The iPod touch
For those who don’t wish to get an expensive iPhone with an even pricier monthly plan, the iPod touch is the perfect, contract-free alternative.
What is an iPod touch? An iPod touch is a touch-command device with a 3.5-inch diagonal retina HD screen display. For those who want the ultimate in gaming, application, multitasking and on-the-go entertainment experience, the iPod touch is the model of choice.
The iPod touch is the only non-contract iPod device with wireless capability, too. Hook into your own home wireless network, or link up with the free Wifi at a hotel or Wifi hotspot.
You can create an iTunes account on the computer and download new games, music, movies and applications from your device without the use of a computer.
An iPod touch comes in 8, 32 and 64 GB models. If you don’t have a lot of music and you merely want to play games, the 8 GB model is ideal. But if you own thousands of songs and plan to do a lot of gaming, get one of the higher-capacity models so your device doesn’t get sluggish.
