Incredible player that keeps Apple as King
At just 8mm thick, Apple's new flagship iPod is a stunning piece of design.
It's incredibly slick and undoubtedly the bestlooking media player on the market.
The screen quality is superb, the interface extremely easy to use.
Web browsing is fast, thanks to built-in wireless networking.
The sleek, smooth new lines of the new iPod Touch will make it a must-have Christmas present
Its 31/2-inch touch-screen display lets the user scroll through menus with light finger touches or use two fingers to resize pictures.
Scrolling through CD artwork, as if the cases were in a rack, works brilliantly. Video quality is excellent, and YouTube clips also look great.
The glass screen does seem to attract fingerprints and the Touch lacks space - we used a 16gb version which was perfect for music, but start adding films and TV shows, and it will very quickly fill up.
Despite these drawbacks, it is an incredible player, and will certainly cement Apple's position as the king of the portable music world.
