I have been using this iPod for about 2 years. My brother gave it to me as a present in my birthday. I was very excited since then because it was my first touch screen gadget I ever had. Last month, I upgraded it into OS 5 in 5.0.1 version, continued with "jailbreak". It was very easy to jailbreak it using redsn0w (if you want to jailbreak it, you can find the way "how to jailbreak the iPod touch" from watching it in YouTube). Jailbreak means you can download any paid applications freely, so you don't have to purchase the applications in iTunes or App Store.
Jail-breaking your ipod will void your warranty. But when you reset your iPod, it is like you never jail-broke it, so you get the warranty back. I still don't know is it legal or illegal to jailbreak the iPod.
iPod touch comes out with 2 color (black and white). It is a very slim gadget. I own a iPod touch with black color. It has an Apple logo on the back with white color. But the iPod color on the back is silver.
iPod touch 4G design seems like iPhone. iPod touch 4G doesn't change too much from the first model (iPod touch 1st generation). The latest iPod touch has a front camera in the upper-center, the previous versions don't have it. The camera on the back is located in the upper-left corner. I think the design of iPod touch model is the best from other digital players.
I think the front and back camera quality is not as good as I expected before. The photo quality is far different from iPhone 4S. The camera of iPod touch 4G is fixed-focus rather than auto-focus, so you have to concern about the exposure. Front camera is VGA-camera (usually used for video call). There are no flash on the both cameras.
The sound quality is also not so great. I hear no bass when listening to the music. So, I like to wear a headphone when hearing the music. The speaker is not so good for listening. If you are planning on using the iPod speaker for listening, you might want to reconsider.
Apple provides default software and features for iPod touch. There are calendar, contacts book, clock, mail, maps, reminders, media players, photos, and browser. Many new features found in iOS 5 such as iMessages, iCloud, FaceTime video calls, and more.
My brother bought it for about £227. It was include cable and ear-buds in the box. My iPod also came with iPod cover and screen protector.
All in all, I'm very pleased with my iPod. This iPod is very incredible and helpful. This iPod can be used as dictionary, travel guide, finance information, and even music creator. I also can access my laptop through this small iPod with iTeleport. Now this iPod becomes an important gadget for me. I can travel to other countries easier with my iPod.
I usually use this iPod for playing games and listening the musics. There are so many high rating and interesting games you can download, like Angry Bird, Infinity Blade, and many others. I also love to use the social networking tools such as yahoo messenger, windows live messenger, and skype. But it needs WiFi to operate it.
By the way, iPod touch with 32gb memory is more than enough. My iPod has 217 songs, 7 videos, 60 photos, and 82 applications but the memory capacity is still 18GB available.
Thank you for reading.
