New iPod Touch & iPod Nano Reviews

 

The iPhone 4S actually does have some killer new features. The 2011 iPod refresh, on the other hand, is just that -- a refresh. But sometimes good enough is plenty good enough. Though the newest iPods lack any whiz-bang new features, they're still the...

Now available in white. iOS 5 and iCloud baked-in. Lower- priced 8GB model

Camera is lower-quality than the iPhone’s camera. No bundled headset/remote, just standard Apple earbuds

If you need an iPod, these refreshed models are good buys. But the best news is that owners of previous models can gain all the new functionality with a software update-- so everyone wins! Thanks, Apple.

iPod Touch 4th Generation - Little Better Than The Last

 

Apple has refreshed its iPod line right on schedule, with some fairly major updates to all models, except to the nearly-forgotten iPod Classic. It's fairly obvious that the Touch is now Apple's mainstream and most capable iPod offering, giving...

Battery life is rated at up to 40 hours of music playback or 7 hours of video. We didn’t get to test this claim, but found the device didn’t need charging even after two days of moderate use of music, gaming and Web surfing over the Wi-Fi connection. ...

Apple iPod Touch ( 4th generation, 16GB, black)

 

Editors' note (May 30, 2013): Apple has discontinued this version of the iPod Touch and replaced it with a $229 16GB fifth-generation model that boasts a larger 4-inch screen and faster processor, but has no rear camera. The 32GB and 64GB fifth-gen...

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 (4th generation, 32GB, white)

 

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 (4th generation)

 

Three years after Apple stretched the definition of “personal media player” to new heights with its class-leading iPod Touch, other manufacturers are just starting to catch up with Android-powered mini tablets. Despite the added competition, the latest...

Incredibly thin, sleek design ; High-resolution Retina display ; Solid Apple build quality ; iOS versatility and ease-of-use ; Long battery life for multimedia ; 720p HD video capture and videoconferencing

Below-average file support ; Low-res rear camera ; No GPS ; Smudgy mirror finish

The returning touch-screen champ, Apple’s 4th-generation iPod Touch retains its title with a Retina display, HD video recording, a faster processor,and a competitive price.

Multitasking 4th-Gen iPod Touch Is Finger-Swipin' Good

 

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

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.
