5G iPod touch
Apple introduced the 4th generation (5G) iPod touch earlier this month with the same 4" widescreen Retina Display as the iPhone 5. The newest Touch has a dual-core A5 processor and should begin shipping mid-October in 32 and 64 GB capacities.
The 4th generation (4G) iPod touch is available in a new 16 GB configuration. It has the same Retina Display and A4 processor as the iPhone 4. The big differences: a metal back, no mobile phone, no 3G wireless connectivity, no assisted GPS, and no digital compass.
In 2011, the iPod touch was virtually unchanged, except for a $30 price reduction on the 8 GB model and the availability of a white version. And it ships with iOS 5, which is free and can be installed on any 3G or 4G iPod touch.
2010 4G iPod touch.
iOS 4.3.5 is available for the 3G and 4G iPod touch for free. It is not compatible with the original iPod touch or 2G model, but it supports all later models.
The original iPod touch can be upgraded to iPhone OS 3.1 for $9.95 through the iTunes Store. The original iPod touch will then match most of the capabilities of the 2G model.
The iPod touch (often referred to as the iTouch) brings most of the iPhone's functionality to the iPod line, and you don't lose much beyond the phone and higher resolution camera. The iPod touch even looks a lot like the iPhone.
Multiple vendors are listed when within one dollar of lowest price.
