Apple iPod Touch 2G

Apple iPod Touch (2G):

In terms of ipod, there are always the same design as successful and in line with such a high-end player. Yet if you look closer you notice that the back rounded to hide a very light weight of 0.5 mm from the previous version. In the end, the iPod Touch portable video is the end of the time this did not prevent him from now on to include a loudspeaker. Not surprisingly, it does not expect miracles and delivers a sharp and suffocated. Anyway, it's a pretty nice addition to watching several short videos. The grip makes it more secure, the iPod Touch is large enough to handle easily with one hand and small enough to fit in your pocket. Finally, a new button also appears on the side to adjust the volume directly without going through the touch screen. It saves the battery while listening because the screen can be turned off.


Features
  • Memory: 32 GB flash (available in 8 and 16 GB)
  • Display: 3.5-inch touchscreen (480 x 320 pixels)
  • Formats: MPEG-4 (H.264), MP3, AAC (DRM), Audible, Lossless, AIFF, WAV, JPEG
  • Transfer: USB 2.0
  • Size / weight: 110 x 61.8 x 8.5 mm/115 g
  • Autonomy measured: 6:20 video


The Player

To be honest, the iPod Touch is our favorite player. Yet it does not first end of a comparative portable video, blamed limitations unforgivable from Apple that locks his star player to death. First complaint, it is impossible to read a video format other than the MPEG-4. Exit is the DivX and Xvid unless acquire software to make a long conversion of all your videos. In fact, iTunes, which is also mandatory for transfers, is not capable, an attic! Of course, Apple wants to fight against piracy that is to his credit but it will then review its trade policy. I do not know about you but I find it hard to see me impose a format for me to buy high-priced movies on iTunes.

Second limitation is still difficult to justify, it is not possible to use the storage space on the iPod Touch to pick up documents as you would with an external hard drive or a simple USB key. Some will say that Apple intends to protect his player from hackers, but in reality, they need not look so embarrassed that this and the cracks are everywhere on the Internet. Again, these are the genuine users who are turkeys of the joke.

Even more comprehensive

Now that we have emptied our bags, it is time to dwell on the main features of the iPod Touch and there, we must admit that Apple fills us. Indeed, the new software version releases this jewel technology to the point that one wonders how it was to be content with the previous version. Thus, it is now possible to download their emails with the push mode via the WiFi connection, and to meet directly with the virtual keyboard on the touchscreen. A note that once again demonstrates his complete mastery of WiFi that activates almost instantly if needed. It is of course essential to navigate through the Internet browser that is a model. Indeed, thanks to technology and multi point to the accelerometer, the screen automatically switches to landscape mode and you can zoom in leisure pinching your fingers on the screen. Difficult to make it more user-friendly.



No more need to crack

Other big news, Apple finally opens (somewhat) to third-party software. No more need to "jail break" your iPod Touch to install software and a variety. Thanks to Apple Store, we have easy access to thousands of free and commercial applications. With a few clicks on the screen, the program automatically installs a new icon appears on the main interface. If it does not change with its beautiful icons clearly identifiable, it can now be customized. Simply press on an icon to see all agitated as victims of an earthquake. Remains to move the finger to the position where you want. If you install many programs, they are spread over several pages, going from one to another very easily by scanning the screen on both sides. Note that the iPod Touch is also a games console through the Apple Store too. And in the absence of buttons, the accelerometer, which will act as gamepad.



For almost all ...

Of course, the iPod Touch is also a player, an iPod in the tradition of Apple. Besides the classic navigation by artist, album or genre, it gives the best of himself with the Cover Flow to select an album through the covers with your finger. By the same token, it is easy to move from one photo to another in the viewer that benefits greatly from the beautiful touch screen. This restores the details and brilliant colors. Finally, all is not lost for the first buyers of the iPod Touch which would also take advantage of new features and not just a multimedia player that seems restricted to his successor. Indeed, Apple in its generous offer to move to the 2.X version of its software iPod Touch via iTunes. Side of the coin, it is not really an act of generosity to the first customers who pay in some way the pieces. Therefore discharge of $ 11 to release the full power of its iPod Touch first generation.

Re: Apple iPod Touch (2G)

Always more

Apple does not change his habits and found the same earphones that fit all the players of the mark. Unfortunately they are easily identifiable in the street to smile among members of the community connected Mac, they are far to honor the musical qualities of the iPod Touch. It might be content to listen to a few pieces but nothing beats a real headphones to really enjoy all the subtleties of your best songs.



The iPod Touch is now available in three versions of 8, 16 or 32 GB starting from $ 319. This latest version is worth it to $ 544 but in return you can carry several thousand songs, or nearly 40 hours of video. You can see what you need. If you change the content of your player, you can settle for the 8GB Finally, the autonomy of the iPod Touch is excellent including video. Indeed, we were able to watch a film loop for more than six hours which is particularly good. It is even better audio especially if you turn on the little screen.



Conclusion

The iPod Touch is unquestionably the multimedia Walkman of the most exciting moment. Sexy with the size of wasp, it is controlled through an easy interface and unparalleled touch screen which has multi point accuracy , in short it is a legendary ipod. The new version of its software opens the doors of the email push mode and finally allows the installation of third-party software, but its price is equal to its performance.


Price: $ 545
