iPod Touch With Retina Display
- Features Retina Display
- FaceTime Video Calling
- HD Video Recording and Game Centre
Apple’s new iPod Touch comes with Retina display, FaceTime video calling, HD video recording, Apple’s A4 chip, 3-axis gyro, iOS 4.1 and Game Center—all combined in the thinnest and lightest version of the device yet.
The new iPod touch features up to 40 hours of music playback and seven hours of video playback on a single battery charge. Apple’s Retina display has 960 x 640 pixels—four times as many pixels than before. The resulting 326 pixels per inch is so dense that the human eye is unable to distinguish individual pixels when iPod touch is held at a normal distance, making text, images and video look sharper, smoother and more realistic, says Apple.
With the new front-facing camera and mic, iPod touch users can make FaceTime video calls over Wi-Fi. With a tap of the new FaceTime app, iPod Touch users can call other new iPod Touch or iPhone 4 users to see what their friends are up to, share important moments like the first day of school and even show others what they are seeing by switching to the rear-facing camera. The rear-facing camera on iPod touch is designed for HD video recording. Users can easily capture HD video wherever they are and share it via email, MobileMe and YouTube.
With the iMovie app, users can combine movie clips, add dynamic transitions and themes and include photos and music right on their iPod touch. Users can buy and download the app for $5.99 inc GST through the App Store right on their iPod touch.
Apple’s A4 chip provides iPod touch users with exceptional processor and graphics performance along with long battery life. With Game Center, iPod touch users can challenge and play friends or be matched automatically with new opponents. Game Center lets iPod touch users showcase their scores and achievements and discover new games their friends are playing.
With the App Store on iPod touch, users have access to the world’s largest catalogue of apps with over 250,000 apps, including over 65,000 game and entertainment titles to choose from. Music and entertainment lovers can now easily access iTunes® Ping directly from their new iPod touch.
iTunes Ping lets you follow your favourite artists and friends to discover the music they’re talking about, listening to and downloading. iPod touch users also have the entire iTunes Store at their fingertips, giving them instant access to the world’s largest catalogue of music, TV shows and movies. The new iPod touch comes with iOS 4.1, the newest version of Apple’s mobile operating system. iOS 4.1 enables new features like FaceTime video calling, multitasking, folders and Game Center.
