Apple iPod is still the most popular digital portable music player in the world. From its start some 10 years ago with a single product, we today have a range of Apple iPods; from the gaming and entertainment optimized iPod Touch, the small and portable iPod Nano and Shuffle, to the iPod Classic that still stays close to the original concept of having your entire music library in your pocket.
Meet the 2012 iPod familiy.
Apple iPod Touch
The iPod Touch is currently in its 5th generation and remains an alternative to the iPhone in terms of offering the same opportunities with the exception of mobile phone use. It shares much of the same technology as the iPhone but at the same time it is thinner and lighter, making it an ideal mobile gaming and entertainment platform that has been a huge success for Apple.
