4G iPod Touch: Retina Display & HD Camera




Just moments ago, Apple unveiled the 4th generation iPod Touch which features a retina display and 2 cameras (one for FaceTime and one for HD video recording).


iPod Touch 4th Generation
3.5-inch multi-touch display @ 960×640 pixel resolution
1GHz A4 chip w/ 512 MB RAM
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n (802.11n is 2.4GHz only)
Bluetooth 2.1 w/ EDR
Three-axis Gyro
Accelerometer
Ambient light sensor
HD 720p camera @ 30fps w/ audio
VGA front-facing camera for Face Time

Apple claims the new iPod Touch can do 7 hours of video playback and 40 hours of audio. With the CPU and RAM upgrade, it looks like Apple is dead serious in making the iPod Touch a portable gaming device (Apple even claims it’s bigger than the PSP and Nintendo DS combined).

Apple iPod Touch 4G official price list:

iPod Touch 8GB – Php12,490
iPod Touch 32GB – Php15,990
iPod Touch 64GB – Php21,990

Prices are inclusive of VAT, duty and levies. Items ship in about 4 to 5 weeks (according to Philippine Apple Online Store).

    Worth it ba itong ganitong prices? Ilang android powered phones na ang mabibili mo sa 64GB unit? Tsk Tsk. Pero in fairness naman, tempting sya. Ang layo na ng narating ng technology. What’s next?

  2. jokenvill says:

    when will it be available in the philippines? like in the malls?

  3. kim says:

    parang iPhone lang :D wla nga lang sim.. peo sa 16g cguo pwd pa ang price.

  4. neon says:

    ilang megapixel ung back camera? parang sa ipod nano before?

  5. darn…. nakakalaway naman ito. i want this as a gift this december.. one of my wish list

  6. Jamby says:

    Sorry for the ignorance..what’s the Face Time for?? Video chat if you’re connected sa Internet??? Para don po ba yon?

  7. Rain says:

    It will be available 2 to 3 weeks from now just like before. It has retina display which means it’s almost like your “eyesight” and it will be hard for you to see the pixels. Yeah, it’s like iPhone that has’nt got Phone Features such as SMS, voice call etc. The Facetime is for you to be able to chat or make a video call, picture yourself for a better view,(i believe you can use Skype with this). It is better to wait ’till December for you to have it on a less price. It will be a Merry Merry Christmas for someone who will have this one!
    (Specially iPhone 4)

  8. Rain says:

    Oh and one thing, It will take a long time before it can be Jailbroken! (SAD)

  9. superdan says:

    abe, kailan yan available locally? kasi i’ve just gotten my hsbc card and may promo sila for ipod touch. wondering if pwedeng eto yung i-claim ko. :)

    Once again, Steve Jobs proves that he is the thinnest liar alive. Why must he insert BS like owning 50% of the portable gaming market, even more than Sony and Nintendo combined? If your basis is the number of units sold, then probably yes, the iPod touch sold more units than the PSP and the DS. But you really don’t have to use your brain that much (unless you’re a fanboy) to figure out that the games on the iPod Touch/iPhone platform are no way near the quality of games for the PSP and the DS.

  11. John says:

    Very nice update, but as expected, they gimped it a little so as not to fully compete with the iPhone.

    No GPS
    No compass
    No camera flash
    Rear camera still image resolution is just 960×720, not like the 5MP one in the iPhone 4

    But still, I think many potential iPhone 4 buyers will be settling for an iPod Touch instead.

  12. nitecrawler says:

    According to wired.com gadgetlab, back camera is 1megapixel only as compared to iPhone 4’s 5 megapixel

    Put Skype or make calls via Google Voice, it’s the closest thing to getting an iPhone. Sans the SMS capabilities.

  14. jokenvill says:

    im so excited and im going to buy this in the end of this month…. but im still confuse between this and the htc wildfire….=(

  15. jobeck says:

    sana nilagyan ng 3G, like the Ipad. panalo na sana.

  16. Jon says:

    Surprisingly cheap. I thought it would be costing an arm, leg, and maybe your soul. LOL. Good thing this ain’t anywhere close to the price of the iPhone 4G. I’m still content with my 2nd Gen iPod too, so no upgrade anytime soon.

  17. Joshua M says:

    @Jamby In its first debut it is used for video chat/calling, but since it has its own API alot of apps can be made using the camera.

  18. Sanctuarian06 says:

    Hows the bluetooth? It can transfer music files? Or for headset purpose only. Tsk.

