iPod touch now available.


The Unofficial Apple Weblog posting has revealed that the some Apple Stores in the US have the iPod touch on stock. Fifteen minutes later, unboxing photos appeared on Flickr. So now it’s official; the iPod touch has landed. For those who wants more information about the iPod touch, download the manual from Apple here. The iPod touch’s feature page has videos showing you how to use the different apps and features on the device.

Playlist reports that only the 16GB models were available. No word when the 8GB will hit the stores.

The release is much earlier than I expected. I have to contact the guy from HK on when the touch will be available there.

NeoverseTV has posted a quick video of the iPod touch on Youtube.

iLounge has their “Ten Things You Need to Know About iPod touch.” The iPod touch’s screen may differ from that of the iPhone with the latter looking better when viewed off-angle. Gizmodo seems to confirm that the iPhone screen is ‘better’ than the iPod touch’s. Sound quality also is not as good as the iPod classic’s, the touch having more background hiss. Find out more in their top ten list of the things you may want to know about the iPod touch. I hope that these anomalies are just a result of first production run. Then again, perhaps some components were sacrificed to bring down the cost of production.

Regardless of the initial thoughts about the iPod touch from other sites, PC Magazine gave the iPod touch 5 out of 5 stars and has been given the Editor’s Choice award. Their bottomline:

With an excellent interface and elegant design, the iPod touch is simply the best portable media player ever made.
