The iPod Touch came next to the discontinued Apple’s legacy iPod Classic which had the highest memory capacity of all the types of iPods staggering 160GB. Available with 8, 32, or 64GB of memory, this iPod can hold up to 14, 000 songs, 90, 000 photos, and 80 hours of video–so you can watch your favorite movies whenever you’d like. This iPod also features a built-in speaker that allows you to listen to your music without the need for headphones. It also includes iTunes, which allows you to buy music anytime you want.
Built with a free Wi-Fi, the iPod Touch lets you get on the Internet and access music online from almost anywhere. It also allows you to browse the web, access social networking sites including Facebook, Twitter, and Myspace, and even send emails. Sending a message is a breeze with the full keyboard feature.
Also, the display screen for an iPod Touch is the biggest of all iPod types. It is 4 inches in size and boasts a multi-touch display. The most outstanding feature of the iPod Touch is its mixing and voice control abilities.
The iPod Nano comes with an 8 or 16GB memory and is available in a variety of colors such as red, orange, yellow, green, blue, black, silver, pink, and purple. The biggest modification that came with this iPod is the built-in video camera which allows you to capture every exciting moment–interesting activities, people, and events–on video.
This iPod also comes with Genius Mixes which allow you to sample songs without looking at the screen, and FM radio that doesn’t need the Internet, and a pedometer which allows you to track how much you’ve been working out. The iPod Nano also features a 2.5-inch multi-touch screen as well as a built-in speaker that allows you to listen to your music without using your headphones.
The smallest of all iPods, the iPod Shuffle’s compact size allows for easy storage. Its unique feature is the fact that you use your earphones to control your music a lot and not the device itself. This makes the iPod Nano one of the world’s smallest MP3 players. And, it is the only iPod which has no screen and is ideal for audio files only.
The iPod Shuffle also comes with Voice Over feature, which tells you the song title and artist, and even allows you to make multiple music playlists at your disposal. This iPod comes with either 2 or 4GB of memory that can hold up to 1, 000 songs. The iPod Shuffle is also available in blue, green, yellow, red, pink, silver, and black.
