Apple iPod Touch Philippines Price Update, Specs, Features, In the Flesh Photos : Is It For You? Why Get One?

Steve Jobs used to call this device "An iPhone without the phone." And placed beside the Apple iPhone 4, without looking at their still cameras, that's exactly what it is.

The latest iPod Touch that's currently available in the market is practically the same portable media player unveiled by the late great Apple CEO way back in 2010. Sure, there are now two color options but the design and innards - detailed below - remain unchanged. Still, despite having borderline-dated specs, the device runs iOS 5.1 and all the best games in App Store ever-smoothly. Also, it doesn't hurt that even if it's already two years old, the design remains a sight to behold.

Measuring only 7.2 millimeters at its thickest point, the latest generation iPod Touch, is easily the thinnest iDevice Apple has ever released. And as if that's not enough, it even has tapered sides making it look even slimmer and sleeker.

Available in Black and White, iPod Touch comes in 8GB, 32GB and 64GB variants, which sell for Php 11,490, Php 16,990.00, and Php 22,990, respectively at Apple Store Online Philippines, Beyond The Box, and Power Mac Center

Whom is it for? Why get one? If you want to experience iOS and all the benefits of its ecosystem but you're not keen on spending too much money on an expensive iPhone or an iPad, then iPod Touch is for you. Without extensions, the device won't allow you to make calls, send text messages or connect to a 3G network and it doesn't have an all too powerful still camera, but all things considered, it's still an amazing, beautiful gadget that any Apple fan - perhaps even those who already own an iPhone - would be more than glad to own.