  19. islacom says:

    mga bagong laruan na naman ito mula sa kompanya ng mansanas

    making our lives more happier!!!

    Facetime for the less fortunate who cannot afford the iPhone 4

  20. Joshua M says:

    @nitecrawler yeah its kinda disappointing with 960×720 and no flash. but still it’s image sensor is great quality with HDR and stuff the image size is just not as big but who cares? people will just use it for FB pics which also size down photos so its just right IMO.

  21. Alvin says:

    Again. Apple has made history by creating another failure after the iPhone 4G. This time, Apple doesn’t have the WOW surprise factor…i just said “okay, same old product strategy” “same features, they just used the A4 chips and additional ram” to boost performance but there’s nothing really new. Is this the end of Apple’s dominance in the music hardware business? I certainly hope so if this trend is what i’ll be seeing in the next few years…really sad.

  22. Jamby says:

    @Joshua M
    I see..tnx for the info.

  23. Rommel A. says:

    This is a sure candidate of my Christmas gadget wishlist.Big upgrade ala Iphone 4, you can get a gadget with A4 processor, retina display, HD video, near console type of games and face time with a price of Php 12.5k.I am still waiting for Sony to counterpunch with their PSP2 ( if the rumors are true and if will release before the yearend). I love my Ipod Touch 2g but will see in Christmas if I upgrade this or not.

  24. h20 says:

    Is the screen scratch resistant like the iPhone 4?

  25. JunAlquis says:

    yess I have been waiting for this since I got my Ipod touch 2nd gen haha

  26. kill3rfill3r says:

    sulit na price para don sa 32gb

  27. Jay says:

    @Jamby
    Facetime = Video Call over Wi-Fi, kung may wireless router ka at home you can “Facetime” your friends who also have a new generation of ipod touch and/or an iphone 4.

    @Alvin
    Well that’s how Apple harvest their $$$ from the money tree. Sometimes you don’t need the “wow” factor to sell products, instead an intuitive product that’s easy to use (UI).

    I don’t think it’s the end of Apple’s dominance, since pa mura ng pa mura ang price nila compared to last year’s and madami pa din naman na “clones”. When people grew tired of clones they will buy the original one, with or without cash on hand. Uutang pa para makabili.

    Anyway what do you not expect the ipod touch would do?
    It is still a great touch music player which enthralls the youth.

    You cannot efficiently sell a product with powerpacked with features.
    See what happened to Nokia N-Series.

  29. Fleeb says:

    The previous generation iPod Touch’s are prototypes. After a few years of closed beta testing (many thanks to the *early* adopters), this should be version 1. They are right, this is the iPod Touch we are looking for.

    Version 2 will come after 3 more iterations.

  30. badnobe says:

    0.7 megapixel? di man lang 2 or 3.

  31. Joshua M says:

    @badnobe If you know how good the image sensor of its camera then the size of pixels is not a bother. shooting a video of 720p is no joke!

  32. Joshua M says:

    And besides 960×720 isn’t a bad size for just sharing photos and be glad for the 720p video, lol great 720p cams aren’t cheap

  33. h20 says:

    Is the screen scratch resistant?

  34. Joshua M says:

    @h20 yep, but still it depends on how you torture it

  35. Justine says:

    is it able to take stills? Kahit low resolution? Possible?

  36. Joshua M says:

    @Justine yes at 960×720

  37. RaGe Einzeln says:

    @blitzkrieg : I agree…

    the only thing there that’s good is the HD recording…

  38. CB says:

    Magpapabili nalang ako sa US, because the 32GB would costs only $299, so that around Php13,500 as compared to Php15,990 sa resellers dito sa Pinas.

  39. Mac Carlos says:

    the rear camera sucks kapag magpipicture ka lang. 0.7mp lang. tss. magaandroid phone nalang ako sa price na yan. :)tanong po. nakita ko sa site ng apple. $299 ang 8gb at 32gb model? bakit pareho price?

  40. manong says:

    i heart ipod touch! same features lang w/ iphone 4.. both can’t make calls! pero 1/4 lng ng price…

    THIS will cannibalize iphone4 sales… combine this w/ a cheap celfone ala nokia 1208 and u r good!

    imo, the camera is sufficient if u r only viewing it on its 3.5″ screen. sabi nga sa GSMARENA, ung pictures ng iphone 4 pag na-view mo sa 24″ monitor.. PANGET!

