iPod Touch: Up Close and Personal

iPod Touch: Up Close and Personal

I got my hands on the new iPod Touch yesterday. And despite some minor shortcomings, the device lives up to its hype. Check the details and shots after the jump.

iPod Touch Review

Two of the most attractive features of the iPod Touch for me are the wide screen video player (something you can hook up inside your car in lieu of those NextBase players) and the full featured Safari browser (which allows you to surf and comfortably read blogs via wifi without opening up your laptop or desktop computer).

    Thanks for the review. I’ve been debating for weeks now if I should s(h)ell out and buy this ;) One more step closer to yes =)

    However being a developer, I might wait till 3rd party apps are available again.

    That is awesome Yuga. Thanks for the review. Too bad the price there is not the same here in Cebu.

    I browsed our SM City here for some iPhones and they costs a whopping 40k. To add injury to pain, that price is for the 8GB iPhone.

    What a big difference!

    @McBilly I think you’ve mistaken the iPod touch with an iPhone. iPhones do cost at that rate..

    Hey, can a borrow it and try my iPhone apps?

  5. Dusty says:


    the ipod touch can’t install 3rd party apps yet. the new firmware have disabled them.

    A new jailbreak is in the works but it seems all the apps have to be recompiled.

    Can you compose e-mail on this thing? I assume you could access gmail/yahoo mail via wifi.

    It’s useless if you can’t write notes on it.

  11. Nice review, short but comprehensive.

    What I like best on iPod touch is the ability to surf the net using Safari thru wifi. Another thing is the YouTube service thru wifi.

  12. Dusty says:
