The iPod Touch is our top PMP because of its excellent interface, great media playback and support for a range of apps.

Big & Beautiful Screen ; Excellent Audio & Video Playback ; Rich Variety of Applications ; Excellent Web Browsing

Dependence on iTunes ; Sub-par Earphones ; Average Speaker

Apple iPod touch (2012)

 

Thin, light, bright, powerful: this is Apple's best ever iPod

Thin, light, well-built ; Excellent screen and good camera ; Fast processing and great battery life

Lightning port complicates backward compatibility ; No volume control on bundled EarPods

Apple’s newest iPod touch joins components from the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S, cobbling them together in a body that’s incredibly thin and light. New earphones and a new dock connector are both good and bad, but the overall package is an excellent one.

Apple iPod touch (late 2011)

 

The iPod touch continues to be a lightweight but serious alternative to the iPhone

Susceptible to scratches ; No Siri

iOS 5 improvements are great ; Best screen of any portable media player

We’re smitten with the latest version of the iPod touch on almost every level. Additions such as Photostream and the editable playlists really enhance the player’s usability while iCloud addresses some of the ‘tied to iTunes’ concerns we’ve raised in...

Apple iPod touch 16GB

 

Touch of genius or expensive gimmick? Bit of both really.

So can a simple touch screen really be worth paying this much for? The short answer is yes, but you don't want the short answer, so here's why... The touch's touch-sensitive control system really is a revolution in user interfaces - I can think of no...

Apple iPod Touch (4th generation) review

 

If you're buying an iPod Touch for someone, this is not the iPod he or she wants. Trust me, people will want to open the box and see a shiny, colorful new fifth-generation iPod Touch . Your loved one will know the difference. The fifth generation has a...

The fourth-generation Apple iPod Touch , winner of CNET's 2011 Editors' Choice Award for portable media players, has been upgraded with new software and a boost in capacity.

The fifth-generation iPod Touch offers a larger screen, faster processor, and superior photo and camcorder quality.

The fourth-gen iPod Touch is Apple's second-best portable media player, with a price that will help you forget about No. 1.

iPod Touch review

 

In an era of tablets of all shapes and sizes, or smartphones of varying degrees of tablet-approaching vastness, what room is there for a device like the iPod Touch? I'd say "the humble music player," but the Touch is no longer that, nor has been for...

The 2012 fifth-generation iPod Touch has an excellent set of features: better front and back cameras, 1080p video recording, iOS 6, and a 4-inch Retina Display just like on the iPhone 5, in a design even thinner than the iPhone.

The iPhone 5 still beats it on performance. The Touch lacks any phone functions, and there are tablet competitors that beat the $299 Touch on price and screen size.

The latest iPod Touch is the best iPod ever, and as close to a phoneless iPhone 5 as you can get -- but its high price makes it a tough call versus cheaper tablets with larger screens.
