You know iPod Touch never means a music player only; it’s also an entertainment center. Now it takes fun to the next level!

The iPod Touch now includes the world’s most advanced mobile operating system - iOS 5, which not only contributes to the ease-to-use interface, rock-solid stability, but also gives you over 200 existing new features, including iMessage over Wi-Fi, Twitter Integration, Notification Center at the top of your screen, the world’s most popular Game Center, and more. The features included with iOS 5 make iPod touch even more powerful, innovative, and fun to use.

And, iCloud stores your music, photos, documents, and more and wirelessly pushes them to all your devices. Automatic, effortless, and seamless — with iCloud, whatever’s on your iPod touch is automatically on your other devices, too. Other features include Retina Display, Two Cameras, AirPlay, Games + Apps and etc. iPod Touch now comes in two colors: black and white.

  • newegg iOS 5 Operating System Running the show on every iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad is iOS. It lets you browse, read, and see everything just by touching the screen. It also includes all the fun, powerful, and innovative built-in apps you use every day, many times a day. And the latest version, iOS 5, is packed with over 200 exciting new features that will make you say, “Best. iPod. Ever.”
  • newegg iCloud Thanks to iCloud, your iPod touch has an even tighter bond with your Mac or PC (and your iPhone or iPad). iCloud stores your music, apps, games, latest photos, and more and makes them accessible on your other devices. And it keeps your email, contacts, and calendars up to date across them, too. It’s all automatic. There’s no syncing required, no management required, no anything required. iCloud does the work for you.
  • newegg Retina Display There are lots of reasons you won’t want to take your eyes off iPod touch. The 960-by-640 backlit LCD display, for one. It packs 326 pixels per inch, making it the highest-resolution iPod screen ever. To achieve this, Apple engineers developed pixels so small — a mere 78 micrometers across — that the human eye can’t distinguish individual pixels. Even though you can’t see them, you’ll definitely notice the difference they make. Text is remarkably sharp and graphics are incredibly vivid.
  • newegg Two Cameras iPod touch captures video with two built-in cameras. It shoots amazing HD 720p video from the back camera. And with its advanced backside illumination sensor, it captures beautiful footage even in low-light settings. All while the built-in microphone records conversations, music, or any audio at the same time. And on the front of iPod touch, the built-in camera is perfect for making FaceTime calls and shooting self-portraits. It’s surprising how much fun can fit into something so small.
  • newegg AirPlay Your music, photos, and video — a.k.a. all the great stuff on your iPod touch — can stream wirelessly to an HDTV and speakers. A feature called AirPlay makes it happen. It works with AirPlay-enabled speakers or Apple TV on a Wi-Fi network. Just tap the AirPlay icon on iPod touch and blast some tracks, crack up over photos, or have a YouTube-a-thon. Big time.
  • newegg Music + iTunes When iPod came on the scene years ago, it was all about music. iPod touch is the evolution of that first iPod, but one thing remains the same: It’s still about music. With up to 64GB of storage capacity, iPod touch lets you keep thousands of songs with you all the time. And when your favorite artist drops an album, or you’re feeling like it’s time for some new music, the iTunes Store is just a tap away.

This review is from: Apple iPod touch 16GB Black (4th Generation)

Pros: iPod was as described. Happy to still be able to get new "old tech" with more capability than the 5th gen models for equivalent price. No issues with shipping/packaging.

1 out of 5 eggsUpdate to 7/9 review

This review is from: Apple iPod touch 16GB Black (4th Generation)

Pros: The Apple Product is working great

Cons: You can see my 7/9 review on this vendor and I want to post a follow up. After reading my 7/9 review the vendor started harassing me on my home phone number calling me multiple times a day and sending me e-mails demanding I take the review down. The vendor even called me a stupid mean person in an e-mail. I had to contact NewEgg and have the vendor representative intervene to get the phone calls and e-mails to stop.

Other Thoughts: I am a loyal NewEgg customer but I will avoid this vendor in the future and I feel it is important to share with other potential buyers what my experience with this vendor was like.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

This review is from: Apple iPod touch 16GB Black (4th Generation)

Pros: Can do many things besides play music. Details? Take a guess.

Cons: It's not 16gb, it's 13.7gb. But everything else is perfect.

Other Thoughts: Wanna get mad?
