Apple iPod Touch with iOS4

September 2, 2010

I never ever think that Apple is/was innovative… the things that they introduce, you get them in other gadgets ages ago, the only difference is they have the fans to recognise them as good things to have.
Today I say Apple is good. I see the new iPod Touch as a next generation walkie talkie… What am I talking about?

“Video calling is in full effect on iPod touch. Now your friends can see what you’re up to, when you’re up to it. With the tap of a button, you can wave “hi” while standing in a foreign country, get a second opinion on a pair of boots, or have your friends bear witness to the everyday pranks, bets and dares they otherwise might have missed — new iPod touch to new iPod touch or iPhone 4 over Wi-Fi. And come face to face with even more fun.”

Good stuff!

Finally, FM in an apple! Nano now comes with FM radio built-in as well as a feature called Live Pause. This is similar to time-shifting found in digital video recorders and is achieved by recording live radio once you hit pause, so you can go right back to where you left off.

Another significance is a camera added to the iPod nano. This records video at VGA (640 x 480) resolution in H.264 format.
The new iPod nano will cost S$228 and S$288 for the 8GB and 16GB versions.
