Description


The iPod touch 3rd Generation (Late 2009) models -- please note that this model does not have 3G networking support -- are being marketed with an increased emphasis on gaming rather than the "iPhone without a phone" pitch provided by previous iPod touch models. Nevertheless, they continue to offer much of the same functionality of the iPhone 3GS, minus the "phone", mobile phone networking (3G/EDGE), A-GPS, digital compass, and integrated camera.

Although they are sold as a single lineup with 8 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB of storage, the 8 GB model essentially is the same as the 8 GB configuration of the iPod touch 2nd Generation, whereas the 32 GB and 64 GB models are the same externally as the iPod touch 2nd Generation but have innards more in common with the iPhone 3GS with advertised "50% faster performance" and OpenGL ES 2.0 support for better graphics performance (courtesy of the same 800 MHz Samsung ARM processor that powers the iPhone 3GS).

Like the iPod touch 2nd Generation, the iPod touch 3rd Generation features the same "multi-touch" sensitive 3.5" display with 320x480 resolution, accelerometer, ambient light sensor, and support for 802.11b/g (hardware-capable of 802.11n as well).

Features are largely unchanged -- apart from superior performance on the 32 GB and 64 GB models -- but the higher-end models also add Voice Control capability for voice navigation and a "VoiceOver" screen reader for the visually impared. All three models support Voice Memos too, but the 8 GB model ships with standard earphones by default and needs the "Apple Earphones with Remote and Mic" (or another mic) for recording. All three also support a new "Genius Mixes" feature that makes an effort to make mixes of songs that "go great together".

Battery life is an Apple-estimated 30 hours for music playback and 6 hours for video.
