The iPod Touch is a very portable, useful and fun product for many types of people. You can watch videos, listen to and purchase music, play apps, browse the internet, check emails, use IM, take photos and videos, share them and much more - right in the palm of your hand! It is amazing value for money and you will use it several times a day. It has Wi-Fi that is very easy and fast to use and set up. Personally, it took me just a matter of days to make it seem that I have used it for a few years!

The camera quality is great throughout all versions (and the latest version(s) give the ability to record videos as well). You can share these photos on social networks or emails very easily.
The battery life is also very good indeed. You can watch programs online (e.g BBC Iplayer etc) or purchased videos on this device, and you can use headphones, or listen to it out loud. I personally recommend Apple's own headphones for this product rather than listening to it out loud as the sound isn't the best otherwise.

It is great for either personal use or for the family. Young children can use this to play a range of games or use entertaining applications very well, teenagers or young adults can use it for research, revision, browsing or messaging, and adults will benefit with researching, purchasing items, checking and sending emails and more.

The 8GB capacity it contains is best for personal use as this is the smallest space available. It can hold a handful of a range of applications, music, some videos and space for photos. It is not recommended if you have a lot of any of these.

Overall, the iPod Touch is a very entertaining device that has a range of features that can be used and great for all ages. It looks very nice and is extremely easy to use and get the hang of. Great value for money.
