The new iPod touch has the iPhone 5 screen and a 5MP iSight camera in a 6.1mm thin body

The fifth generation got the iPhone 5's 4" in-cell touch display, as well as a 5MP iSight camera with autofocus, LED flash, and 1080p video recording, as well as 720p video front-facer.
As far as silicon is concerned the new iPod touch is getting upgraded to last year's Apple finest - the dual-core A5 chip with souped up graphics, so it can serve now both as a multimedia consumption device, and play the pretty games in the App Store, optimized for the A5.
The best part is that all this is wrapped in an incredibly slim 6.1mm body, and runs the new iOS 6. As for pricing, the new iPod touch will cost $299 for the 32GB version, and $399 for the 64-gigger, available some time in October.
The only Apple device worth buying.

2 years ago, I got the 32GB iPod Touch 4G as my first mp3 player and I had to buy two more to share the device with my friends. For the 3 of us, it was our first Apple device and it blew us away with the build quality and amazing experience. I love the 720 HD videos but the camera sucked at 0.7 MP. This new iPod is lighter, has Siri, a bigger screen, a faster processor so it's a no-brainer to buy. Plus it now can record videos in 1080 and has a 5 MP sensor for the camera, thus fixing the shortfalls with the previous version. I am looking to buy at least 7 iPod Touch 5G's and maybe as many as 10 before the end of the year -- this device is going to make a lot of friends very happy. Besides the iPod Touch, I also recommend the iPad -- I have the iPad 2 and that is a great tablet. However, it's not portable enough to give as gifts -- the iPod Touch is small and lightweight. I am going to wait to see how the iPad mini comes out before compiling my X-mas gift list. This time, I am ordering my Otterbox Reflex case **before** I buy the iPod Touch. It's going to be sad giving away my iPod Touch 4G since it's helped me make so much money during these past two years.

I like it, just hate the wrist strap and the price, but it is Apple we're talking about here.

Apple is running out of designs or may be scared to introduce new desings.

I feel this is the one place Android is missing a device. There are the samsung galaxy media players, but i'm not a huge fan of samsung products.

The Sony WALKMAN series works VERY well, the Walkman "Z" is HUGE however, larger than even a Droid X! The Walkman "X" although not an android media player, was the PERFECT music player, if they only made it with android, a 3.7" screen and .3 inches thick and kept the same design scheme as the X it would be PERFECT!

Samsung tried and failed. The unsold Galaxy media players are collecting dust on the shelves because Samsung didn't understand the market. What Samsung tried to do was piggy back of its smartphones but they gutted the Galaxy Players -- for example, these devices come with a 3.2 MP shooter; yes it's a better camera than the iPod Touch 4G but it's camcorder sucks since it can't record HD videos. Samsung should have included a 5 MP camera/camcorder instead. Penny wise, but pound foolish!
