A Different Perspective on Music
Today's trend in music players complicates simplification. On the multitude of mp3/ mp4 players, the Apple iPod Touch of 16GB is certainly among the best performing devices of its kind. Forget the classic batteries that ended when listening to an audio cassette or CD! Now you have a rechargeable (USB) lithium polymer battery, so you can enjoy 22 hours of music and 5 hours of video (wow!). You have the possibility to store thousands of tracks, dozens of videos and/ or movies.
The design of the iPod is minimalist, the buttons have been "forgotten" in favor of the touch screen option, which means you have to use your fingers or a joystick to navigate the menu. Apple’s discrete headphones are the right accessory for this device that weights just 120 grams. In addition, you can match your iPod on any occasion and with any clothing, whether you're jogging, cycling, street walking, having lunch breaks, or sipping hot beverages at the coffee shop.
