As many of you may already be aware, Apple came up with a new version of the iPod Touch this week, one that looks quite like the iPhone 6. The new iPod Touch is notably faster than its previous iteration, has a powerful camera and has turned out to be a great addition to Apple’s gadget lineup.

The iPod Touch is a part MP3 player, but then it has more to it! The fact that it is the least expensive way of stepping into the iOS ecosystem cannot be undermined. It is priced at $199 for the 16 GB model and it goes up to $399 for the 128 GB model. Having said that, the iPod Touch faces some stiff competition in the market, since most people already own smartphones, and it is fast losing its classic niches.

The iPod Touch has a 4-inch display offering 1136 x 640 pixels screen resolution. It runs on Apple’s own 64-bit A8 chip mated to a M8 motion coprocessor, to handle motion tracking. Being an iOS device, the new Touch will allow users a complete access to the Apple Store and it is certainly an inexpensive way to go about it. It boasts of an 8 MP iSight lens and is capable of recording videos at 1080p, limited to 30 fps.

Should you go for the new iPod Touch? Well, there’s no denying the fact that Apple’s new iPod Touch has shaped up incredibly well, however, if you are really looking for a fitness companion or a jukebox, your smartphone should suffice your needs. The fact that the iPod Touch lacks cellular connectivity and offers nothing extra, is something the masses should consider before laying hands on it.
