It’s that time of the year when everyone is looking out to buy the perfect gift for their loved ones. And when it comes to technology, the options are limitless. Be it a phone, laptop, mp3 player and now even tablet, choosing the right gift for your loved ones is very important.
Thanks to Apple for their amazing product line up, the task to choosing a perfect gift is much easier. And from their product catalog may I recommend the new 4th Generation iPod Touch.
No Doubt, Apple’s iPod line up is the numero uno in the mp3 players list. Coupled with the powerful iTunes platform, it gives you access to unbeatable collection from classics to today’s hits. Now, even the entire Beatles catalog too. With the revolutionary release of the iPhone, Apple did another remarkable launch and that was off iPod Touch. Over the years the product has matured and now its an outstanding device on its own. From the Amazon description:
See friends while you talk to them with FaceTime. Shoot, edit, and share stunning HD video. Play games against friends, or unknown foes, with the new Game Center. And do it all on the Retina display–the highest-resolution screen on any mobile device. It makes graphics and text look even more amazing. The new iPod touch. It’s state-of-the-art fun.
You can read the complete feature list of the product here, but I’m going to highlight few.
- Audio and Video playbook was already superb, but now with the Retina display the quality is amazing.
- If you are into games, Game Center will keep you glued all day long for sure.
- And now it supports HD recording so can you can make remarkable videos.
- Apple’s perfectionist engineering is all around the device, from the new A4 processor to Gyro meter incorporated its one device to have.
- I can write a complete blog post on what a blessing Facetime is. I recently moved cities and talking to my family is sooo much easier now. They use the iPod Touch and I use the recently launched Facetime app on my mac and its just magical. Instead of being fixed to a chair, my wife can show me kids playing around in their own space. I can only imagine so many other benefits one can achieve through the application of facetime.
So who is it for?
Kids and teens, definitely. Adults, a perfect media player. And even if you have a mobile phone, like me and wouldn’t like to invest in iPhone, the iPod Touch makes a lot of sense. Atleast you are now going to miss the fun with Angry Birds.
Which one to buy then?
The iPod Touch comes in three configurations 8 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB. It seriously depends on the budget you have for the gift and the usage by the person. The bigger storage space the merrier it is, always!
I hope I have made your gift selection a bit easier with this post.
