DisadvantagesOnly 5 hours battery life for video, can be slow to sync with iTunes, price is very high

"...your edification. ==Getting Started== This is an Apple product and it goes without saying that you need iTunes installed on your computer to use it. I am not a huge fan of iTunes for music - they use the AAC format which I really don't like, and I also resent the fact for years any songs you purchased were copy protected and limited to 5 computers. This copy protection has been removed but it's something that stopped me downloading legally for ..." Read review

An underrated, underdog device that deserves a mention

AdvantagesExcellent screen for movies, audio is crisp, WiFi internet is fast, light, portable, elegant

DisadvantagesPrice may be a bit steep for some, may be mistaken for iPhone

"...its primary customers, the personal Apple devices. As a trader of apps, music and movies, iTunes is a neutral observer that serves all that go to it in search of multimedia. Without iTunes, the iPod Touch cannot properly flourish, thus it has to frequently synchronise with the trader to properly obtain what it requires. There is some limited standalone content updating via the iPod Touch’s built-in App Store and iTunes widgets via WiFi internet, but ..." Read review

It's A Party In My Pocket, And You Can Touch It If You Want...

AdvantagesBoasts Tons of Features, Sleek Design

DisadvantagesBuilt-in Camera Would've Been Nice, Battery Runs Out Faster Than Promised

"...power control. You cannot fault Apple for their simplistic yet remarkable design here. Secondly is the actual screen of the iPod touch. As we are all know learning, buttons are slowly becoming a thing of the past, now replaced by the power of touch. The entire screen is touch-sensitive, and completely controlled by the power of your fingers. Because of this, everything flows so fluidly and you can breeze through various menus and options in the blink ..." Read review

AdvantagesSound Quality, Storage

DisadvantagesNot too durable, Easy to scratch

"Apple iPod Touch 64 GB :) I bought this item for £229.99 Advantages This is the 3rd iPod touch model that came out. I have had this iPod touch for around 2 years now and I have never even thought of the the idea of changing it to the updated version. Price The price was expensive when first released and this was because this version of the iPod was updated from the 2nd gen, a nicer look and all round quality improvement. You can buy this iPod ..." Read review

Product Information for "Apple iPod Touch 64GB 3rd Generation" »

Manufacturer's product description

iPod touch features the same multi-touch screen technology as iPhone. Pinch to zoom in on a photo. Scroll through your songs and videos with a flick. Flip through your library by album artwork with Cover Flow. Watch your movies, TV shows, and photos come alive with bright, vivid color on the 320-by-480-pixel display. Browse the web using Safari and watch YouTube videos on the first iPod with Wi-Fi built in. What a song does for your ears, Cover Flow on iPod touch does for your eyes and fingers. It's a virtual party for the senses. Turn iPod touch on its side and glide through your music by album art with the flick of your finger. Tap an album cover to flip it over and display a track list. Tap again to start the music. Now the genius feature is even more powerful. All you do is sync iPod touch to iTunes, and Genius automatically searches your library and finds songs that sound great together. Then it creates multiple mixes you'll love. These mixes are like channels programmed entirely with your music. Say you're listening to a song on your iPod touch that you really like and want to hear other tracks that go great with it. Just tap the Genius icon. Genius automatically finds songs on your iPod touch that go great with your selected song and makes a Genius playlist for you. You listen to music, and now your music listens to you. The iPod touch models feature Voice Control. So you can tell iPod touch to play songs from a specific playlist or artist. Or speak simple commands such as "shuffle" "pause" and "next song". You can even ask for the name of the track that's currently playing. Your very own private screening awaits you on iPod touch. Watch the latest film release or an episode of your favorite sitcom anytime you want. Store up to 80 hours of video and get up to 6 hours of video playback time on the iPod touch. Voice Control knows the music in your iPod touch. Want to hear something specific? All you have to do is ask. For instance, say "Play artist Bob Dylan," and iPod touch does just that. Ask what song is playing and hear iPod touch answer. Tell it to play your favorite album, artist, or playlist. Speak simple commands such as "shuffle," "next song," and "pause." Even have iPod touch play more songs like the one you're listening to. The iPod touch comes with the Apple earphones with remote and mic. So you can reap the benefits (and the fun) of Voice Control even when your iPod touch is tucked in your pocket or bag. To activate Voice Control using the headphones, just press and hold the center area of the remote. While watching your video, tap the display to bring up the onscreen controls. You can play or pause, view by chapter, and adjust the volume. You can also use the volume controls on the left side of iPod touch. Want to switch between widescreen and full screen? Simply tap the display twice. Record a simple to-do, your next big idea, or a bet between you and your friend. With Voice Memos, you can record any audio you want using the Apple earphones with remote and mic or an external mic. Voice Memos will record even when you're using your iPod touch to do things such as checking email or surfing the web. iPod touch includes built-in Nike + iPod support. Just slip the Nike + iPod Sensor (available separately) into your Nike+ shoe and start your run. The sensor communicates wirelessly with your iPod touch, tracking your time, distance, and calories burned. It even gives you voice feedback on your progress.
