Apple announced earlier the next generations of iPods. The 4th generation of iPod Touch or you can call it the iPod Touch 4. Just like the 1st gen iPod Touch; the new iPod Touch has the gut and pieces of the iPhone 4; FaceTime, Retina display and HD video recording, it is also thinner than the previous iPod Touch. It’s really just the iPhone 4 they just removed the phone feature.