  41. Mac vs PC says:

    the best ipod touch gets better… kulang na lang ilagay nila yung isa sa peborit game ko sa PSP na “God of War” then ayus na pati yung Tekken katapat nya “Street Fighter” sa iPod Touch panalo din bitin nga lang at kulang kulang

    mas nakakapagod maglaro ng Need for Speed sa PSP at DSi kumpara sa iPod Touch

    i must say yung game quality ang pag-uusapan pwedeng pareho lang or mas higit pa compared sa psp or dsi, nagkakaiba lang yan sa game experience and playability

    gaming advantages:
    iPod Touch 4g = may accelerometer / gyroscope / buttonless
    PSP & DSi = walang accelerometer /gyrospoce / may buttones

    internet browsing:
    iPod Touch 4g = madali yang (touch touch touch)
    PSP & DSi = pahirapan (press press press) left down right up

    at madami pang iba…hehehe

    Wag muna tayong magmadali bumili. Baka meron ding technical issues to. Antayin nyo na lang ang full review ni sir abe…hehehe! :D

  48. Rem says:

    Bakit parang ang taas naman ng expectations ng iba sa iPod Touch? Diba it’s a portable music player/game console just like Samsung’s Yepp. For that price palagay ko sulit na eh. May Camera na, iPhone 4 pa yung features except for Voice Calls and SMS. Pero parang masyadong agressive yung Apple ngayon pati Game Console sector plano nilang ma dominate? Para sakin mas maganda siguro kapag touch screen plus hardware keys like the DSi. Hintayin ko na lang siguro yung 3DS. :)

  49. Joshua M says:

    @Rem – Iba kasi experience ng the way gaming flows on iOS devices, anybody can create a game and gain profit so pagandahan ng games at believe me papagandahin talga nila e sa consoles ngaun ang mga sikat may history e square enix, konami, EA, etc so sila lang ang mgaganda e matagal bago mag release so mabagal marketing. and limited lang sa button ang consoles. Apple counters with gyro, accelerometer, game center for competition, touch and developers. and yup sulit na ung price, isipin nyo nalang magkano ang 720p camera ngayon

    @manong not the best quality pag ordianry 5mp cam because of the low quality image sensor
    “sabi nga sa GSMARENA, ung pictures ng iphone 4 pag na-view mo sa 24″ monitor.. PANGET!” – dipende po yan sa pag kuha mo at how clean your lens is

    @Mac Carlos – $229 on 8Gb not $299

  50. razorous says:

    This is what I want for Christmas!!!

  51. JunAlquis says:

    good games like paid ones in iPod touch 2g is really good so I wonder how great gaming will be on this improved device?

    i’ll get this one as a gift for myself this xmas.. :)

  53. markzterr says:

    I’m so disappointed, WiMax ang iniexpect kong i-aadd na feature sa iTouch 4th Gen at iPhone 4..

  54. clyde says:

    @markzterr – if there’s one gadget na lalagyan nila ng wimax it wud probably be the iPad… the iPod touch is really meant for games…

    well the iPod touch has evolved so greatly wala akong maicocomplain… the factimee feature is a nice addition… i can now buy my parents an iPod touch tapos we can facetime kasi nasa abroad ako… mejo choppy kasi pag skype or yahoo…

  55. Mac Carlos says:

    @Joshua M

    its kinda expensive. thanks. i checked the website again. Maybe im hallucinating that time. LOL

  56. Ian says:

    Sulit na ang price ng ipod touch 4. sa mga naghahanap pa ng features like 3G or wimax, bumili na lang kayo ng mobile router or kung may nokia phone kayo na may 3g and wifi, use joikuspot app para maging mobile router para makapagwifi na si friendly ipod touch 4 at makapagfacetime anytime/anywhere!

    Nice job Steve!!! Sana walang issue ito. hehe..

  57. mr.bogus says:

    buy iphone 3gs than this…

    facetime lang.. wla namang 3g…

    mabuhay ang jail break!!!

  58. you can now record HD video and do video calling over WiFi for the same price as the last model. Or don’t buy it. But don’t rate something you’ve never touched 1 star because the sensor was not designed to be used as a still photo camera. Neither was the sensor on the pocket sized Flip Video Camera and people spend $100+ on that device even though it does NOTHING ELSE.

  59. Jay-BUYING-IPOD-TOUCH-4G says:

    Tagal ko ng naghahanap neto… Please email me kung sino may alam na may stock. I’m ready to buy

    “The ergonomic layout of it doesn’t allow users to grip it in a way that allows the photographer to take the best pictures possible.”

