Disadvantages: No flash,apple are control freaks but jailbreaking counters this,short battery life
I have had this ipod for about a year after my ipid touch 2g broke.i can safely say i would have upgraded anyway,as this new version has many features that the old ipods would have been immense with.the main added features are
>two cameras,one on the front and one on the back which can both be used for photos,videos(that can last for at least 30 minutes+) face time (which is a new FREE video call application similar to skype but can only be used with other apple products(which means you might as well download the free Skype application anyway,but its nice to see apple include it)Youtube (although the actual application has not been updated you can now directly upload videos from your device which is very easy and smooth) and the cameras also intergrate into many apps such as reflow(AR game),barcode scanners(amazon,argos etc...),and the countless photo apps and blogging such as flickr,twitter,facebook,instagram and more.The camera is very useful but dont expect hd videos or high pixel count as it is still overall a small camera.
>multitasking,the feature that many old ipodees would have wished they had with the constant quitting apps and havinf to relaunch them,this saves time but uses up a quite short battery life.
>bluetooth,although you might think"yay we can connect our phones" youd be wrong,due to apples reputation for control,the ipods bluetooth cant connect to most phones and if it does it cant do anything but play multiplayer games with other ipods/iphones as you cant transfer files.
As well as these features there is the general performance upgrade,retina screen,faster safari,better battery life and that sort of stuff.
There are not many negatives to this apart from the same things as all apple products such as their strict control over everything,no flash(although there are ways around this) and having a still short battery life.
Overall this is a great purchase for anyone familiar with apple products or someone looking for an upgrade.get the higher memory ones as you will have so much choice of stuff to download that an 8gb will be filled up easily.this is basically an iphone without the phone.
Summary: Overall great profduct for anyone who wants music,films,games,books,internet all in one place.
