iPod touch Features

Sleek new design
iPod touch feels even better in your hand thanks to the stunningly thin, contoured enclosure made of polished stainless steel.

Built-in speaker

A built-in speaker lets you hear the music, dialogue, and action without headphones, perfect for casual listening.

Rock ?n? run with Nike+

iPod touch offers built-in wireless support for Nike + iPod. All you need to do is insert a Nike + iPod sensor into your shoe and start running.

Volume controls

Volume buttons are built into the left side of iPod touch, giving you easy access to the most frequently used controls.

Longer battery life

Now you can keep on rocking (and watching and playing) even longer. Improved battery life means iPod touch provides up to 36 hours of audio playback or 6 hours of video playback ? enough to watch three or four movies between charges.


Touch your music.

Remember what it felt like to flip through your CD or record collection? Cover Flow brings that feeling back. Just turn iPod touch on its side and flick through your music to find the album you want to hear. Tap the cover to flip it over and display a track list. Tap again to start the music. Even view the lyrics while you?re listening.

A musical Genius

Say you?re listening to a song you really like and want to hear other tracks that go great with it. The new Genius feature finds the songs in your library that go great together and makes a Genius Playlist for you. You can listen to the playlist right away, save it for later, or even refresh it and give it another go. Count on Genius to create a mix you wouldn?t have thought of yourself.

Movies and TV shows

Carry hours of video with you and watch it on a crisp, clear 3.5-inch color widescreen display. Need ideas? From Hollywood blockbusters to independent favorites, there?s something for everyone at the iTunes Store. Download and watch movies with a few clicks. Prefer TV shows? Buy a single episode or an entire season?s worth all at once.

While watching your video, tap the display to bring up the onscreen controls. You can play/pause, view by chapter, and adjust the volume. You can also use the new volume controls on the left side of iPod touch. Want to switch between widescreen and full screen? Simply tap the display twice.

Re: iPod touch Features

Home Screen

Arrange the icons on your Home screen any way you want. Even move them to another Home screen. Create up to nine Home screens for quick access to the games and applications you download from the App Store and to your Safari Web Clips.

No matter where you are on iPod touch, one press of the Home button takes you to the Home screen. You can also take a shortcut from any Home screen back to your first Home screen by pressing the Home button.

Whenever you download an application from the App Store, a new icon appears on your Home screen. And if you check the same websites every day, just create Web Clips and you can access the sites directly from your Home screen with a single tap. Not happy with how they?re organized? Reorder them any way you want by dragging them around the screen.

Re: iPod touch Features

Safari
iPod touch is the only iPod with 802.11b/g wireless access to the web. Whenever you?re connected via Wi-Fi, you can access your favorite websites to read news, check scores, pay bills, and go shopping.

iPod touch syncs your bookmarks from your PC or Mac, so you can access favorite sites quickly. It has Google and Yahoo! search built in, so it?s easy to find what you?re looking for on the web.

Get a closer look at any web page by zooming in and out with a tap or a pinch of the Multi-Touch display. View websites in portrait or landscape. Rotate iPod touch 90 degrees and the website rotates, too.

If you check a website frequently ? a favorite newspaper, blog, or sports site ? why not create a Home screen icon for it? Make Web Clips with Safari, and your favorite sites are always just a tap away.
