iPod Touch 4th Generation: Features compared to current model

Each year Apple updates its iPod Touch line, and 2010 is expected to be no different. The fourth-generation model should be unveiled in September — well if previous years are anything to go by. So how will the features compare to the current model?

Currently the iPod Touch does not come with a camera and has the same processor as the iPhone 3GS. However, it is expected that the new 2010 iPod Touch will come with a camera on the rear as well as a front-facing camera — meaning that Apple will include FaceTime, which we recently discussed.

Apple could also use the A4 processor, the same one used in the iPhone 4, so will keep with tradition on offering a number of features as the current version of iPhone launched in the same year. iOS 4 will be included, but as usual will come at a price.

We do not know if Apple will use the new Retina display, but surly they will have to so that the user can get the best enjoyment possible while playing games. So what features would you like to see on the new iPod Touch 2010 model?

i would love if they did something like they did with the ipad…i'd consider paying a monthly bill for wifi but i honestly dont think it will happen…can't bag on someone for being a dreamer thought…honestly a better cpu, battery life, and camera would make me happy…im likeing the idea of a design similar to the iphone 4 but i wont complain too much if it's the same…^_^

I think they will put a camera similar to the camera on the ipod nano on the new ipod touch. They will probably put the new imovie video software on iswell but by putting things like facetime and flash on the touch it makes it similar to the iphone in spec and price maybe they will focus on gaming and make the shape more comfortable for gaming.

Is it official that there's going to be a camera in the new iPod Touch 4G? I have been waiting for months now and I'll be so disappointed if it doesn't happen! 🙁

caroline

as long as it has a camera and a mic I am fine with that

also, will it be available in 16gigs with 4th generation technology or does the 16 gig only come with 3rd generation?
do I have to buy the 32 for the lowest amount of storage if i want 4th gen tech inside.?

– Camera ( back and front)
– Better Battery life
– colors.
dun really care about the retina display.. if it was packed in as well, you cant expect a good price..
a GOOD camera would be much appreciated.

I think that it will come with the new retina display, FM radio, microphone, two cameras which include FaceTime, wifi texting messenger like the iPhone’s except only wifi, maybe 4G wifi, and a thinner iPhone 4 design because the iPhone and the iPod touch have always been alike except the iPhone has been slighty bigger.

i don't think apple is going to put a camera on the ipod touch, because what would be the point of having the iphone 4 if the ipod touch would be the same? i think apple is just going to upgrade memory and battery life and that's it!!! i you want a camera, and mic all in one, then the iphone is for you!! buy on iphone 4 with no contract and there you have it you own ipod touch with 2 cameras and all the features the iphone 4 has!!!!

This is nice… But they cud tell folks when they’re gonna make another generation. I just bought mine less than 2 months ago! -smh … It’s kinda a waste of money wasted when they do that. i believe with a camera on it, It should come with free wi-fi on it. Pics?… It’s a IPOD… Not a Phone!!! 4thGen shud be able to hold more stuff like songs, apps, vids, etc.

I BELEIVE THAT THE iPOD TOUCH WILL HAVE A CAMERA WITH FLASH AND ALSO A FACETIME CAMERA.
SOME THINGS THAT THEY NEED TO PUT IN THE IPOD TOUCH IS A BIGGER BATTERY, LONGER LASTING(CURRENT IPOD TOUCH AND IPHONE BATTERY'S ARE REALLY CRAP!)
ALSO A MICROPHONE WOULD BE AWESOME, PLUS THE DESIGN. THE CHROME NEEDS TO GO!!!
BLACK GLASS LIKE IPHONE 4 WOULD BE COOOOLLL!!
