Apple iPod touch (Gen 4) First-Look Review

by Reads (65,511)

PRELIMINARY CONCLUSION

Obviously I can’t draw any final conclusions on the new Apple iPod touch after just a few days with the device, but at this point my impressions are almost overwhelmingly positive.

Apple iPod touchThe new display is stunning, and while the external speaker is a little underpowered, it’s great to have one and makes playing games without headphones a lot more fun. Being able to use it with the Apple Wireless Keyboard means that the touch can be much more than a simple entertainment device if you want it to be. My only concern is the battery issue mentioned above.

The fourth-generation iPod touch undeniably represents a significant upgrade from my first-generation model. Whether or not the new features like the camera with video capture and the new Retina display make it a worthy upgrade from a second- or third-generation device is a more difficult question to answer at this point, and depends a great deal on your budget.

If you don’t already have an iPod touch and can’t stand the thought of signing a contract with AT&T in order to get the iPhone, the new model is a great all-around entertainment and productivity device.

Stay tuned for the full review here on Brighthand.
