Apple iPod touch 16GB

 

Touch of genius or expensive gimmick? Bit of both really.

So can a simple touch screen really be worth paying this much for? The short answer is yes, but you don't want the short answer, so here's why... The touch's touch-sensitive control system really is a revolution in user interfaces - I can think of no...

This Wi-Fi, touchscreen iPod is everything that Apple geeks had been baying for for years ' but can it step out of the iPhone's shadow?

Beautiful touchscreen interface. Superb sounds and visuals. Wi-Fi works superbly

Not as good as iPhone. Relatively meagre memory. Still no movies on iTunes Store

Apple iPod touch - First Look

 

Launched at the Beat goes on event in San Francisco and then televised around the world, Apple has announced a new iPod; the iPod touch. But should you drop everything and run out and buy one? We managed to get our hands on one at the London event in...

3.5-inch touchscreen, CoverFlow, Wi-Fi, size, design

Only 16GB of storage, keypad shocking to use

This Wi-Fi, touchscreen iPod is everything that Apple geeks had been baying for for years – but can it step out of the iPhone's shadow?

This is one of the sharpest bits of tech we've ever seen – it's just let down by the fact that iPhone does more, and iPod Classic has more room. But frankly, even knowing that, our heart still say 'yes'

Apple iPod touch 32GB review

 

Apple's top-of-the-line iPod gets a memory boost and new features

Amazing touch screen ; Finally a decent memory size ; Five new apps ; WiFi, Safari and Mail ; Fantastic menu navigation

It was never going to be cheap

Rejoice! The iPod touch has come of age. It's time to reach for the credit card again…

Apple iPod Touch

 

This is, without doubt, one of the most desirable PMPs it's been my pleasure to stroke. It's oh so sleek, beautifully designed and every interaction you have with it is satisfying - well, mostly.

Very attractive, Groundbreaking features, WiFi enabled

Low storage capacity, High price

A stylish head-turner but you pay for the privilege

Apple iPod touch 8GB

 

Had the iPod touch been released a year ago it would have surely been met with near universal approval. Its arrival now - for all its shiny, lovely deliciousness - is decidedly less astonishing. The problem, you see, is the iPhone

Touch screen is superb, Best music navigation of any iPod, Wi-Fi and Safari

Low capacity, Feels like a stripped down iPhone

A lovely device, but it feels less like a flagship iPod than an iPhone with some of the features ripped out

Apple iPod Touch review

 

Apple's iPod Touch media player has reached its 5th incarnation, with more power and a wider range of features than ever before. One of the first things we noticed was the Touch's new, slimmer design. It looks great and makes for an easier fit into...

With upgrades to its power and display quality, the iPod Touch is still the most versatile media player around

Apple iPod touch

 

In marked contrast to the nano, you have to look closely at the new iPod touch to spot the differences from its predecessor. The only visible physical changes are the welcome addition of a hardware volume control and the removal of the black border...

Feels like we're in love. The best bits of the iPhone without the phone - a superb mobile media accessory.

32GB iPod touch review

 

When Apple unveiled the iPod touch our initial reaction was lukewarm. Its video wasn't as bright and defined as that of the iPhone. It offered an unnecessarily hobbled set of features - the Calendar application, for example, didn't allow you to add or...

If you've held off on purchasing an iPod touch because it hasn't offered enough of the iPhone's functionality or storage, it may be time to reconsider unbuckling your credit card. Granted, the display could be a bit brighter and its colour a little...
