As always,Apple is back in the news again with the iPod touch which was
introduced yesterday, the 15th of July, in a new lineup of colors including space
gray, silver, gold, pink and blue. The iPod touch is an iOS based, all purpose
pocket computer with a touchscreen-based user interface. It is ultra-portable
and comes with awesome features such as a new 8 megapixel iSight camera for
beautiful photos, an improved FaceTime HD camera for even better selfies and
Apple-designed A8 chip that is of 10 times faster graphics performance for a
more immersive gaming experience and even better fitness tracking with the
M8 motion coprocessor.
The ultra-portable device is a perfect multimedia gadget that has all it takes
with a great battery life. It has a three times faster Wi-Fi that lets users stay in
touch with friends and family through FaceTime calls and speeds up movies and
TV shows download. It is basically a video player, digital camera, hand held
game device and personal digital assistant; an all in all device only that it
doesn’t use cellular data which makes it less a smartphone.Though, its design is
quite similar to that of an iPhone and this is why it is often referred to as the
“phone without a phone”.
Incredibly,all iPod touch users around the world have access to Apple Music, the
App Store and iOS, the world’s most advanced mobile operating system at a
starting price of just $199 for 16GB model,$299 for 64GB and $399 for 128GB
models respectively. It’s no doubt Apple is leading the world today in terms of
innovation and little can be left to one’s imagination of what is to come.
