Apple iPod touch (4G) 32 GB
Apples reputation in the last few years has just continued to grow and grow. They are recognised as the forefront designers in the creation of what people want. They simply make great products, and this iPod touch is literally no different. It revolutionises the whole way we listen to music and gives users a whole host of other options to make life easier, more fun, more exciting and just a great deal more enjoyable. For that apple, i applaud you. Please keep it up; expect reviews on the new Apple gizmo to be launched in september!!!
The iPod touch
Firstly, the iPod touch is a music mp3 system, so that you can listen to songs whilst on the go. This is not revolutionary or ground breaking, or indeed very interesting. However, the way you can simply slide your fingers and tap the screen to select music is pretty neat, and also makes life easier as you get to your songs quickly and efficiently. The genius function (where apple picks out similar songs to make your life easier) as well as the shuffle, are fantastic additions to a great mp3 system, and even if you just want to listen to music, you should not look further than apple. I believe, obviously depending on apps and the like, that you can get about 2000 songs on this model, which should be enough for anyone!
So much more than an mp3
The mp3 is just the beginning. Essentially the iPod touch is an iPhone, without the calling parts to it. Therefore, you get all the rest of the fantastic bits and pieces. You get e-mail, full internet, apps, weather reports, a camera, and oh so much more. Obviously, some of these, require internet access, and for that you do need a wifi connection. If you have this in your house already, then your in luck, it will run quickly and efficiently and i guarantee that the use of your laptop will decrease. Also, when you are out and about on the move, more 'openzone' facilities are becoming available, so it is easy to pick up information while on the road.
Okay, so it is a pricey product, and is quite a bit of a luxury. Weighing in about £200 online, you certainly should shop around. I know it is expensive for an mp3, but they are so so much more. Thus, it has to be worth it, especially with xmas around the corner (albeit a very long turn).
Do not drop it. Do not drop it. Do not drop it. I could just write that for the durability issues. If it does hit the deck, chances are it is game over, but there are plenty of nice cases and bits similar to that out there if your products tend to hit the deck. I believe insurance against this is also available, which may also be worth looking into.
Once again Apple have revolutionised the way we think. Keep the marvellous products coming please Mr Jobs!
Summary: A wonderful product
