With the 2nd generation iPod touch hardware, it is clear that Apple DO listen to their customers. Make no mistake, the 1st generation hardware was and still is excellent. But no product is perfect, and there's always room for improvement. So how is the 2nd generation iPod touch hardware different from the 1st generation? How is it better?
Thickness was never a problem with the 1st generation iPod touch. After all, how much thinner than 8mm do you need a pocket computer to be? Well, despite Steve Jobs saying "it's even thinner", the 2nd generation iPod touch is actually thicker. Yes, thicker. It's 8.5mm thick in the centre. However, it feels thinner in your hand because of the contoured design, borrowed from the iPhone 3G. Apple's big thing in 2008 is eliminating the sides of products, and replacing them with swooping curves that taper to a soft point. For the iPod touch this is a good thing, because it feels less hard and angular in your hand, making it far more comfortable to hold.
The Battery Life of the 1st generation iPod touch was already good at 24 hours for Audio, and 7 hours for Video. The 2nd generation iPod touch dramatically improves on Audio, now at 36 hours, but mysteriously drops 1 hour for Video, down to 6 hours.
The biggest problem for me, with the 1st generation iPod touch, was the lack of physical buttons.Read more ›
+ WiFi and Safari Browser. Superb mobile browsing experience. For example, you can stream BBC iPlayer to the Touch perfectly. A real joy.
+ Youtube widget for playback of youtube videos.
+ Integrated Nike + Support, so that you can use the device as a training tool for exercise.
+ App Store. You can download from thousands of Apps on iTunes, including games, and stream internet radio, for instance.
+ Superb capacitive glass touch screen. Older touch screens use `resistive' technology. These work on a different principle, and are less responsive. (The Archos 5 uses a resistive screen. The Cowon S9, however, uses a capacitive one like the iPod Touch).
+ Incredible User Interface. Beautifully conceived and implemented. Music and Videos are organised with an astonishing attention to the user's goals, and you regularly feel that Apple designers have read your mind when you go about tasks.
Here's an example: you wish to download a podcast. You go to an internet address in Safari. Safari automatically grabs the address, boots you into iTunes (on the device itself), and takes you to the podcast listing within the iTunes store. Two more clicks and you're downloading your content. That's the way things should be done.
+ Advantages over the previous generation include a dedicated volume rocker, slightly more curvaceous design, slightly improved battery life, integrated Nike + support and mini speaker.
- Very, very average sound quality. Now it is a mystery to me why so many users and reviewers overlook this issue.Read more ›
Be careful when purchasing as some retailers are still selling the first generation version at full price, as experienced by several customers. However, Apple must take some of the blame for not making the later versions very different to the untrained eye.
For the record, the main differences between the newer an older version are:
Longer battery life
External volume buttons (these visually distinguish it from the 1G model)
Anyway, the earlier (1G) version is being heavily discounted by some sellers. Now costing not that much more than the tiny (non-touch) screened 4G Nano, it is an absolute steal but you may have to hunt one down....
After just over a month it started switching off anytime you touched a button - including volume. Took it back to Argos who duly sent it away. Two weeks later, it came back un-repaired because the liquid indicator (inside the headphone socket) was pink and Apple will not touch it - 'xcuse the pun - if the indicator is pink.
So assuming that the "very accurate indicator" (as Apple describe it) is what they say (!!), the only possibility is that some dampness occurred when it was heavy rain one day and it was in his Sprayway jacket pocket. If this is it, then I would suggest that the product is not fit for purpose. I am not aware that Apple state you can only use in dry weather, not in a bathroom, not during the months of December to March (August to June if you live in Scotland like me).
This product is really good and a joy to use, but if it needs kept in a hermetically sealed environment, then it's not really much use for the very market it sells to.
So buy it but take very good care of it.
