(A kids review but still read it please 11yrs old)
It took me a long time to save up for this and persuade my parents to let me get it. The best deal was definitely Amazon. Very pleased with delivery and price; it came 4 days early.
I've never owned anything like and ipod touch before. It's an amazing device with great apps (alot free too), great sound quality and loads more.
Set up: It took and 30-45mins to sync the ipod and set it up. It isn't that long to wait since once it's done there's not really any more setting up required.
Good points: The apps(even free ones are brill); Good qaulity picture and sound. The video is the best bit and the camera is ok. It's not amazing but it's not poor. Screen is all very fast and responsive with every click, important i think you may agree. I noticed it went a bit blue, but this was when i tipped it at a stupid angle. Internet access is quick and easy to use. I've not yet tried facetime but i'm sure it will be good. Easy to download music off itunes. It was rapped it tighly and safely to prevent damage to the ipod on delivery. My friend has a 3rd gen and the 4th is a very good upgrade. It's lighter, slicker and this one has a camera. Also the volume buttons have a space between each other.
The bad points: It's easily broken so i would get a case. (What do you expect though) A finger magnet and can get scratched easily. Apple doesn't supply a mains charger so to charge you must use the USB cable. When playing apps the battery runs out. As far as i'm concerned i have no more bad points. When you first turn on the ipod a little apple comes up. If you turn the screen to the side it goes gold, but it was tilted at a stupid angle.
