Apple iPod Touch 4th generation, 32GB, black

 

If you're buying an iPod Touch for someone, this is not the iPod he or she wants. Trust me, people will want to open the box and see a shiny, colorful new fifth-generation iPod Touch . Your loved one will know the difference. The fifth generation has a...

The fourth-generation Apple iPod Touch , winner of CNET's 2011 Editors' Choice Award for portable media players, has been upgraded with new software and a boost in capacity.

The fifth-generation iPod Touch offers a larger screen, faster processor, and superior photo and camcorder quality.

The fourth-gen iPod Touch is Apple's second-best portable media player, with a price that will help you forget about No. 1.

Apple iPod touch (2012)

 

It's cheerful, colorful and versatile, and though it technically has competition, Apple's iPod touch still stands alone. While we still classify it as an MP3 player, the fully redesigned iPod touch is more like a smartphone without the phone, bringing...

Terrific design and build. Slim and light. Beautiful screen. Tremendous number of apps. Bundled EarPods are much improved

Expensive. Not natively compatible with earlier models' accessories

Apple's beautifully redesigned iPod touch is still the leading do-it-all MP3 player, but the new $300 entry-level price might make it a tough sell.

Apple iPod touch review (2012)

 

It all started with an iPod touch, a gift from my parents years ago. I've since bought a half-dozen more iPods, two iPhones, an iPad, and a MacBook Air. Somehow I'm sure Apple planned it that way. The touch is the entry point into people's worlds, the...

Great display ; Thin, light build ; Hugely improved camera

No good inexpensive option left ; Speaker and earbuds are unimpressive

Upgrades across the board, but for $300 I'd want the absolute bleeding edge

Apple iPod Touch 2011 8GB, black

 

Portions of this review are taken from CNET's review of the 2010 iPod Touch.

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.

Review: Apple iPod Touch 2010 4th Generation

 

The fourth version of the iPod Touch is faster, multitasks and most importantly, is not easily confused with an iPhone.

Feels impossibly thin—we literally lost the Touch in our own pockets. Looks so sharp you could nearly shave with it. Runner? You’re in luck. Touch supports Nike plus. 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi support. The display is beautiful, brilliant and mesmerizing. All...

Metallic finish collects more fingerprints than the NSA. Higher-end models are fairly costly. No flash on the browser or the camera. Video recording and still-image capture could be a touch (ha!) better

Apple 64GB iPod Touch (fourth generation, late 2010) Review - PCWorld

 

Unlike previous iPod Touches, the 4G version lacks the small black plastic patch on the back's top-left corner that covered the Wi-Fi antenna. That corner now holds the iPod's built-in omnidirectional microphone and its high-definition rear-facing...

Retina display provides sharp images and text

Rear-facing camera produces mediocre results

Compelling, extremely versatile device is almost a full-fledged iPhone.

Apple iPod touch 16GB

 

The Touch is certainly an amazing piece of technology. Mobile Safari is the best portable Web browser around, Cover Flow works great on a device with limited storage capacity, and the iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store is extremely slick for a first-generation...

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

Expensive ; Dark videos can be difficult to see

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

Apple iPod touch 8GB

 

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

Video and photos not as bright or as clearly defined as they are on an iPhone ; No calendar event editing ; Unimpressive battery performance ; Incompatible with old video accessories ; No external volume controls or support for remote control
