Already got an awesome BlackBerry phone but need an MP3 player? Stick with your BlackBerry but achieve the coolness factor of the iPhone when you get the Apple 16 GB iPod touch.

With the iPod touch, you can even ‘act’ like you have an iPhone if you wish, by putting the iPod touch up next to your ear and talking into it to your “imaginary friend” while walking down the street. No one will even notice, especially if you cover enough of it with your hand and speak into it briefly. Just say, “My i-PHONE is running out of batteries … i’ll call you later on my i-PHONE.” Then do a fake “hang-up” and place the iPod touch back in your pocket. It’s that Easy!

Grab yourself the best MP3 player in existence right now, the Apple 16GB iPod Touch. Or, if you prefer, you can get the 32GB or 8GB versions.

iPod touch Key Features

  • Revolutionary multi-touch interface (like the iPhone)
  • Gorgeous 3.5-inch widescreen color display
  • Music downloads straight from iTunes
  • Surf the web with Wi-Fi
  • Music, Video, Photos, and more

Multi-touch

itouch icon multi-touch interfaceiPod touch features the same revolutionary interface as iPhone. Built to take full advantage of the large 3.5-inch display, the multi-touch interface lets you control everything using only your fingers. So you can glide through albums with Cover Flow, flick through photos and enlarge them with a pinch, or zoom in and out on a section of a web page. And iPod touch features a touchscreen QWERTY keyboard perfect for browsing the web in Safari, searching for videos on YouTube, finding music on the iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store, or adding new contacts.

Ambient Light Sensor
The iPod touch display has an ambient light sensor that automatically adjusts brightness to suit the ambient light in your surroundings. The result? A better experience for you and battery-saving efficiency for iPod touch.

Accelerometer
Apple 16 GB iPod touch An accelerometer detects when you rotate iPod touch from portrait to landscape, then automatically changes the contents of the display, so you immediately see the entire width of a web page, your music in Cover Flow, or a photo in its proper aspect ratio.

Music

itouch icon musicIf a picture says a thousand words, think of what all the album art in your collection might say. With Cover Flow on iPod touch, you can flick through your music to find the album you want to hear. And when you do, a quick tap of the cover flips it over to display a track list. Another tap starts the music.

Video

itouch icon videoThe 3.5-inch display gives you video like nothing you’ve seen before on a portable device. Watch your favorite movie. Catch up on television shows, anywhere. Enjoy video podcasts. Play music videos. All using multi-touch technology that lets you bring up onscreen controls and go widescreen (or back to full screen) with a tap.

Photos

Or perform some sleight of hand by opening two fingers to zoom in. You can even play slideshows, complete with music and transitions. Set any photo as your wallpaper to personalize your iPod touch…with a touch.

Safari

Sync your bookmarks or add a few as you go. Search the web using the touchscreen keyboard. Zoom in and out by tapping the multi-touch display. And now, iPod touch does even more with the introduction of web apps.

YouTube

iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store

Browse New Releases, What’s Hot, Genres, and Top 10 selling songs. Or find exactly what you’re looking for with a quick search. Tap a song to preview it or tap Buy to purchase it. From anywhere.

Starbucks Music

itouch icon starbucksYou walk into a Starbucks. Order your latté. While you wait, you hear a song wafting from the loudspeakers. You love it. So you get out your iPod touch and buy it over Wi-Fi. Just like that. The iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store on iPod touch tells you what’s playing in select Starbucks and lets you buy it along with other featured Starbucks content. So you can sip, shop, and listen.
