I purchased my Ipod Touch 8G in January just for fun and to see what all the fuss was about. I use a laptop and have wireless connectivity in my property. But I do not shop music on an Ipod and do not have "smart" cell phone. After using the Ipod Touch for a handful of months, all I can say is "WOW".
This device is like carrying a little computer in your pocket. I can connect to the world-wide-web wirelessly at residence and anyplace I can locate a public connection--library, cafe, etc. I check my email (read and compose), facebook, Meetups, Ravelry, take images and films, and with the Skype App, can video call my youngsters. I have develop into hooked on the Angry Birds game, which is fun to do whilst waiting anywhere. I have also downloaded audio books from my library to take with me when I travel. I knit and have any pattern I am working on loaded on my Touch so I don't be concerned about losing it. All this in a 2x4 inch little device I can carry with me everywhere.
I considered acquiring a wise phone instead, but Verizon's extra mandatory monthly price of $30/month turned me off. It would be nice to have online access exactly where ever I am, but I do not want it and do not want to spend $360/year for it. I like the fact that the Ipod Touch does not call for any further monthly fees.
I compared my Touch to my friends Ipad. It appears that my Touch does most everything the Ipad does, but the Touch is so significantly smaller.
My son has a Droid, which does what my Touch does plus it is his cell telephone. But games wear his battery down immediately. I do not have to worry about that because my phone is separate from my Touch. And I think my screen is a small larger and sharper.
If I required to be connected to the world-wide-web at all instances and have a cell phone too, I would quite possibly stick with a smart phone and pay the additional $30/month. But if you want a particularly versatile tool in a tiny package to carry with you, I highly suggest the Ipod Touch.
So significantly enjoyable!
This assessment is from someone who under no circumstances owned any Apple products just before, married, healthcare skilled, blackberry and palm TX owner (yeah I know, belongs in a museum), I was searching for a handheld web browser by wifi, no monthly fees for 2 years, with camera, video, and apps that i can use for my perform, and put in my pocket and it led me to this device. This is hence a entirely un-technical, layman's review.
1. Delivery time: I was supposed to obtain this September 10-14 with the normal shipping, but I got it nowadays, possibly given that I ordered it as soon as Steve Jobs finished presenting, so this deserves extra than five stars!
two. Dimensions/looks: I in fact prefer the "handling" of the larger and heavier 3rd gen that I borrowed, its all smudge now without any cover, but boy! this is the most lovely handheld device that I ever held, four stars for becoming smaller and lighter and smudgy.
3. Display: The retina display is astounding! Like reading from a glossy magazine, and yes you can't see the pixels! 5 stars!
four. Wifi: Sync with ATT wifi - no situation, wifi in fitness center - no problem, monthly fees - no dilemma! five stars!
5. World wide web Browsing: Challenging to kind in the addresses initially, but pages loads super quick (the longest was within thress-onethousand - all news channels), surfed the web with no complications,make pages bigger or smaller... this gets 5 stars as well.
6. Speed (Processor): this factor is super quick, web pages load inside three seconds, downloading apps within 30 secs, youtube in a flash, the e-mail attachment that opened in 1 minute in my laptop or computer took only ten seconds! 5 stars indeed!
7. Camera: extremely grainy, will not use it for any necessary event, only for swift-I-desire-a-camera moments, it will not replace my dSLR, but because it wasnt there in the prior gen, and I only use my dSLR and nothing at all else, this camera is still a bonus it gets 4 stars.
8. Apps for work/"operate": I already downloaded four quite beneficial apps for work for cost-free! plus 5 other no cost games for me and my 3 year old kid, the fact that I can now have apps with no an iphone/ipad is excellent, the truth that its free of charge is sweet! 5 stars!
8. Video: 720p HD! And I bought a Vado HD that does nothing at all else! Superior is up to par! five stars!
Overall, I have a device that surfs the net incredibly rather speedy, manages my e-mail, has a camera, terrific HD videocam, superb free of charge apps for operate, that looks spectacular, and is amazing to appear at, that I got 1 week early, what even more can I ask for?! Worth each and every penny and deserves five stars!
And it retailers and plays music too?! And has facetime?! And maps?! I really feel like I paid for a Toyota and got a Lexus!
Will purchase another a single for my kid so she doesnt have to borrow mine!
