Summary: The iPod Touch 4th Generation is a great little device, there’s no doubt about that as I’m sure you know by their popularity.
The price is a drawback though, personally I think it’s a bit overpriced, especially since it’s only 8gig and not expandable.
Pros: +Lots of apps in iTunes to choose from, +Great portable gaming system, +Excellent graphics, +Volume is loud, +Thin and lightweight
Cons: -iTunes is horrible software, -Camera not the greatest, -Can’t uninstall apps from Apple, -Fingerprint magnet
Conclusion: My grousing about the buttons and the still camera resolution is somewhat ludicrous in the face of all the advancements obvious in the fourth-generation iPod touch. Apple has managed to make their best portable media player even better, with features that the faithful have been demanding in addition...
Pros: AirPlay: Coolest. Feature. Ever., Retina display brings stellar quality to all applications, FaceTime video calling to iPhone 4 and other iPod touch 4G's, over Wi-Fi... for free!
Cons: The still camera is a terrific addition, but not at only 960-by-720 quality, How small is too small when it comes to edge-mounted buttons?
Excerpt: Back in early June, when the iPhone 4 was unveiled to a rapturous audience, my immediate reaction was “If this is the new iPhone, the next iPod Touch is going to be amazing!” Fast forward a few months and here it is: the 4th generation iPod Touch actually does sport most of the iPhone’s major...
Pros: Retina Display is unnervingly sharp., Built in mic and cameras., Almost everything an iPhone can do at a fraction of the price.
Cons: No GPS., No LED flash., Photo quality is nothing to write home about.

Pros: Small & lightweight, Extremely responsive, Razor sharp screen, Intuitive interface, Dual cameras including front facing camera, Great gaming, Excellent battery life, Good WiFi performance thanks to 802.11n, Wifi + mic + Skype app = "poor mans"
Cons: Glossy screen reflects lots of ambient light, Not the same IPS panel as the new iPhone, Screen & body are a fingerprint magnet, Requires iTunes to load media on to it, Low resolution cameras, Storage is not upgradeable, Not compatible with 3rd gen cases, 802.11n is only 2.4Ghz, not 5Ghz support, ...
Conclusion: This is the device iPod Touch users have been waiting for. Hailed as “the iPhone without the phone” the new iPod Touch 4th Gen has HD video recording capabilities, Wi-Fi, a superior display, and all the features of an iPhone 4 without a contract. This is a must-have item for any gadget fanatic.
Pros: Retina Display, 960-by-640-pixel resolution at 326 pixels per inch., Two cameras! Video recording, HD (720p) up to 30 frames per second with audio; still photos (960 x 720) with back camera. VGA-quality photos and video up to 30 frames per second with the front camera., Full iOS4 compatibility, F...
Cons: Mirrored rear fingerprints easily., Easy to cover rear camera lens with your finger., Pricing structure seems strange: 8GB is $229, next step up is 32GB for $299. 64GB is $399.
