The new Apple iPod Touch sticks iPhone hardware into a tiny package

Digital Audio Players
[MUSIC] Hey, I'm Nate with CNET and today we're checking out the new iPod Touch. Now, this tiny little gadget does many of the things your iPhone 6 does for a fraction of the price, but it sits in a really weird place as far as gadgets are concerned. The iPod Touch is small. It's got a 4.0" screen with a resolution of 1136 x 640 pixels. That works out to 326 pixels per inch. It's also really light at about 88 grams. That makes it pretty much identical to the fifth generation iPod touch it's replacing. So here's what's new. Inside you'll find the iPhone 6's hardware. That means Apple's A8 processor and that M8 coprocessor which handles motion tracking. All the games and apps you love on iOS will work here. Although you will of course need to stick to wi-fi as there's no cellular activity. The camera hardware isn't identical, because you're getting an 8 megapixel isight camera, which is a little slower on the iPod touch. The aperture's a little narrower, and video recording is limited to 30 frames per second or 120 frames per second in slow motion. [UNKNOWN] can double that, but it's still still HD, and the [UNKNOWN] aren't bad. I'll definitely circle back here soon. The iPod touch is also quite a bit cheaper than the iPhone 6. It starts at $199 for the 16 gigabyte model, and it works all the way up to $399 for the 128 gigabyte model. There is, of course, no contract. An unlocked iPhone 6 starts at 649 and then there's the monthly service fee to factor in. So here's the thing. Devices like iPhone used to be a great way to carry our massive music libraries around, but our smart phones pretty much handle that nowadays. Then devices like the iPod touch became great fitness companions so you could take them for a run or take them to the gym. But we're probably using a smart phone to do that too and there's things like smart watches that are trying to muscle in on that space. This could be a new gadget to give to a child as a sort of starter gadget. But I'm pretty sure they prefer the larger table they're already using. So where does that leave the iPod Touch? Let's figure that out. Head over to CNET to learn more, I'm Nate, thanks for watching.