    “There is no image stabilization whatsoever in the iPhone 4. Not even digital!”

    http://thephoblographer.com/2010/07/06/field-test-apple-iphone-4-camera/

    so panget talaga iphone 4 camera di ba? ipod touch 4g ka na lang..

  64. hackintosh says:

    The price is alright now, but I’m sure the price will be doubled when it hits the malls.

  65. Joshua M says:

    @hackintosh those are official Apple pricing. Get one at the Apple store or a Mac Power Center

  66. Toshi says:

    in Power mac center, P16990 yung 32GB eh dapat 15k lang…

  70. Richard says:

    i applied an HSBC card just for this. The HSBC guy i talked to on their Enterprise Bldg. Branch in Ayala says we can use the promo for the Ipod Touch 4.

    I went to the MAC store in Green 3 and they said they’re not sure if we can use it on an Ipod Touch 4.
    What they’re sure is that the HSBC promo can be used for the older one.

    haaay wala pa rin ako makita sa Net na nakakuha na ng Ipod Touch 4 via the HSBC promo .

    Just got the iPOD touch 4 a few days ago and I’m pleasantly surprised.

    Some info if you guys want to purchase the said item: I got the 64GB model for Php17,500 at Game Extreme (Bridgeway shop at Virramall, Greenhills). So far it is the cheapest deal I’ve found in the Metro. The next cheapest is at Digital Hub (64gb is Php 17,800) but so far no models have been delivered yet.

    The ipod touch 4 comes with Apple OS 4.1. Am contemplating on jailbreaking it as Limera1n from the iPOD Dev Team already hacked the version. Has anyone tried this yet? Any problems encountered?

    http://www.calvinshub.com/2010/10/how-to-jailbreak-ios-4-1-using-limera1n/

    Thanks!

  86. Dee says:

    Hello. So kailangan talagang ipa-jailbreak iTouch 4G ko noh? Hmmm san kaya? Pwede ba jailbreak nalang online? :)

  87. Mike B. says:

    @Dee- I jailbroke my iPOD touch a few days ago using Limera1n. The new version works on iOS 4.1 (that’s the latest version). So far no problems. The instructions are on the link I posted.

  88. Rain says:

    Guys you can Jailbreak your iPod Touch 4g using “Limerain” or “Greenp0ison” (O is written as 0 “zero”) I’ve tried both on my Touch 4 and both worked well. I’d be glad to jailbreak yours for free! (i’ll just instruct you via mail.)Merry Christmas everyone!

  89. razorous says:

    Where else other than Digital Hub and Game Extreme could you get iPod Touch 4G 64GB? 17+K seems really affordable!!! ..on Apple’s Website, it costs 22K but gives you free engraving… is that engrave or purchasing in Mac/apple store really worth it?

  90. angel says:

    does any one knows here where I can buy iPod touch na less than 10K? should i buy the 3rd or the 4th generation?

  91. ithons26 says:

    I bought my ipod touch 4g 32 gb for only 13,200k at games & gadgets at cyberzone megamall. Loving the games and Facetime! :)

  92. shibito says:

    ithons26<<<< sinungaling naman to… katatawag ko lang sa G&G megamall, P13,900 daw!

  93. ithons26 says:

    @shibito-hindi ako sinungaling! pakita ko pa sayo resibo eh. bought mine 2 weeks ago. because of the demand siguro kaya nag-taas sila ng priced.

  94. vinoe says:

    guys kung gusto nyo makamura punta kayo sa megamall sa cyberzone.. 13,000 lang yung 32GB basta hanapin nyo lang yung store dun..

  95. razorous says:

    Meron pa bang store na mabibilhan ng 64gb mamaya? Rush lang..Digital hub of stock na :(

  96. zner says:

    does this have a recessed headphone jack also like the iphone?

  97. Drabern says:

    guys ask ko lang kung pwede ba itong ipod touch sa video call? kasi diba ung facetime ipod to ipod lang yun?.. panu pag kausap mo laptop ang gamit??
    thanks guys!

  98. razorous says:

    Dati kasi, fring had all Skype services, voice, chat video…kaya pwede yung mobile to pc video calls. Now hindi na, blinock na ng Skype yung services nila for fring…but still pwedeng ipod/iphone to any mobile capable of installing fring, fring to fring, fring to gtalk, etc. I think Skype is about to come up with their own video call app for iphone/ipods/androids/etc coming Q1 2011. Cant wait!!!

  99. razorous says:

    Available na pala, just today. ;-)
