I just picked it up from my local Apple store and viewed some of my videos on youtube and they look just like they do on my 1080p HDTVs ! The new Retina display is PERFECT !

Your YouTube video isn't going to be able to demonstrate how the videos look to you on your retina display to us.

Here is a better video with it closer to my camcorder viewing another of my youtube videos. View in 1080p mode if you have a large monitor and fast computer.

Yep, I'm loving my 32gb version also.. I don't see a HUGE difference in teh retina display but its nicer.

I keep trying to lock it by pushing the left side but they put the lock button to the right on this version..

old habits..

When I was at my Apple store at 9am the manager told me he only had the 8GB and 32GB but told me he would have the 64GB in about an hour so I came back at 10:30 and picked it up.

Who freaking gives a ****? I've seen alot of complaints about this, and it's getting really stupid. I checked out an iPhone 4 today and played with it and said "holy ****." Not because I could put it on the table, stand far away and still see what it says, but because you can see all the text on a website while zoomed out completely. If it has THAT feature of the iphone 4, I could care less about whether the display is IPS or whatnot.

On that note, can you read the text on the ipod 4 while zoomed out? (best example would be the New York Times site (since that's what I checked out :D).

There is so such thing as a Retina display. Its a marketing trick by Apple. By Apple's logic, their competitors also sell retina displays with their phones.

My videos on youtube look exactly the same on both the iPod Touch 4 or iPhone 4 Retina displays.

You're trying to prove TN matrix has the same quality as IPS. You really don't get it do you? Show me your iPod touch side by side with the iPhone 4, both connected to charger, and we'll talk about your "perfect amazing super duper iPod screen"....

Umm...pretty much every review, even the engadget one, notes how nice the screen is. I suppose they are all "retard" as you put it? Again, you're trying to make an assertion that because it's not IPS it cannot be "good," but that's simply false. It might not be "as good as" the iPhone 4 screen, but it can still be impressive you know. I'm puzzled as to why are you so hell bent on proving people wrong when pretty much every reviewer and the people who handled the device say the screen is great. :confused:

Wow did Apple see this coming? Ipod Touch 4 users vs Iphone 4 users. FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT. :)

GoodBoy you need to calm down, just because it's not as good as the Iphone 4 doesn't mean its bad its way better then last gen and way better then most other comparable devices so just put it to rest and grown up.

So let's say both iDevices are like Ferrari's, but one has an engine that isn't quite as powerful as the other, does that mean it sucks?

Imagine that both the iDevices are like Ferrari's, the $120,000 version is almost as good as the $200,000 version, but lacks some minor features. CUSTOMERS ARE APPALLED THAT THEY AREN'T EXACTLY THE SAME!

I'm not saying it's crap for TN type of panel. It's just crap compared to any better LCD technology. This is not my imagination, it's the nature of screen technologies, so you really don't fight with me, but rather try to prove something that simply cannot be. Mr joe1946 thinks TN is equaly good as iPhone 4, and my response was regarding his statement, which is an obvious either lie or the lack of knowledge about differences in many types of LCD panels.

... Mr joe1946 thinks TN is equaly good as iPhone 4, and my response was reagarding his statement, which is an obvious either lie or the lack of knowledge about differences in many types of LCD panels.

And to joe1946, it could very well be. If both screens have the similar gamut, color responses and tone curve with the same GUI displayed, they very well could look pretty much identical to lay people's eyes. You are ignoring that not everybody cares so much about the black level. People are much more receptive towards the brightness and color casts, and the screens are close enough in those departments.

I understand that you, as an internet-forum-dwelling-geek(as I am too) demand a better technology from a product, but you're just being rude by asserting your standard is the only one.

Seeing as that's the main market demographic for this device, it's not surprising.

Meh I pay less to drive my SUV then to pay for some AT&T ******** iphone plan. not worth it to be able to see it at an oblique angle that nobody cares to look at it from.

Nice troll bradford88... you really put less than 10 gallons of gas into your SUV per month? Yea, I know I'm feeding a troll, but really, bad argument.

Get a life, quit trolling, enjoy your whatever phone and your SUV and you will be much happier...
