Apple iPod touch 3rd Gen 64GB

 

Just how incredible is Apple's new iPod touch? Hugo investigates.

As a mere media player, you'd be hard pushed to justify the high cost of an iPod touch. But as a mobile computing device that will run 3rd party apps, play games, browse the web and play your media, it's simply unrivalled.

Apple iPod touch review: the sixth gen shows there's life in the old dog yet

 

Apple's “iPhone without a phone” is still an attractive buy

Speedy operation ; Abundant features ; Long battery life

Pathetic built-in speaker ; No high-res support

Apple iPod Touch 3G review

 

Kitted out with a colossal 64GB, Apple's new iPod Touch proves solid-state PMPs definitely aren't for media wimps

It’s pricey, but the new Touch’s storage boost and multimedia skills make it the ultimate pocket entertainer

Apple iPod touch (3rd Gen)

 

It's not an easy task to review something ostensibly identical to another you've looked at before but that's pretty much what we're faced with by the 3rd generation AppleiPod touch. The first thing you'll notice when you break through the wrappings,...

Wonderfully fast, fantastically smooth and still a dream to hold

Serious camera disappointment, bad headphones and fairly pricey

All Apple could really have done to make the 3rd generation iPod touch significantly better was to add a camera or something else impossible like the ability to make your dinner. There's a temptation to slate the device for not being different enough...

iPod touch 64GB review

 

If you think a £110 premium is a fair price to pay for a bigger screen and App Store downloads, you'll love the touch. If not, turn to the classic and bag yourself an extra 96GB.

Apple iPod touch (3rd generation) review

 

The launch of the original Apple iPod touch in late 2007, in the aftermath of a summer of sheer Apple iPhone frenzy, was anticlimactic. The new device was hobbled by its hardware (no speaker or volume controls) and its software (Apple originally...

Functionally, the new iPod touch models are identical to the second-generation models we reviewed last year, especially when updated to version 3.1 of the iPhone OS. What we said then still goes: the iPod touch is a terrific media player and portable...

Apple iPod Touch (third generation review

 

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.

Apple iPod touch 3G review: design, build and sound quality

 

At a glance, the iPod touch 3G has barely evolved from the second gen media player: the frame and screen are almost identical, and what on earth happened to that camera we wanted? In truth though, there's a lot more going on under the bonnet this time...

Super slim, super gorgeous, headphone controls and mic

Attracts fingerprints like tweens to R-Patz, bundled cans are poor

iPod Touch (3G) Review

 

When Apple released the original iPod Touch back in 2007, I don't think even they knew what it would become. One button, a touch screen for navigation and a “Mac OS X” operating system… Well, the release event was the only time we ever heard the iPhone...

iPod touch 64GB

 

The iPod touch got perhaps the least attention of any iPod in the line-up's latest revamp. Stand this model beside its predecessors and you wouldn't know the difference. Externally, it's nigh-on identical, with a polished-steel back, a blanking plate...

At 299 (254 ex VAT), the 64GB touch isn't cheap - not when you can save yourself 110 and still get your hands on a 160GB classic. What you're paying for then, isn't capacity, but features and iPhone OS 3.1's brilliant brain. When Apple CEO, Steve Jobs,...
