This was the most expected gadget of Apple’s iPod Event 2009. It resulted in the most disappointed media player that featured at the conference. Why? Because it sucks. Seriously. Steve Jobs & Co. were able to integrate a camera into the tini, tiny, tyni, tyny iPod Nano, but they weren’t able to put it into the huge new iPod Touch? That’s just wrong. The iPod Touch is such a wonderful device, but the lack of a camera with video recording capabilities makes it a crappy handheld and Apple better fix this situation soon.
In the Apple keynote the new iPod Touch 3G is present. It seems like the device features the same processor as the iPhone 3GS as it provides OpenGL 2.0 support. Again: the rumors said that the new iPod Touch will have a built-in camera, but it doesn’t have one.
The new iPod Touch is a great iPod that allows users to listen to user-compiled playlists, while featuring a 3.5-inch screen. This can be considered a pocket computer as it comes packed with built-in WiFi that allows users to surf the Internet, send and receive emails, update FaceBook, AIM instant messaging, but also a portable game player thanks to the so many playable games that are available at the App Store.
You probably guessed that the iPod Touch G3 comes pre-installed with the iPod Touch 3.1 Software ( iPhone OS 3.1.1 ) that features P2P gaming, and copy/paste among others. The new iPod Touch will be available in three versions 8GB / 32GB / 64GB for at prices of $199 / $299 / $399.
That’s all. Yeah: no camera. I was not kidding. I was hoping that Apple did that when forgot to mention the camera. Too bad. I’m just disappointed.
