State-of-the-art fun in the palm of your hand that keeps your fingers on the pulse of your life.
The 4th Generation version of the iPod Touch now has been upgraded with all of Apple's most advanced features, including FaceTime, Retina display, HD video recording, Game Center, and more.
Elegant and intuitive interface
The first time you pick up an iPod touch, you'll know how to use it. That's because the revolutionary Multi-Touch interface in iOS was designed for the most natural pointing device ever: your finger. So whether you're using one of the built-in apps or one of the over 250,000 apps and games available from the App Store, you control everything with a tap, drag, swipe, pinch, flick, or twist of your fingers. Even tasks such as starting a FaceTime call or editing a video with iMovie are simple, easy, and fun.
Video calling is in full effect on iPod touch. Now your friends can see what you're up to, when you're up to it. With the tap of a button, you can wave "hi" while standing in a foreign country, get a second opinion on a pair of boots, or have your friends bear witness to the everyday pranks, bets, and dares they otherwise might have missed. This new iPod touch to new iPod touch or iPhone 4 over Wi-Fi feature means you can come face to face with even more fun.
FaceTime on iPod touch makes it possible to take "LOL" to the next level and actually see friends laughing or bring "XOXO" to life when you blow someone a kiss from miles away. FaceTime works right out of the box”just enter your Apple ID and email address or create a new email account just for FaceTime. Using FaceTime is as easy as it gets. Say you want to start a video call with your best friend over Wi-Fi. Just tap the FaceTime app and find their entry to start the call. An invitation pops up on their iPod touch or iPhone 4 screen asking if they want to join you. Once they accept, FaceTime begins. It's all perfectly seamless, and it works in both portrait and landscape modes.
Two cameras make either side its fun side
iPod touch has two built-in cameras, one on the front above the display and one on the back. The front camera has been tuned for FaceTime. It has just the right field of view and focal length to focus on your face at arm's length. So it always presents you in the best possible light. This is particularly handy when you're talking to someone who's more than just a friend.
What about the front camera? Say your roommate had to work late and couldn't make it to the concert. You can share the encore with a FaceTime call. As the band takes the stage and starts playing one of their all-time favorite songs, just tap a button. Before the lead singer can belt out his first note, iPod touch switches to the back camera and to the sure-to-be-legendary performance. Another tap switches to the front camera and to you. Simple, fast, and fun.
Thanks to the Retina display, everything you see and do on iPod touch looks amazing. That's because the Retina display's pixel density is so high your eye is unable to distinguish individual pixels. This means the images in games, movies, and photos pop off the screen. Text in books, web pages, and email is crisp at any size. Everything is sharper.
More wow per inch
Behind the screen of iPod touch, there's some serious technology going on. By developing pixels a mere 78 micrometers wide, Apple engineers were able to pack four times the number of pixels into the same size screen found on earlier iPod touch models. This many pixels packed this close together”326 per inch”make graphics and text look smooth and continuous at any size. Prepare to be glued to the screen.
The Retina display includes LED backlighting and an ambient light sensor that automatically adjusts the brightness of the screen for the best viewing and battery life possible. This lets you focus on more important things, like destroying aliens.
HD video recording
Because your iPod touch and its built-in HD video camera go with you everywhere, you're always ready to record when the moment strikes”now you can do it in stunning high definition. An advanced backside illumination sensor delivers brilliant video in both bright and low-light settings. When you're done shooting, you can edit and share your movie in just a few taps. With iPod touch, you're the only film crew you need.
Built-in editing gives video a fun-tuning
No need to wait until you're back at your computer to edit video. With basic editing built into iPod touch, you can get right down to business. Just drag to select start and end points on a filmstrip. Keep only the parts of the video you want, and turn it into something you and your friends will watch again and again.
Make a movie starring you
The next time you venture out on say, an amazing hike, don't just tell your friends about it. Show them. In addition to the high-definition camera on the back, iPod touch has a VGA-quality camera on the front, above the display, that lets you see yourself on the display while you record. It's perfect for turning the camera on yourself. No more guessing if you're in the frame or accidentally cropping yourself out altogether. So get ready for your close-up.
Shoot what you want where you want.
Ever find yourself in the middle of typing an email when you see something that words just can't describe? Just launch the camera and record on the fly. Then upload your HD movie directly to YouTube or MobileMe, or select some video from the Camera Roll and attach it to a new email message, ready to send. Posting to your Facebook page or blog is also just a tap away. You can easily sync all the video you shoot on iPod touch back to your Mac or PC.
Point and shoot
