|See, hear, touch, everything that entertains you on one really great iPod.
iPod touch lets you enjoy everything you love about an iPod, and then some. Watch your movies and TV shows on a brilliant 3.5-inch display. Use the revolutionary Multi-Touch interface to flick through your music in Cover Flow. And anytime you’re itching for more entertainment, just tap iTunes to browse and buy on the fly.
With room for up to 14,000 songs and up to 30 hours of audio playback time, iPod touch gives you nonstop musical entertainment.* And the new Genius Mixes and Voice Control features add even more ways for you to experience your music.
Now the Genius feature is even more powerful. Introducing Genius Mixes. All you do is sync iPod touch to iTunes, and Genius automatically searches your library and finds songs that sound great together. Then it creates multiple mixes you’ll love. These mixes are like channels programmed entirely with your music.
Say you’re listening to a song on your iPod touch that you really like and want to hear other tracks that go great with it. Just tap the Genius icon. Genius automatically finds songs on your iPod touch that go great with your selected song and makes a Genius playlist for you.
Movies + TV Shows
Your very own private screening awaits you on iPod touch. Watch the latest film release or an episode of your favorite sitcom anytime you want. Store up to 80 hours of video and get up to 6 hours of video playback time on the new iPod touch.
Part of what makes iPod touch so amazing is that iTunes is literally at your fingertips. A Wi-Fi connection and a quick tap are all it takes to get instant access to millions of songs and thousands of movies and TV shows. Not to mention applications, audiobooks, and free podcasts and iTunes U lectures. Preview and buy that album you’ve been wanting. Rent that film everyone raved about, or make it part of your collection. iTunes on iPod touch is your doorway to endless entertainment possibilities.
If you’re somewhere with a wireless network, iPod touch instantly recognizes it. If it’s free Wi-Fi, you’re good to go. Launch any one of your Wi-Fi-dependent apps, such as Safari or iTunes, and you’re on. Some wireless networks may require a password, but iPod touch has that covered, too. Just enter the password once, and iPod touch remembers it. So the next time you’re within range of that network, you’re connected automatically.
Safari — an advanced web browser designed for Mac and PC computers — also comes on iPod touch. Safari on iPod touch lets you carry the full-size power of the Internet in your pocket. Just connect to a Wi-Fi network, and you can use Safari for nearly everything you do using a web browser on a computer. In fact, web pages look exactly the same on iPod touch as they do on your computer.
Email on iPod touch looks and acts just like email on your computer. View your messages in rich HTML, including attachments. Mail recognizes file types such as .doc, .jpg, .mp3, and many others. And setting up Mail is easy because iPod touch automatically enters settings for popular accounts including Gmail, MobileMe, Yahoo!, AOL, and Microsoft Exchange.
Typing on iPod touch is easy. That’s because it has an intelligent keyboard that predicts and corrects words as you type. Writing something lengthy? When you turn iPod touch on its side, the keyboard switches from portrait to landscape with larger keys and more room to type.
Know where you are and where you’re going with Maps on iPod touch. If you’re connected to a wireless network, you can find your location and get a list of turn-by-turn directions. Maps also finds points of interest from a keyword search. Say you and your friends have a craving for pizza. Tap Search, type in “pizza,” and Maps shows you restaurants nearby.
iPod touch is the only iPod that helps you stay connected. So anytime you find yourself saying “I need to make that my Facebook status” or “This deserves a tweet,” pull out your iPod touch. Social networking apps such as Facebook, LinkedIn, and AIM are available for free from the App Store.
Make your iPod touch even more amazing with the App Store. All you need is a Wi-Fi connection. Browse over 75,000 games and apps, and buy whatever you like with just a tap.
Genius Recommendations for Apps
A new feature of iPod touch makes finding cool new apps even easier. It’s Genius for apps, and it works just like Genius for your music. Tap the Genius icon and get recommendations for apps that you might like based on those you already downloaded.
The accelerometer inside iPod touch detects when you rotate iPod touch from portrait to landscape, then automatically changes what you see onscreen. But the beauty of the accelerometer comes into play when you’re actually in play. For instance, in racing games where your entire iPod becomes the steering wheel. Or balance games, such as Topple.
What sets iPod touch apart from traditional handheld gaming devices is its revolutionary Multi-Touch interface. It means you’re not just playing a game, you’re interacting with the game. Turn your fingers into an expert skateboarder. Test your reflexes as you’re challenged to tap through the beats of a song. You can even transform iPod touch into a musical instrument such as a drum set or a guitar. It’s all thanks to the brilliance of Multi-Touch technology.
Wireless and Bluetooth
You already know how much fun it is to play games on iPod touch when it’s just you. Multiply the fun by playing with your friends over Wi-Fi — whether they’re two cubicles or two continents away. You can also use Bluetooth for close-range head-to-head gaming.
Customer Reviews of Apple iPod Touch 8GB 2nd Generation
This thing is flat out amazing. Previously my PSP was my most dense piece of impressive technology. My wife's Touch blows it away. Of course it is a great iPod (although I think the click-wheel might be a little better for navigating), but it also is great for flashcards for the kids, little games, email and internet. Simply amazing. It was worth every penny for us and was a nice replacement for our 2nd gen 10gb ipod which failed us after 5 years. I am pretty sure we have already downloaded $20 worth of apps. I am embarrassed to be gushing - but this is a really impressive little device.
good 2nd generation ipod6/11/2012
I prefer to buy the latest generation ipod but for this price I suggest this who want to play with ipod with out camera.
When i first bought this iPod i was estatic because this reinvented the word 'mp3 player'. The availability to download apps is awesome. Its basically and iPhone without all the components of a phone. If you need a mp3 player, this is the one to get.
great product !5/11/2012
physical volume buttons are now placed on the side of the iPod Touch as they are on the iPhone. This is very convenient. It allows you to adjust the volume of your music, without having to pull the entire device out of your pocket and activate the screen. A time saver.
Apple iPod Touch 8GB 2nd Generation6/22/2011
he apple ipod touch is the best mp3 player known to mankind. It does everything including web browsing, gaming and even texting using an app. After over two years of nonstop service the touch has earned it's title as being an indestructible piece of machinery. Even after being dropped without a case for all it's life it continues to perform like it did on day one. The ipod touch is easy to use and never leaves my side. I will never buy any other device other than an ipod touch.
Searched several places before finding a great price. Very happy!
everything was good except for shipping. even though i had to pay for shipping the item was delivered after 10 business days.
