Like the first three iPhones, each successive generation has brought minor tweaks to the external housing and modest upgrades to the internal components.
Excerpt: Apple 's iPod touch has had a radical makeover, with the fourth-generation Touch coming in the wake of the widely praised iPhone 4 and offering some of the same features.

Excerpt: With the recent refresh of Apple's iPod range, the iPod touch has undoubtedly asserted itself at the top of the tree. With the nano stripping down, there appears to be a hole in the middle of what was once Apple's MP3 player offering.

Pros: Display is sensational, the App Store, user interface, versatility, build quality

Summary: The fourth generation of the iPod Touch is, in a word, brilliant. It’s almost everything you love about the iPhone 4, but thinner, half the price and contract-free. FaceTime video calls The iPod Touch used to be the iPhone without a phone. Well, now it’s got one – kind of – thanks to a front-facing VGA camera and Apple’s FaceTime app for video calling. Fourth-gen Touch users can call each other, and iPhone 4 users, for free providing they have a Wi-Fi connection.
