New iPod Touch 2010: iPhone 4 wannabe

 

By Posted 8 Jul 2010, 22:24

Earlier today we mentioned a rumor surrounding the new 2010 iPod Touch, now that I have taken a look at these features I have to say that it reminds me of the iPhone 4. The only thing missing will be the phone call side of things – although Skype can pretty much handle that side of things as well.

USA Today reports that the rumor came to them via Electricpig, with John Lewis being the main source. The retailer stated that Apple would continue with what they have done in the past by having an event in September for a new version of the iPod Touch.

Oh we know that the rumors suggest a 5-megapixel camera along with a front-facing one just like the fourth-generation iPhone – it too comes with an LED flash. This means that the iPod Touch could also come with FaceTime, although we are not certain how this will work as the iPhone requires information from your cell carrier.

Apple seems to be keeping with tradition of making the iPod Touch a lot like is sibling – although we are not certain if it will come with the same processor and RAM. The only other thing that remains is the price – if the iPhone 4 is anything to go by then we can tell you to expect to pay a little more.

    The fourth generation iPod Touch seriously, really should be like the iPhone 4, that's what I'm expecting. I mean 3G and 3GS, and 2G and 3G have been the same (Except the camera, phone, and mic) so hopefully 4G and 4G will be alike too…

    Image Steve Jobs on stage at the Keynote, talking about the iPod Touch that is has gone 3 generations looking the same. I really need the iPod Touch 4th generation to look like the iPhone 4, then I will quickly buy one.

      That's great. You should wait, 'cause the upgrades always make you wish you had waited a little longer.

    When I'm traveling with my brother he use his Iphone 3g GPS to get our destination. The new Ipod touch 4g will it be capable to read the GPS location?
