Original iPod touch

As part of its huge September 2007 iPod event, Apple introduced the first iPod touch, essentially the original iPhone with its phone circuitry removed.

1G iPod touchBetter yet, the iPod touch was a bit smaller, significantly thinner, and also lighter than the iPhone. Best of all, it didn’t tie you to a two-year AT&T wireless plan. You bought it, you owned it, you did what you wanted with it.

Unlike the iPhone, the iPod touch has no camera, no wireless data option, and no Bluetooth. Networking is strictly over WiFi.

It’s hard to believe, but the iPhone and iPod touch only had a small set of apps provided by Apple when they were originally released. Just look at that nearly empty screen on the right! It wasn’t until iPhone OS 2.0 and the App Store launched in July 2008 that these devices allowed third-party software.
