New Apple iPod touch
Apple’s stunning Retina display makes everything on Apple iPod touch look even more incredible, whether playing games, watching video, browsing the web or flicking through photos. The 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 Apple iPod touch is held at a normal distance, making text, pictures and video look sharper, smoother and more realistic.
Apple iPod touch HD video
With the new front facing digital camera and build-in microphone, Apple iPod touch users can make FaceTime video calls over Wi-Fi. With just one tap of the new FaceTime application, Apple iPod touch users can call other new iPod touch or iPhone 4 users to easily 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 easily switching to the rear-facing camera. The rear-facing camera on new Apple iPod touch is perfect for HD video recording. Users can easily capture HD video wherever they are and share it via e-mail, Mobile Me and YouTube. With the iMovie app, users of the new iPod touch can combine movie clips, add dynamic transitions and themes and include photos and music right on their Apple iPod touch player. Users of the new iPod touch can buy and download the app for $4.99 through the App Store right on their new iPod touch.
