Two of the more popular media players are the iPod touch and the iPod nano, and even though there are other choices out there, there is no denying that Apple has done a great job on these devices and rivals have been unable to match the success of these models.
With Christmas fast approaching some of you will be prepared and have already purchased all your gifts. However, if you have left things till this late, then you should consider an iPod touch or nano.
This is the best time to buy a product like this as a gift because loved ones will benefit from a full warranty, as you have purchased it so close to the holiday season, and better still, Apple has some deals running on these items.
Let’s look at the iPod touch 6th generation first, which was introduced back in 2012, and while a refresh was wanted in 2013, we know Apple would skip a year. There are three storage options for the touch, these are 16GB, 32GB and 64GB.
They come with a 4-inch Retina display with IPS technology, 1136 x 640 resolution and 326 pixels per inch, a contrast ratio of 800:1 and a screen brightness of 500 cd/m2. There is also FaceTime HD camera, Face detection and Photo and video geotagging through Wi-Fi.
Compare this to the iPod nano with its 2.5-inch widescreen Multi-Touch display, 240 x 432 resolution at 202 pixels per inch, 16B storage and Nike+ support.
When we review the iPod touch vs. iPod nano battery life there is a huge difference. Music playback for the former is 40 hours compared to 30 hours for the latter. Other times are 8 hours for video compared to 3.5 hours and charging time for each are 4 hours and 3 hours respectively.
