iPod Touch review

A pple, an American company founded on April 1st, 1976, is renowned for its Macintosh computers and iPod music players. Many current music players are capable of doing a lot more than just playing music. And the latest Apple iPod touch is not an exception. It is a full media player equipped with innovative functions such as Internet, WiFi and an option to play YouTube videos for example. Enough reasons for LetsGoMobile to test the iPod touch and offer you an extensive review.

Apple Touch - Retail box

The iPod we tested has an internal memory of 16GB (14.8GB available). An 8GB version is also obtainable. The Apple iPod Touch came in a surprisingly compact box; only inches larger than the iPod Touch itself. The box contains a quick guide in 6 languages, Apple earplugs, a USB cable, an iPod connector with a transparent hook, a polishing cloth for cleaning the iPod and of course the iPod itself. The iPod Touch comes with a fully loaded battery, so it is not necessary to charge the battery before using the iPod Touch. Even the date and time were set correctly on the iPod Touch we received. The dimensions of the Apple iPod Touch are: 110 x 61.8 x 8mm.

Apple Touch - Main menu

The iPod Touch has only one dedicated button at its disposal, just as the iPhone, with one function to return to the main menu or in case screen deactivation is on, to activate the screen of the Apple iPod in combination with a sliding movement on the Touch screen. The Touch screen works flawless and fast. The main menu shows eleven icons, four of which are displayed for playing music, videos, iTunes and pictures. The remaining seven icons are for the Safari web browser, YouTube videos, agenda, contacts, clock, calculator and general settings. Furthermore the battery indicator is shown on the screen in the main menu. The time is rendered in every menu, in other words, it is always visible.
