Pros

super high resolution 'Retina' display - the same as that found in the iPhone 4 (960 x 640px)

17 agree

now features the A4 processor - the same technology found in the latest iPhone, very powerful while still being energy efficient

14 agree

capable of 720p high definition video capture (can be edited on the device too)

12 agree

capable of FaceTime video chat with iPhone 4 users

10 agree

beautiful design

9 agree

7.2mm thin - improved dimensions over the iPhone 4

8 agree

new GameCenter brings social interaction to playing games over WiFi with friends and other random people

8 agree

can easily be jailbroken and used to its full capacity freely

6 agree

an all-around entertainment platform, not just an MP3 player - capable of browsing the internet, gaming, running other types of useful applications

6 agree

A very thin device with an amazing processor and many capabilities

6 agree

made of high quality materials - glass and stainless steel

6 agree

runs the latest version of Apple's mobile operating system - iOS 4

6 agree

fully capable of running the majority of iOS 4 applications - the most popular mobile platform

6 agree

the same price as the last generation at launch (doesn't start more expensive and get cheaper as the device gets older, as is common with most consumer electronics - a great deal to buy at launch)

5 agree

full motion capture for intuitive user interface response, gaming and application control - 3-axis gyroscope and accelerometer

5 agree

now each model has the latest internal components and features (irrespective of the capacity of the device)

4 agree

A Microphone

3 agree

available a week after launch

3 agree

beautifull

Cons

poor codec support

6 agree

FaceTime is limited - only accessible to those with an iPhone 4 or this generation of the iPod Touch

6 agree

works with iTunes only - designed with a proprietary 'walled garden' approach in mind (the intention to sell you music and applications from a single source, limit how you use your device)

5 agree

the same predatory 8GB to 32GB capacity jump (as most people would be happy with 16)

4 agree

the same price throughout its life cycle (generally becomes a worse deal as the year progresses as an upgraded model will be available for the same cost to the consumer in September)

4 agree

the same capacities as the last generation

3 agree

Even though it uses a 'Retina' display, uses a lower quality screen which means darker picture and lesser viewing angles compared to the iPhone 4.

3 agree

no innovation when it comes to music / audio - a continued focus on improved use as an all-around entertainment / gaming platform

2 agree

No hardware controls.

2 agree

designed for aesthetic look / elegance rather than usability and durability

2 agree

Low quality camera, great for 720p video, but still images have a low resolution of 960x720.

2 agree

Camera only takes 960x720 still photos.

The Apple iPod Touch is a media player and Internet interactive tool. This is the 4th generation of the Apple iPod Touch, and includes two cameras, one on either side of the device. This allows video conferencing and messaging over a Wi-Fi connection. Also new to this version is a 3.5 inch Retina display, which shows images at 326 pixels per inch to create more detail than the eye can pick up. Local maps are also now available but the Touch still lacks a GPS receiver, allowing quick directions from many locations. Connections to the App Store and iTunes can run through a standard Wi-Fi connection, and a Bluetooth connection allows for additional functionality and backups. Email and web browsing is fully supported, as well as browsing YouTube. Video display can be as detailed as the high-definition 720p standard.

I am a very big fan of apple and actually I have an iPad touch, I enjoy using it. It has a lot of great features. I'm not surprised that apple have thousands of web reviews.
