Touch is still the king of the hill when it comes to portable, Wi-Fi wielding media players. New additions such as Voice Control, graphics enhancements, improved accessibility, higher capacity, and a faster...

Apple's 8GB Touch doesn't share the same hardware improvements as its higher-capacity kin, and the video cameras found on the iPhone 3GS and iPod Nano remain conspicuously absent. The lack of refinements to its audio quality, hardware design, and video...

Though the updates are subtle, the third-generation iPod Touch still leaves its competitors in the dust.

Review: Apple iPod Touch 32GB

 

With its beautiful screen and Wi-Fi, the touch subtracts your computer from the song-management equation. Throw in Web browsing and this gizmo may even remove...

Movies are simply delicious on the huge, 480 x 320 screen, and it doesn’t get hot during playback. So feature-packed it’s almost a stand-alone computer

Version 1.x owners have to pay for upgrade to OS 2.1. Battery life could be better, and 8 video playback stops when power dips below 10 percent

Apple iPod Touch Audio/Video

 

With its latest iteration of the iPod Touch, Apple has added two highly coveted features--external volume controls and a speaker--and lowered prices, too. However, the Touch's physical changes are incremental, and they don't bring the device up to the...

Includes a Web browser and Wi-Fi ; Beautiful design, easy to operate

Expensive

The Touch remains a tremendous and innovative device, with enticing features, unparalleled ease of use, and plenty of expandability through the App Store. As attractive as it is, though, I still believe it has room to improve. New features coupled with...

Apple iPod Touch Flash-Based MP3 Player

 

The iPod Touch's beautiful design, useful apps, touch screen, and built-in Wi-Fi outweigh minor audio-quality issues.

Includes a Web browser and Wi-Fi ; Beautiful design, easy to operate

Expensive ; Dark videos can be difficult to see

The iPod Touch is beautifully designed and incredibly fun to use. It still suffers from some performance hiccups, but I'd gladly recommend it to anyone looking for a mobile video player, a portable Web browser, or a high-class way to cart around the...

Review: Apple iPod Touch 16GB

 

Basically an iPhone sans phone, the iPod Touch is without a doubt the best iPod we've seen for both audio and video. The mind-melting elegance...

Thin, elegant design – slightly smaller than an iPhone. Incredibly intuitive and gorgeous multitouch interface for browsing music, videos, photos, the iTunes store or the web. Fantastic six-hour movie playback, with more than 20 hours audio. Ambient...

Transition to the Touch left out some phone-centric iPhone features like the camera and external speakers, but also left out media player-appropriate Bluetooth support as well as WiFi compatible mapping, e-mail and stocks apps. No external volume...

Apple 8GB iPod touch (1G, Late 2007)

 

Web browsing and YouTube video on an iPod ; Beautiful and intuitive interface ; ITunes Wi-Fi Music Store is fleet over fast Wi-Fi and very convenient ; Extra applications useful

No calendar event editing ; Darkly lit video and photos lack detail ; Incompatible with old video accessories ; No external volume controls or support for remote control
