The iPod touch now feels even better in your hand thanks to its incredibly thin, contoured enclosure made of polished stainless steel. The 3.5-inch widescreen display is perfect for watching movies and playing games.
A built-in speaker allows you to listen without headphones, and volume buttons are now built-in to the left side, giving you easy access to one of the most frequently used controls.
Groundbreaking technologies such as the multi-touch display, accelerometer, and 3D graphics, make the iPod touch fantastic for gaming. The accelerometer actually responds to your movements, so you can tilt and turn your touch to control the action. A new Genius feature also turns your iPod into your very own personal DJ. It cleverly creates playlists by finding songs in your music library that go perfectly together.
Now you can not only listen to music, but touch it too. Using your finger to navigate, you can flick through your albums by the cover art, a bit like leafing through a box of LPs to find your favourite record. You can even flip the cover over to view the track listing on the back! It really is that easy to find what you want. A customizable Home screen also lets you navigate your iPod touch faster.
The 8GB flash drive has enough room to store up to 1750 songs, 10,000 photos or 10 hours of video, so youll always have plenty of choice when picking something to watch or listen to. And with 6 hours of video or 30 hours of audio playback from a single recharge, youre bound to enjoy your music or movies on the move without interruption.
Thanks to the Wi-Fi capability of the iPod touch, youll be able to surf the internet or buy music from the iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store, whilst youre out and about. Find a Wi-Fi hotspot, establish a connection, and the rest is easy. And when you get home and synch, your music purchases will be added to your iTunes library.
Web connectivity will also let you enjoy Mail, Google Maps, Stocks, Weather and Safari web clips (the ability to add Safari bookmarks to the Home screen).
