IPods have been around for a while now and I used to have the Nano but wanted something more up to date and stylish and then I came across the Ipod Touch 3rd generation and I purchased this earlier in the year around January.
At the time the item was fairly new and it was unique in how small it was in terms of depth and then I found out it was 0.33 inches in depth and that was me convinced it was the right music player for me.
Designed by Apple who are literally stealing the market recently this item is in piano black and the back of the item is in the nice and luxurious looking silver finish. The back has the apple logo and throughout the product you have various buttons which help you produce the volume higher and lower and places to put headphones and chargers.
The screen on this item is 3.5 inches which is fantastic and it is touch screen so you can scroll along various screens to find the various items you might have downloaded.
You have one button which mainly does all the work for you. The big button on the front takes people back to the main menu and helps you find pages quicker. You can enable internet on the phone providing you are in a destination with Wi-Fi otherwise it is not going to happen. I have connected mine device to the internet and the WebPages load up quickly and smartly.
This product also has 8GB in memory terms which is a big chunk of memory but music is the main use for this item but then I found out you could install applications and I began to really appreciate the item even more. This was my first even adventure through the app world which Apple is famous for and I found some amazing applications to help me on my day to day travels.
You download the apps and play them on the product but some do not work and require the Iphone rather than the Ipod which is understandable. You have great speaker quality because when you do play songs the depth of how far the sound can echo is amazing and I find that a huge selling point.
I have had many music players where the music tends to dim down due to the low volume system in place on the item. The item is 140 grams so again this is easy to carry around and it is ultra thin so you can easily enjoy the benefits of not feeling weighted down by a heavy appliance.
You also have some issues because the back of the Ipod can easily be scratched which is annoying but sadly happens and you also have to keep cleaning the screen because the finger prints are evident all the time so these are a few drawbacks but you can buy wipes and cases to put your item into.
I think the speed of the item is fantastic but I like the fact that you can load music on to the item so quickly as well you have to have Itunes on your computer and any music you have you transfer over via USB connection and then it is complete. I find that once fully charged which takes about an hour you have got at least 20 hours or more of time to listen to music.
You can also watch videos which is key to note and you can have plenty of fun and in a way it is an alternate version of the Iphone just with dialing and the camera.
Summary: A very good sound device
