iPod Touch (4th Gen/FaceTime) 8, 32, 64 GB

The iPod touch 4 gen continues the same more-than-a player but less-than-a-phone line. It was released in pair with the iPhone 4 and shares an Apple A4 chip, a 3.5″ “Retina” screen (960 x 640, 326 ppi, not IPS) and an integrated cam for making video calls via FaceTime. But it lacks a 3G/EDGE module, and consequently, A-GPS and digital compass. The iPod touch 4th gen supports some sweet features like iCloud, iMessage, iMovie editing. As to hardware, the device has a 3-axis gyroscope, an in-built speaker and an in-built mike as well as a front VGA camera for video calls. The rear 0.70-megapixel camera with no flash is capable of recording 720p video. The battery life was enhanced up to 40 hours of music playback and 7 hours of video playback. TheiPod touch 4th gen is available in three capacities: 8, 32 and 64 GB. (more…)

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. Equally, a microphone, a speaker, or a camera doesn’t fit in this really small iPod nano. The fully charged iPod nano 6th gen supports 24 hours of music playback (this iPod can’t play video). It is available in two capacities (8GB and 16 GB) and seven colors each: silver, graphite, blue, green, orange, pink and (PRODUCT) RED Special Edition. (more…)

iPod Shuffle 4th Gen 2 Gb VoiceOver

iPod Shuffle 4th Gen 2 Gb VoiceOver: The public being less than enthusiastic about the iPod shuffle 3rd Generation, Apple engineers turned to the 2nd generation design with clickable ring buttons. But iPod Shuffle 4th Gen was smaller than the second model and preserved the VoiceOver function from the iPod Shuffle 3rd generation with action button on top. The player can speak the name of songs, artists and playlists in 14 languages and boasts the Genius Mixer function as well. That is, Genius can compile a playlist picking up similar songs. The housing is offered in five colors — silver with a black click wheel ring and blue, orange, pink, and green with a white click wheel ring. There’s only one 2 Gb version for all colors with battery life up to 15 hours. (more…)
