iPod Touch 4th Generation The Music Player Ever
The iPod Touch 4th generation is the largest capacity touch screen music player released by Apple to date. Being the 4th generation of the iPod Touch released in September 2010, it has pretty much followed the evolution of its closest relative the iPhone, with 4 generations being released over the last 4 years 2007-2010, with 1 new release each year. This amazingly cool mp3 player revolutionized the iPod series of Apple by adding in a touchscreen, hence its name “Touch”.
Apple has been very smart and strategic in releasing the iPod 4th generation, since when you look at it carefully; it is essentially an iPhone 4 minus the phone, messaging and GPS functionalities. Thus, Apple has literally killed 2 birds with 1 stone by creating 2 products, the iPhone and iPod Touch coming from the same base, and catering to the smartphone and PMP markets respectively. Since it is without phone functionality, it is thinner in size than the iPhone 4 at only 0.28 inches thick, with the same 4.4-inch height and 2.3-inch width, weighing a light 101 grams.
The Retina Display is indeed one of the killer features in both the 4th generation iPod and the iPhone, sporting a record-setting screen resolution of 960 by 640 pixels for an image quality of 326 ppi. This record still remains unbeaten to date across both smartphones and tablets as well. The previous 3rd generation iPod Touch had a screen resolution of only 480 by 320 pixels at 163 ppi. It runs on the ARM Cortex-A8 Apple A4 processor that is slightly under-clocked at 800MHz to save power from its original 1GHz speed.
The key difference between this iPod and the iPhone 4 is in the maximum storage capacity, where somehow Apple has managed to cram in 64GB in flash memory into the iPod Touch, whereas the iPhone 4 was only released in 16GB and 32GB sizes. This has since been matched by the latest iPhone 4S just released in October 2011, which now packs the same 64GB maximum capacity.
The iPod Touch 64GB 4th generation is compatible with the same iOS 5.0 on the iPhone 4 and iPad 2, and though it lacks 3G due to no cellular data and phone functionality, it has full Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n connectivity plus USB 2.0 and Bluetooth 2.1 as well. Armed with the same 3-axis gyroscope and microphone of the iPhone 4, the iPod Touch is fully capable of all motion sensing functions and apps as well.
