iPod Touch?!?!

Today, I am going to be talking about the iPod Touch from Apple. The iPod Touch first appeared in 2005. It is much different than the traditional ipods, with an interface much like the iPhone (discussed in a previous blog). This ipod has a 3.5 inch touch screen, hence the name iPod Touch. The iPod Touch, itouch, also has a lot of similar features as the iPhone. (1) They look almost identical. The iPhone is a little longer and weights a bit more (as seen in the image to the left). (2) Both devices have Wi-Fi capabilities. The iPhone can access the Internet via the 3G network provided by AT&T. The itouch can only use Wi-Fi (802.11b/g). They also both have "Safari." Safari is MAC's Internet browser. Both the iPhone and itouch have the abilities to open full HTML web pages. This mean that you can pay bills, check scores, and watch YouTube straight from your iPod Touch. (3) Of course most people buy iPods for music and the itouch will not disappoint. You can store up to 1750 songs with the 8GB, 3500 songs with the 16GB, and 7000 songs with the 32GB version. You can also access iTunes from your iPod Touch, and when you find a song you like, you can purchase it as well. (4) I have one more feature I would like to discuss. The iPod Touch can access most of the iPhone applications; such as games, Wi-Fi finders, etc. Over all this is a great product. The 8GB iPod Touch starts around $229, 16GB = $299, and the 32GB = $399. So, if you are like me and don't have AT&T, then the iPod Touch is the way to go and much cheaper than canceling your contract (around $200) and getting an iPhone ($199 with a new contract plus the contracts monthly charges; $599 without).
