Description

The 2012 iPod touch is probably the biggest redefinition the series has seen since its launch. For the first time, the iPod touch arrives with a bigger, 4-inch display, a 5-megapixel iSight camera shooting 1080p video, and a selection of vibrant colors. The iPod touch has a brilliant new design putting it in a category where it’s thinner and lighter than the iPhone, and with a unique lace it almost looks like this device is now not just a music player, but also a camera replacement.

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED.

Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
