iPod Touch 2nd Generation Review

The iPod Touch

The new iPod Touch is even slimmer than last year’s and comes in three different models: with 8, 16 or 32 GB memory capacity. There is a tiny loudspeaker and also outside volume controls, so you don’t have to access the touch-based interface to operate this simple feature (which is good since the interface gets frozen after a few minutes of not being used). The speaker is just as bad as your grandfather’s pocket radio but at least now you can use the iPod as an alarm clock without having to sleep with your earbuds stuck in. The corners are rounded to give it an iPhone 3G feel but, unlike its phone-capable big cousin, there’s no cheap plastic backplate to keep the final price down. The iTouch kept the sleek steel chrome backplate from the earlier model, as well as the same screen size (3,5 inches).
