iPod – Full information, models, tech specs

Conceived by the Apple Inc. as portable digital media player and multi-purpose pocket computer which can serve as external data storage device, the first iPod was released in October, 2001. iPod can use iTunes software and third parties software to transfer data, such as music, videos, photos, e-mail settings, and so on to the computers supporting these features.

The iPod line came from Apple’s digital hub, when the electronic giant decided to join the market of personal portable music players. Apple’s hardware engineering chief Jon Rubinstein assembled thus a team of engineers to design the iPod, but Apple did not develop the iPod software entirely in-house. It used instead PortalPlayer’s reference platform for their first iPod.

iPod Touch MC 2nd Gen Jailbreak-proof

The iPod touch MC 2nd gen has a new jailbreak-proof bootrom, at least, Apple engineers declared it to be.

Apple corporation change В to C, that’s where MC in the model title is from. The model got a different marketing as well. Rather than a portable player, the iPod touch 2nd gen was advertised as the smallest portable PC with web access and the gaming device. Due to that fact, some vendors marketed this iPod as the third generation model, which is completely wrong. The iPod touch 2nd gen mimics iPhone 3G with its chromed steel back and rounded corners but lacks cellular mode, A-GPS and in-built camera. It’s thicker but lighter than the iPod touch 1st gen and sports a silver front trim.

iPod Nano 6th Gen 1.54” Mulititouch

The iPod nano 6th gen has been changed radically in design and technologies. In shape it looks more like an iPod shuffle down to the clip, but preserved the aluminum and glass case of its predecessor. The same goes for a built-in integrated pedometer and FM radio with “live pause” feature as well as Nike+iPod, VoiceOver, and “Shake to Shuffle” functions. The smallest touch-controlled iPod ever has a 1.54″ color TFT display (240 x 240, 220 ppi), supports a multitouch interface on an iOS-inspired operating system but obviously cannot run either iOS applications or games compatible with previous iPod model.

The iPod nano 4th gen is slimmer and thinner than its’ predecessor.

iPod Nano 5th Gen with Camera 8GB 16 GB
