Apple Comparison: iPad vs iPod Touch for Video, eReading, and more

We have heard the jokes that the new Apple iPad is just a BIG iPod Touch, but is this really true? Pocket-lint decided to take a detailed look at the new iPad vs. iPod Touch, and compare them in a number of ways that includes video playback, eReading, and gaming.

Is a tablet really what you’re after? This will be different for every buyer, and what you want to achieve from the device will help give you the correct answer. In many areas like gaming, the iPad only benefits from a bigger screen and processor power but this is a real benefit for movie watching.

Both the iPod Touch and iPad lack a much-needed camera for imaging, which is a shame as this seemed a must-have for the new Apple iPad but sadly lacked it. Head over to Pocket-Lint to read their full Apple comparison, and decide yourself on the differences between the iPod Touch and iPad.

Is the new iPad just an “iPod touch XL” or does it have real benefits over the current iPod Touch? Feel free to leave your conclusions in the comments.
