    the new touch only uses the A5 chip found in the iPhone 4S, but the new one is silly thin.

    iPhone also has GPS, cellular data (they both have WiFi), an 8MP camera rather than a 5MP. There is a possibility of a better display (IPS vs TN) but I haven't seen the display spec for the 5th gen iPod Touch.

    Oh, also the iPhone is $750 for 32GB capacity while the iPod Touch is only $300.

    Aside from what's already been mentioned, ram is probably another one. I believe the 4th gen had 256MB and this new one will probably have 512MB. It's assumed the iPhone 5 has 1GB.

    How much meth did you smoke after you woke up?

    Does the new iPod touch only come with a white front? I'm not to wild about that.

    The one with the black back has a black front. All the other colors have white fronts:

    I didn't get one thing

    Apple's new ipod has the same processor as the old iphone 4s, the A5, and apparently it will be possible to run all of the iphone 6 apps, including the super amazing game they previewed, so, does that mean the iphone 4s will be able to run all those apps as well, but maybe a little bit slower? is that right?

    The new iPod touch and the 4S should be basically the same as far as game performance goes. The 'console quality graphics' that were shown off at the keynote were on the new A6 chip in the iPhone 5.

    You have nothing to worry about. Beneath that sleek chassis of the iPhone 4S resides the heart of a lion.
