About This iPod

The iPod touch comes with a full face multi-touch screen. It does not have the scroll wheels that are common with the old versions of the iPod which gives it the look of a futuristic device and allows it to revolutionize the portable music device industry. Some of the capabilities of this device include – Wi-Fi support, the ability to store photos and videos apart from just songs and be able to playback. Its battery was able to support 30 hours of music playback and about 6 hours of video playback. There is no FireWire support in this version as Apple chose to use a lighting connector for both charging and data transfer. A larger driving force for the device was the Apple app store which allowed developers to put their apps on the device.

Storage & Memory

The iPod touch runs on a 256 MB RAM and has versions that came with 32 GB of storage space and can take an estimated – 7000 songs/40,000 photos; the 64 GB version can take 14,000 songs/90,000 photos.

    Screen Size and Resolution

    The iPod touch comes with a 3.5-inch color display with 320×480 (163 ppi) native resolution. The screen features multi-touch capability which allowed users to use more than one finger to interact with the screen.

      OS & Processor

       

      The iPod touch has iPhone OS 3.1.1 (7C145) pre-installed and is powered by a 800 MHz Samsung ARM processor. The use of Samsung components is carried throughout the line and extended to the mobile devices. Apple will be changing over to their own mobile chip in future products.

       

      Battery

       

      The iPod touch comes with a Lithium Ion battery that provides up to 30 hours of music playback. This is an inflated amount which does not reflect the time use if you are using applications or anything to do with the screen. The 30 hours of use only applies to music playback.

       

      Connectivity

       

      The iPod touch comes with USB data transfer and charging support and an audio out via a headphone jack. Through its dock support, it can perform a video out but only using an Apple lightning cable or any connecting device that has an “Apple Authentication ” chip included.

      Upgradability
