HD recording only with rear camera? can't take photos with it...?

So far everything we hoped for. I kind of wished they tossed the 8GB model in favor of a 16GB model but at least they put the 8GB in the 4th Gen line up unlike the 3rd Gen where the 8GB was just a remodel of the 2nd Gen.

Did Stevo indicate the camera type in the back? 3 or 5 mp?

He did that with the iPhone 4... there's nothing different.

Does the 8GB have every feature as the 32GB and 64gb?

He didn't, he only mentioned that the back camera can record on HD quality and that's it. So i'm suprised so many are screaming of happiness already since it doesn't look like the back camera can take photos..

I'm wondering if the rear camera can take photos or just the HD video recording. It's kinda confusing.

I'm guessing his ambiguity indicates that its for video only and probably 3mp.

oh well, still happy.

Could anybody tell if the new Ipod has a built in mic or is it still going to use the IN-Line mic. Mr. Jobs glossed over that.

I want a built in mic!

It's only a video camera - 720p "HD" recording.

However, there might be a app to take photos at 0.7 megapixels.

1280720 - 720 "HD"
1600 x 1200 - 1 megapixels

I bailed on the stream, had to get back to work, but it dropped on me a bunch of times and went back to the beginning, where I had to hit Done, then open it back up to catch up to the current spot. Almost missed some of the iPod touch stuff!

Did Steve mention anything about upgrading to the new model if you have recently purchased an iPod Touch? (i.e. I got the 64 GB model a month ago.....)

Or am I outta luck??

Typically, most places give 30 day money back. Costco gives 90 day. I belive Fry's gives 15 day money back.

Where did you buy it from?

I second that. Really good one. I also like the fact that all models are the same level, no "entry 8GB model like last year" stuff.

I was sure they were going to a do an entry level model but I guess I am wrong, I guess they didn't want to confuse consumers like they did last year, since the 8GB 3rd Gen touch isn't really 3rd gen.

Anyways this is a huge update from the current models!

Oh did steve mention more ram for the touch, I seem to have missed that part.

Are you assuming that the $229 is fully 4th gen. I'm not going to assume that. I hope that it is but...

no it's not

it records video --that's it

it's gonna be like the nano camera

I don't think we can get specs until a teardown. Even last month, no Apple employees knew the RAM in the 3GS or 3G touch. And Apple doesn't post the really good information like that.

Seen that the new touch has a LED retina screen and IP4 has an IPS if I recall correctly.

Wonder how different would it be...

From the Apple website:


Point and shoot.

An amazing view. A decked-out birthday cake. Your dog looking unbearably cute. If you want to take a quick photo to upload to your Facebook page, either camera on iPod touch can also capture stills. Just tap on the screen to adjust exposure. Then post to Facebook and let the comments begin.

Yes it takes photos.

Quote from apple.

Video recording, HD (720p) up to 30 frames per second with audio; still photos (960 x 720) with back camera.


I wonder if it is a slower A4 CPU than the iPhone. Did he specify the speed of the CPU. And the RAM wasn't mentioned.

I'll bet that the $229 is 3rd Gen.

I'm SOOOO close to getting one of these, Apple really came through. Not a lot of disappointment with me. Mainly, the weak back cam(960 x 720 still pics), no mention of the amount of RAM, or CPU speed(is it the same as the iPhone). I'm not complaining or disappointed.

The website says 7 hours of video playback. I'm probably wrong but didn't the 3rd gen say 10 hours of video playback.

0.69 MP :D

I was hoping that the base model would be bumped to 16GB.

But with only 8GB, it means I'll be waiting, until the 3rd gen really becomes obsolete due to software incompatibility, before I upgrade.
